A stocking full of toys

This is for sketch 18 on Peachy Keen:

It's also good for:

Pile it on 28: 'chip chip' (the 'toys' tag is made of chipboard) - which asks for lots of other challenges, as does:
Irit Shalom designs royal challenge 2: 'celebrate holidays',

so here are the rest:

Color dare 47: 'really green chocolate' - green galore, chocolate chip (the teddy), real red
Color throwdown 73: 'kiwi kiss, real read, always artichoke, cool Caribeean (a little blue on this card)'
Crafty creations 46: 'traditional Christmas' - red, green, gold
Divine Diva inspiration 18: 'be inspired by beautiful soaps by Mistral' (red, green, white)
Hand full of stamps 9: 'it's all about the red' (hope the digi stamp is OK)
Just us girls 12: ' a colour challenge' - raspberry, kraft (the teddy), green, red
Sparkle creations Christmas 2010 2: 'red and green'
Fiskarettes: 'red, gold and green'
Hope stamps eternal cupcake inspiration 38
Kelly Jo color chef 32: 'red, green, white or cream'
Diva coffee break designs 158: 'rich razzleberry, chocolate chip (hope the teddy counts as this), rose red, old olive'
Dottie's world: 'Christmas stocking' (the pile of presents is a Charmed download, coloured with copics)
Tuesday taggers: 'jolly old St Nick' - he is on here at the bottom right and plenty of evidence that he's been!
Stamp with fun 37: 'little presents' (hope a 'digi stamp' is OK)
Polka doodles 31: 'free theme'
365 cards 292: 'ad inspired' - picture of hanging Christmas stockings
Cards for men: 'Christmas' - this card is suitable for a little boy
Simon says: 'merry Christmas'
Theme Thursday: 'legs' (they go into stockings! and the toys have legs)
Cooking it up with Katie 7: 'use a Christmas theme, add ribbon, use any current sketch challenge'
Crafty catz 13: 'fairy tale of New York' - the night before Christmas
Dare U 2 digi 28: 'last minute Christmas cards' (the digi image is the Charmed presents download coloured with copics)
One stop craft 59: 'Christmas love'
Magical crafts 4: special Christmas or birthday' - special card for a little boy
Incy wincy 22: 'father/mother Christmas'
Pink elephant 45: 'winter and/or Christmas'
Sophisticat 15: 'Christmas theme' - anything goes
Cafe mojo: 'wishes for the holidays!!'
One powerful hour: 'holiday music' - song: 'Here comes Santa Claus' (this week the card was made within the hour)
Twisted Thursday: 'share your holiday cards'
Stamp something: 'holiday somethings' (hope it's OK that the stamp is a 'digi')
Saturday surprise: 'home for the holidays' (definitely a magical homely scene when the stocking's been hung and filled)
Lots to do 51: 'free theme'
Caardvarks: 'use a digital element' (the Charmed presents download coloured with copics)
Creative card crew 41: 'anything goes'
Creative craft 4: 'waiting for Santa'
Die cuts R us 20: 'naughty or nice' (a stocking full of toys is definitely nice - but not for naughty ones!)
C.R.A.F.T. 30: 'free for all'
Bee crafty 20: 'circles' (the three at the bottom right - and the coloured in presents are a Charmed digi download)
Susie's sassy 4: 'a touch of gold' - I used a Sakura gold metallic pen to colour the ribbon on one of the presents on the digi stamp - there's also gold foiling on the stocking
ECP 2: stocking project
Etsy inspired 67: 'kindly noted' - I chose this item:

So here is the card - I used DCWV background paper (I've had this for ages); the chipboard and the little circles are Brenda Pinnick, the ribbon across the top is a PM rub on.
