 Old Time second stocking green bow Old Time first stocking red bow
I did color my images with copic markers. The first picture is for the stocking with the green bow and the second one is for the stocking with the red bow. I also used Spica Pens colors red, olive, gold, baby blue and melon.
Old Time Christmas red close up Old Time Christmas green close up
My images are from Leaves of Time, these are free images calls the image Dec98c. I love their images because they have a vintage look and I think they are stunning. I distress the edges with Vintage Photo ink. I also tried to make the background look like a quilt so I sewed around all the blocks. I cut the stocking out with Spellbinders labels #10. Red gems and green gems. My flowers I made with a loom I made for myself.
I do hope you like my cards. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week end was wonderful. Now with Cards for Men our challenges do not start again until January 2012. So all my Cards for Men follower and everyone else Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and A Healthy, Wealthy, and Joyous New Year for 2012!!!!

Love to all, Patricia
