CCEE1349 - Stocking

As the end of the month is very busy, the CCEE Stampers will have only two challenges this month -- this week and next week.  Frances Byrne has brought us this week's challenge, inspired by the poem A Visit from St. Nicholas.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house 
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; 
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, 
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Our challenge was to make a project which includes a stocking.  I used a Sizzix die and embossing folder, as well as a couple of stamped images.
