Velvet Inspiration

That red velvet paper was on my desk screaming to be used and when I was going through my weekly sketches I new that Mojo Sketch 114 was the one to use.  It reminded me of a vintage christmas stocking so I want to stick to that vintage feel.  I borrowed Maureen's large scallop punch at our "playdate" last night but I didn't actually get around to finishing it until just now.  It's a wee late I know but this sketch needed to be tried.

Just a short post tonight.  I'm hoping to put on the finishing touches to my Christmas card and have them ready be to sent out by the end of the week.

My son and daughter had their first music concert this afternoon.  I couldn't have been more proud.  Neither one of them was a bit nervous and they were so proud of themselves.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter for my blog candy .
