The Stockings Were Hung Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a new and fun blog hop I am participating in. 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there!

This is a blog hop featuring projects inspired by Christmas Stockings! Each of our projects will have at least one stocking on it.

You should have arrived from Rebecca's blog, but if you just so happened to stumble across our hop and need to start at the very start, Connie Can Crop is the beginning of this Special holiday hop!

Check out what I made for you below, then be sure to scroll down to see how you can win three awesome prizes.

Make fun Christmas card with our wonderful range of products. See the complete range here -

For this hop I wanted to create a cozy fireplace with some stockings hanging off it. And a large Christmas themed painting above. Just what I would love to have one year, instead of the really hot days we normally experience. One can dream.

To purchase any of the supplies I used on my project today, please see the shopping list at the bottom of the page.

Like I mentioned above, you can win some amazing prizes. Read on to find out how.
