Christmas Stocking pup

Afternoon Folks!

Wow, can you believe we are half way through December? I still feel like I missed November somewhere .... Of course the BIG event is next weekend - try not to panic anyone!!

Just thought I'd share the Christmas card I made for my hubby (at least I have that done!)
This stamp was in a job lot from ebay, cost quite a bit in postage and there was only one other nice stamp in there but I had to have this one - LOL!! 
I'm prowling around ebay quite often now looking for PB stamps as there don't seem to be many UK stockists anymore :-(
If anyone can recommend any please shout.

Back to the card, this stamp is called 'That Xmas Feeling', coloured with promarkers. I've combined it with an assortment of papers from my scraps folders along with a brand new piece of First Edition green 'Fairisle' paper which reminded me of knitting. I still struggle to start a new pad of paper, the stroking and admiring period can last ages before the scissors arrive! 
I kept the embellishment fairly simple as hubby doesn't do fussy!

As it's Christmas, I glittered his hat ... me ... his pom pom .... the desk and floor!

Have a great day whatever you're doing and thanks for visiting!
