PTI Blog Hop time!

Holy cow – this is my THIRD post of the day! (Scroll down if you haven’t seen the others yet.) I didn’t know I had it in me, but I guess an afternoon nap and a 5:00 cup of coffee enabled me to run up a quick card for the Papertrey Blog Hop tonight.

2stockingsPTIThis card came together a lot faster than it’s taking me to do the photo editing and posting on my super-sluggish computer! In fact, it will be a miracle if I can get it linked up before the deadline.

I originally embossed the cuffs of the stockings (PTI Stocking Prints) with white embossing powder, but after it was all together, I decided to put some glue on it and use some Polar White Flower Soft to give it more dimension. I used my white gel pen to make some bricks for the mantle, and a Copic marker to color in some of the leaves on the Green Tea Leaves paper to pick up the Scarlet Jewel color I used.

Enjoy the Hop!
