The Stockings were Hung - Take Two

Hi friends - hope you're having a wonderful weekend!! I'm back with a second card for Christmas Kickstart Challenge 51 to use a stocking - with or without a fireplace. Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Solar White; 
Paper Studio black and red
Stamps - Hero Arts From the Vault Home Scene
Stencil - Memory Box Diamond Texture (retired)
Other - Copic Markers, pencils to shade,
foam tape, Hero Arts clear & yellow lacquer;
Taylored Expressions Oreo &
Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks

I shopped in person at my local JoAnn's yesterday and spotted some stamp sets I'd been resisting. Since on sale at 30% off, I bought a few - including this vintage Christmas one. I had to have the kitty on the rug; isn't she sweet?!! They didn't carry the matching dies but, no worries, I ordered them. For today's card I just fussy cut the stockings and kitty. After creating my scene I decided the "walls" needed something so I added some light stenciling - thought it turned out great. Hope you got a smile out of Mr. Mouse adding his little stocking to the mantle.

I'm also adding (entry 2) to the current Watercooler Wednesday All About Occasions Challenge. And to the current NBUS Challenge since my stamp set is getting first play today. Thanks to all for the fun challenges!

Thanks for stopping and have a great weekend! I'll be celebrating Father's Day tomorrow (previously shared my card for Dad) but I'll be back on Monday with my Die Cut Diva post. Hope to see you then! We're doing birthdays at DCD this month so hope to see your birthday card with a die cut &/or embossing folder in the gallery!!

I was a bit worried at first, but now I'm not worried that you ordered the die cuts. LOL

I love the scene.
