... well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration!! But I was busy in my craft room yesterday afternoon making some Christmas ornaments for the tree. This week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC67 is great - a plain bauble shape - so many possibilities.
I decided to be quite literal in my interpretation of the sketch - no card - just an ornament for this year's Christmas tree. I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
I cut two copper snowflakes using the 2011 snowflake pendant. On the inside of one die cut I attached some thread and then I glued both dies together. Then I stamped two sets of holly leaves and berries. I cut them all out and used my glue pen to go over them and added lots of glitter. Then I attached a set of leaves and berries to each side of the ornament. Simple but really beautiful. The photo does not do it justice - I'll try to get a better one tomorrow - in natural light!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Festive Foliage
Inks: Distress - Pine Needles, Barn Door
Spellbinders: 2011 Snowflake Pendant (S5-054)

On my CR84FN post - which was prepared yesterday - I commented on the wonderful weather. Well, it's been a bit different today!! It's still very warm but we've lost the sunshine - in fact it's actually been raining. The weather forecast is for fine weather today and tomorrow - so here's hoping!! That's all for now. I'll be back later - I'm off to craft class this morning.
