Hello Kitty!

It's Sunday.....but I have my Saturday Sketch finished. This is Lauren's stocking template from her new line of My Timeless Templates at PTI. I decided to try and make something for Ava's room to set by her kitty Christmas tree. This is what I came up with. I used my Just Rite stamps to create Ava's name and border and the flowers were punched from an old punch of mine. I created the kitty freehand and pieced it together

I like how it turned out and it is really easy to make. I made a 4 1/2" h x 2" w box for the inside with my scor pal. I even sewed with a needle and thread for the tips of the stocking. The colors I used are pink pirouette (SU), pure poppy (PTI) and white. The ribbon is pure poppy saddle stitch from PTI. I think this would be cute with some red tissue paper.....I'll have to grab some tomorrow at Hobby Lobby! They have their wrapping paper on sale 50% off so I'm heading there to get some for my kids Christmas. They have a paisley paper that I want to get for Ethan.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

YES......we are home from Philly and loving it. Ethan is doing great and we are so thankful for that. If all goes well, we should be home until after the new year!!!
IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!!! I just went upstairs to help Ava pick out her jammies and I stepped into the bathroom for a minute and came in to her room hearing her say "It fits!" She put on the stocking!! I said "NO" and she cried because she thought she was in trouble!!! So I guess Lauren's stocking is about a size 8 in case anyone was wondering!
