Chipboard @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is that time ... time for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ... 

This challenge was just screaming at me to dig out the Kaisercraft Chipboard Stocking bunting that I brought 2 years ago and have never 'gotten around to' starting, let along finishing! 
It is a rather large piece when finished and strung all together.  And I have customized a stocking for each member of the family and have some close ups to share with you all too :) 

Mummy's Stocking, 1st cab off the rank and well let's face it ... 
It's all about me! :P

Daddy's the 2nd in charge around here so his stocking is next in line. 

Chloe's is next, the other princess in the house and the next biggest ego with 'It's all about me!' syndrome. 

Dylan comes in next to bat for the boys again and even up the color combo.

Last but not least is the carefree and adorable floating fairy Emilie. 

Graphic 45 papers again at play here!  Thought it was about time I stopped stashing them and used them, and these are all from collections released in 2011.  I could not go past my Prima box of goodies and raided my stash for all the embellishments on the toes of the stockings.  I didn't use them sparingly either!  My Prima stash was actually a very lucky find at a scrapbook closing down sale and a bargain!  The Prima stand was fully stocked plus some more and I jokingly offered the lady 100 bucks for the lot and she said YES! OMG my jaw hit the floor, my wallet opened so fast, everything was off the stand and in the boot of my car in under 5 minutes.  And even though the lady was ever so kind and helped me pull everything off the stand and pack it nicely into boxes (there was 4 huge boxes), I was so worried she was going to change her mind lol.  

Surprisingly I love to haggle (daddy is even worse!) but of all my 'crafty finds' my Prima stash would be the best.  This find was just over a year ago before we moved to Perth and let's face it, I craft a lot, we could say at least one card a week and I always dig into my Prima embellishment stash and I have not even made a dint in it yet! 

We would love you to play along with us at 
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I hope I see you there :)
