Challenge 27 - Christmas Stockings...

Ha ha Max has left me in charge! Is she mad or what? Well she was certainly due for a holiday. I just hope the shock of our new challenge is not too much for her when she gets back, because this week our theme is ...

Christmas Stockings

Yes, get out your felt pieces and embroidery thread and get stitching those masterpieces to hang at the end of the bed or mantleshelf. You can add sequins, beads and any form of elaborate embroidery and we would love to see names embroidered around the top too!
Ha ha ha - pick yourselves up off the floor and recover from the shock. I'm only kidding, although if you want to sit up all night and create a masterpiece feel free, but I think most of us will be quite happy to dig out or even treat ourselves to a new stamp (digi or rubber) to create something gorgeous, but not quite so time consuming, for this weeks theme.

The team here at Bah! Humbug! did some spending and invested in a couple of new stamps. Check out Irene's cute digi stamp and Ann's Stampavie cuties. Any excuse to buy something new! 
I'm not sure if Debs our Guest Designer bought anything for this challenge, but oh my what a lush card. We sure hit gold when choosing our Guest Designers earlier in the year as they never fail to amaze us with their stunning entries.
As always please click on the links to visit our blogs for more details about these cards and maybe even leave a lovely comment to make our day.

The entries to our challenges so far this year have just been 'blow your socks off' type gorgeous so all of us here can't wait to see what you come up with for this week's challenge.  Please don't forget the deadline for the challenge is...

12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 22nd July 2010

Remember you are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card (or a handstitched Christmas Stocking)... in fact, show us as many different projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your work.

If you don't know how to leave a direct link then don't worry we will find you.  We prefer everyone to leave comments rather than have a Linky gadget on our challenge.  It's so much nicer to get to know people and become friends as the weeks go by.

Ann, Irene, Max
