One winner will win 2 stamp sets  (winners choice) valued at $12.95 -total retail value: $26.90 per prize! from The {Stamps} of Life.
&
One winner will win the Ultimate Color Sampler Pack ($25 value!) from The Twinery!!!
The prize winners will be announced on The {Stamps}of Life and The Twinery Blogs on Wednesday November 16th. 
I used two different sets from TSOL for my card. The stocking is from the Christmas2build set and the sentiment is from the Penguins4Christmas set.  I stamped my stocking on white cardstock and then cut it out.  I applied a moderate coating of Tombow multi all over the stocking and let it dry for about 30 minutes.  I then used some red and green baker's twine to fill in the parts of the stocking.  I like how the twine gives it a "knit" kind of look!  I hung my stocking from some more baker's twine and added a couple bows on the end.


Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Emily Leiphart.  If you get lost along the way, check out the entire list of blogs below.
