JB12:01...No Time Like the Present(s)



Hello and howdy do! I hope you are all doing well and feeling well. I am doing well, but as for feeling well, not so much. Dear hubby gave me the cold he had last week...sigh. I guess that's what marriage is all about, isn't it...share and share alike! LOL

It's time again for the fabulous Jingle Belles to bring us challenges, and this one involves using wrapping paper in our projects. I have been waiting to make this card for at least a year, maybe two! I saw one similar in a group I belong to, and have wanted to make one since. Well, thanks to Stef and Lauren, now I have this one outta my system! I used a small bit of dp from a pack I've had for awhile (read as, I can't remember the name)..., and some shiny red wrapping paper for the iris folded stocking. I covered the top of the stocking with some white felt, and sponged all around it in a bright red. I used the lacy circle Spellbinder die to mat it, and added a Studio G sentiment in the upper left corner. I guess that's about it for this one...I'm looking forward to the next challenge over at Jingle Belles! Take care!
