Merry Monday Challenge #98

Hello & Happy Monday!

It's time for another terrific challenge from over at Merry Mondays!
This week we have a terrific challenge so I hope you can grab some supplies and play along!

Here we go!


This challenge was a wonderful one but boy, did it stump me! I guess I really do not have much in country Christmas stamps! As I sat and stewed over this it hit me that I had a scrapbook kit that Stampin Up had out when I first got into stamping. It is called Hand Stitched Holiday and I also seem to think there was a coordinating stamp set. Anyways, I dug out the kit and used a few pieces from it for this card. The DSP is also from the kit. I did however stamp the little sentiment, punched it out from the small Oval Punch and sponged some Chocolate Chip around the edges to give it a country feel. I also added 2 buttons tied with twine on the swag and also on the stocking. I was quite pleased with it!
 

On the inside I put another punched out swag and stamped a sentiment that I felt was perfect for this challenge. What do you think??

And your card just proves that us stampers should never get rid of anything LOL. This is perfect for the challenge, Wendy. I, too, really struggled with this challenge. PS: Happy Birthday to Gigi.
