Christmas Tag and Photo Card

After our Canadian Thanksgiving's celebration, it's feeling a lot like.... Christmas!!? Say YES! Anyhow here's the latest creation as my DT assignment for Kathy Martin's Digital Doodles (shop here). Do check Kathy's blog for more inspiration and a giveaway of her digie (see here).
I absolutely adore the stocking...as you can see.  This time I decided to make it a long tag/card.
After printing the image, I embossed it with one of the small Hero Arts snowflakes stamp. I also stamped the round die cut with the Raindrop Background (see here)

Here is the collage of various shots
While we are talking about Christmas tag, I'm sharing a photo card that I made over the weekend.
Merry Christmas (photo card)
You can't really go wrong with the photo card when you have smiley faces like this :)

As we were converting our old home videos to DVDs, we came across this little cute video of  our then 3-year old Stephanie (dancing to the Phantom of the Opera all on her own). What a doll, huh?
