Stockings...Inkspirational Challenge #150 Word Prompt~Gift, TIME OUT Challenge #98~Home Sweet Home


TEN DAYS!!! Eeeeeeeee! I'm wavering between super excited and super panicked about the approach of Christmas. Kind of ready; sort of not...How about you?

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #150~GIFT! Perfect timing for this word prompt, right? 

We're delighted to welcome wonderfully talented Valentyna, as our guest designer. Her card is gift-a-licious! 

My gift-themed card was inspired by the lovely festive decor over at TIME OUT Challenge #98~Home Sweet Home

STAMPlorations Warm Hands, Warm Heart images for the stockings and sentiment, placed on a kraft panel stamped with the Barnwood Background from Concord and 9th.

Please visit my teammates over at Inkspirational; they have 'gifts' to share with you! Hope, in this busy season, you'll find time to join us! See you in the gallery!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! (we'll be with your throughout the holiday season, too!)
