For My Niece















































I created this card and stocking money/gift card holder for my niece. I ususlly give her money and always do something fun with the money, here I have it folded to look like $10, but it is actually a little more. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC49. I used the Verve set Christmas In The Air, I also used FREE digi paper shown here, from the DigiChick. Julee's mojo card today uses the free paper as well, check out her beauties here. I used the checkered embossing folder and some sponging, as well as stitching. Punched a few snowflakes and added glitter and there you have it. I also added another picture of the snow storm we got, they have still not plowed our neighborhood. This is a photo of our neighbor, he has plowed the entire street with his John Deer Snow Blower....thank goodness for awesome neighbors! Enjoy.

  2. Oh how I am having flashbacks from our Christmas last year!! We had almost four feet of the white stuff and thankfully there is a fire hall up the street from us so our street got plowed. That blue sky with the white all around is stunning. LOVE how the snow sparkles when the sun shines on it too. Blessings to your wonderful neighbour!!

    Darling stocking GC holder! Love the stitched patterns and the added snowflakes are darling. Great set!
