Cosy Christmas

Good morning, it's time for our regular Christmas theme challenge at Fab'n' Funky, once a month we have a Christmas theme allowing us to get ahead with our festive makes! It's anything goes as long as it's Christmas!
I used a lovely Woodware Stamp (FRS709 Cosy Stocking) previously untouched by human hand...or ink! It's quite a large stamp so I kept my design very simple. I used my copics to colour and added a piece of twine and two little wooden pegs over those drawn in the image. Sentiment is a Penny Black Stamp. 
There's some lovely inspiration from my teamies over on the Challenge Blog, so why not hop over and take a peek! We'd love to have you play along too... we're always looking for more inspiration!
Thanks for visiting
Enjoy your day

Oh My! This is so darn sweet. I LOve your design Chris.
Your 'line' is just perfect.
Think we all suffer from stamps and images that are waiting to see daylight, bit like paper stashes lol.

I cannot begin to imagine, Chris, how you delicately applied these darling colors, bringing out the sweetness of the season! The little twine and clothes pins are extra cute, and so is the wrapped holly garland! Using the snowing panel in the background is a wonderful way of keeping the outdoors feeling and the brrr-cold sensation! LOL Love this card! hugs, de
