Shabby Chic Week @ Moving Along With The Times

Yah! It is Thursday! 
Not only does that mean we are one day away from the weekend !
but it is also time for another new challenge at 

Sweety Sue in the hostess with the most-ess this week and she has chosen one of my favs!
Shabby Chic or Vintage Image or Both

It was too hard for me to resist not going the Shabby Chic road today. Being it is freezing here of an evening and when I do most my crafting, my mind can not help but wonder to Christmas at the moment :-)  I love Christmas at any time of the year but I have found that I get most of my Christmas stuff done in in the cooler months.  I am still waiting for hubby to come home one day and surprise me with a plane ticket to New York for a white Christmas (think I will be waiting a while yet though lol)

Anyway enough jibber jabber and on with some pics!

The deets on this little honey - All designed by me :)) so proud as it actually worked!  is the stocking card base and all the stocking accessories (layers and patches) and they were drawn and created on the Silhouette Cameo.  Could not resist decorating it from front to back :$ And I have stitched all the DP layers (from front to back, but it looks soo good that I HAD too do it!)  The patches and the roll over at the top I have embossed with a spotty dotty embossing folder, then ink distressed them.  For the patches they then have had a coat of Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds (looks lush IRL!) and the roll over at the top got a good coating of Flowersoft Diamond Range in Polar White (wow that stuff glitters and shines)! 

Yes I have been having a ball playing with all my new stuff from my recent spending spree! But I did also manage to make a good dent in my old stash of papers, cardstock and flowers.  The paper is from a Christmas Papermania pad that is over a year old now (and never touched OMG that is bad!) and the Prima Flower and bead thingy's I have had sitting around for over 6 months!

We have a super duper sponsor this week and I love to shop here too!

Morning Leesa this is just too darn cute! Well done on all your design and detail the flowers are fabulous as is New York at Christmas time! The first time I went I took my daughter there shopping for her 18th, her birthday is June but we held the trip back so we could go at Christmas - it was magical! I felt like an extra on a film set and to round it off perfectly we got upgraded for free and flew home first class!! WOW!!!
