We Make A Great Pair

Hello there! I had some crafty time today, so I thought I'd make a card using the most recent sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the current color combo from The Play Date Cafe.

Here's my take:

Anyone else have "a thing" for cute socks??? My mountain friends and I are all about socks---especially the Smart Wool variety! They are so snuggly soft and toasty warm---and they come in really fun colors and patterns!

So...when I saw these stamps from Amuse Studio...I just HAD to have them! They're actually stockings from a set called "Deck the Halls," but I think they make uber cute socks as well!!! I paper pieced them (of course) and can't wait to make like a hundred more pairs in different patterns and color combos!! HA! The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word using a font called "Traveling Typewriter" from I think this would make a fun anniversary card!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love it! The chevrons in the bg work these fun socks perfectly. I've just got a fab socks stamp from Unity, and I can't wait for it to meet ink, thanks for the gentle reminder.
And Thanks for sharing with us at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!
