Shabby Chic Holiday # 145

Time to show you the gorgeous photo Debbie has chosen to inspire you in "The Shabby Tea Room" this week.

Debbie asks that you use the colours Pink,  Aqua , white/cream and add glitter.

As I write this post, I'm looking at my Christmas stocking card dreaming of winter and snow!! This time last year we were visiting my husbands family in Canada. My kids saw snow for the first time:) 
But instead I'm sitting here in the heat.......Oh it is so so Hot today!

I used Art Philosophy cartridge and my gypsy to weld the stocking shape together at the top to make the card. The pink pattern paper has a lace design on it which was perfect for my shabby stocking. I also used the cricut to cut the glittery Holy leaves. Then I embellished with a few of my favourite things!!

Best Wishes sentiment is from Paper Sweeties ..........Paper Sweeties is sponsoring this challenge.

Hope you can join us ........pop over to the Design Teams blog and see their beautiful shabby creations.
