Another Christmas card without a Christmas tree

Hope you are not bored by a series of Christmas cards.  They are always fun to make and fun to look at and after all, who does not look forward to Christmas? 

When I first saw the sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday, I wanted to put a Christmas tree on the left panel.  Again?  Let's try something new!  Let's take a look at the sketch first:

So I resisted the temptation to include a tree on the left panel, I rotated the sketch and replaced the matted oval with a stocking:

One stocking is too lonely, so I added one more next to it .  It is more balanced this way and we prepare more room for Santa to put presents in.

This card is also entering the Catch The Bug Challenge, the theme is Anything Goes!

Thanks for stopping by!
