Christmas Table Setting.....

 Every other year I host Christmas Eve at my house.  I like to dress up the plates with a little something, and this year decided on red stockings for the girls and Christmas trees for the guys.  I used my Cricut Expression, Winter Lace, and the Winter Frolic cartridge.  
I dressed up the stockings with a bit of lace, glitter, jingle bells, tulle, and a computer generated name tag.  
I slid the candy cane through the snowflake and tied the stocking on top of it.  
For the guys, I did the same thing, but used the Christmas tree cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge.  I still used my glitter (LOVE) and some jingle bells that had been sprayed with suede spray paint.  It gives it a cool rustic look! 
Some pearls were added along with a bit of twine.  


I am off today, and could use a few prayers.  Cort is going to the doctor for some issues she has been having.  I am hoping he can shed some light on the situation and get things under control.  
I appreciate your visits immensely, and I know I am a total booger about reciprocating.  I don't mean to be a slacker......it's just life....getting in the way.  I am going to try harder to visit each of you.  That's my early New Year's resolution.
Have a great day my friends!
XOXO
