Unity Stocking Flair...

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there. -Henry Livingston
Happy Friday!!! Today is Unity Friends with Flair and Blogger's Challenge day!!! I used the sketch from the BC today and this Gorgeous stocking stamp that I have been dying to ink up for months! The paper is Merry Days of Christmas by My Mind's Eye...I LOVE the colors of this paper!!! Here is a look at the sketch we used...


I still had my sewing machine out so I did some sewing again....looking at it now I think I should have sown on the small strip, too.
I tried to mimic the general look of the front on the inside...

Stamps: Stocking (Unity,) Holiday Sentiments (H&M Stamps)
Paper:
Merry Days of Christmas (My Mind's Eye,) Textured Card (DCWV,) White CS (PTI)
