You've Got To Be Kidding!

Christmas morning came with anticipated joy 
with visions of toys for this little Boy
He awoke with a start and went straight down stairs
To find all the toys Santa was sure to have left there.
Not a gift was in sight
And that caused him a fright.
He ran for his stocking
But when he was peeking
He started to frown.
Oh No, he exclaimed
Only coal could be found!

Isn't he a cutie.  He is called Stocking Full of Coal.  He is one of that Sassy Cheryl Alger's creations.  I just love her sassy little people.  That may have something to do with me being a Sassy ole' thing myself. There's a whole lots of stuff going on with this card.  I colored with Copics a bit, paper pieced a bit, embossed a bunch, a bit of bling, ribbon, sports buttons and even a bit of crackled glaze on the coal.  The  Sassy gals have issued another "Anything Goes Challenge" this week.  I like those challenges, because you can just create whatever you are in the mood to do.  I am definitely in the Christmas mood for sure.  What are you in the mood to do?  Post something and share with us.  There is a gift certificate at stake here for you.

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:


  1. Awesome! Gorgeous DP and great texture going on. Love the ornaments going down the side.

  11. Too cute Linda and the sentiment is perfect, though I don't think he will get any takers. Great rhyming skills too :)

  12. I obviously haven't been keeping up with you as you've been one very busy crafter. I adore this card and that tree with that little fellow is priceless. I wouldn't want to be his parents would you? This is truly an Anything Goes all the way down to techniques used. Oh and I adore the poem.

Happy Crafting, Linda
