Do I Know It's Christmastime?

Whew! What a week!  I've been suffering big time with the old RA - bloomin' thing is active again and causing havoc!  So I've been a bit slow in making stuff and slower still in my (yet to happen) Christmas preparations.  Oh dear! You'd think I didn't know it was all happening in 9 days (eeeek!). 

Thankfully, tonight's project killed three birds with one stone, so to speak.  You know how it is - three siblings, got to have the same but different so no-one feels left out.  So, with this in mind, I set to and made these three cute little stockings, as tags/money holders for my three nieces:

I'm so pleased with how they turned out.  Three the same but very different, a bit like my nieces in fact!  (No, they're not triplets but they are all my brother's children!)

This one's for the eldest - a bit more sophisticated than the others, perfect for a 20-year old.

This one's for the middle one, who's almost 19.

And this one's for the youngest - 15 years old and still in her pink phase!

The pink one above is also a gift holder - a universal gift voucher, shall we say? (Yup, money!)

So, two tags and a gift done - that just leaves the rest of the gift shopping, the food and the decorations.  Wish me luck!

This is my entry for the following challenges:

Paperplay - 'Holiday Tags'
Scrap-Creations Challenge ' 'Make It a Tag'
Everybody Art Challenge - 'A gift'
City Crafter - 'Use Kraft card'

I'm going to eat, make lists and then fall asleep - perhaps if I dream hard enough, the dream fairies will come and finish everything off for me? 

Happy crafting.
