Christmas Ornament

Good morning blogging friends! I know it has been a few days since my last post. I have just been busy trying to get things ready for the holidays and trying to finish up some Christmas cards. I wanted to let you all know my new meds are starting to work and I am starting to feel a little better. I also wanted to thank all of you who left me comments about trying ginger tea--I think it is helping too! Now if this darn weather would straighten out maybe then I would be feeling better all the way around. It has been raining, cold, windy and now they are taking about snow for tonight. All of the crazy changes with the weather seem to really effect my RA too. But for the most part I am starting to feel a little better with each passing day. Thank you all so much for your comments, and continued thoughts and prayers!!!

Ok are you ready to see what I have to share with you for today? I made a paper Christmas ornament using several papers from Discount Cardstock, die templates from Spellbinders™ and ribbon and trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Check out the fun little pine cones! After hearing all about the pine cones Tim Holtz made on one of his 12 Tags of Christmas (day one) I just had to try making them using the S4-351 Spiral Blossom One die templates from Spellbinders and it works perfectly! I was able to make these two little pine cones and there was still enough paper left from one die cut to make another one. So from one die cut you can make three little pine cones! Gotta love that!! I brushed the tips of the pine cones with white acrylic paint and then added some glitter.

I used S5-055 Layered Poinsettia, Azalea Metallic and Copic Marker RV69 Peony to create the pretty little poinsettia. I added Camille White Crochet Lace for a border and Smokey Blue Seam Binding for the bow and hanger. I also added Baby Bling White Pearls from Want2Scrap to the center of the flower.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Hugs & Smiles,
