Christmas Brat Boy Stocking

Today starts a new Stella Says Sketch at Catch the Bug.  For my card, I made a Christmas card to try to keep up with my Christmas stash.  Being from WI he is wearing Packer colors naturally.  This image is Christmas Brat Boy Stocking and I used a sentiment from TLC, Create.
Well yesterday spent the day with my daughter shopping for a dress for her for my parents' Anniversary party.  My daughter is 4'11" and has poor self esteem about her appearance.  So we disagree about what she should wear.  I know that she is beautiful and thin, and she doesn't agree so she picks out clothing that doesn't flatter herself.  She tells me that I just say those things because I'm her Mom, and if I put a picture of the dress she chose online without her hair done she would never forgive me.  We finally purchased one that is gorgeous...so now just have to get some alterations.

Perfectly festive Christmas card. I'm sure the dress and your daughter are beautiful. I have a cousin who is 4'11" as well, and I think she's the perfect size.
