Christmas Stockings ~ Double D Challenges

Hello friends ~ Double D Challenges has a new challenge starting today and the theme is "Christmas Stockings".


I pulled out an older set from Elizabeth Craft Designs to make this familiar Christmas scene.

This brings back memories for me of my childhood, when me and my two sisters would hang our stockings on the fireplace on Christmas Eve, in anticipation of the jolly ole' elf himself to sneak in the night to fill them.

The greens and poinsettias are from Spellbinders.

You can join in on the fun here at Double D Challenges

Here's the mood board to help inspire you:


And here's the prize that you could win when you play along:


I hope for you and your family, that your Christmas season is filled with peace and joy and many precious memories.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love LOVE how your whole card is the fireplace Birgit, and those stockings and the Poinsettia garland over the mantle are FABULOUS!! We never had stockings at Christmas when I was growing up, but our girls still love them and when I mentioned about not doing them anymore last year, I got quite a bit of NOOOOOOOOOOOO from all of them!! Will have to go dig out my stocking stamps and play along with this one!! Hugs. :0)

  6. Now there's a fireplace! How cute this is with the fire burning in the grate. I love the stockings and the pretty colors you chose. I was always afraid to hang the stockings over the fireplace, but now we have a pellet stove insert so I can hang them from the mantle off to the side. Your card evokes a very cozy vibe.
