Christmas Ornament


Over at Stampotique this week they are asking for Christmas ornaments to hang on a tree, the front door or a present.  I chose to make a Christmas tree hanging.

Simon Says Stamp have an anything christmassy theme and PanPastelUK have the theme of Christmas time.

I took 3 bottle tops and ran them through the big shot to squish them flat.  I stamped a couple of Stampotique Scary Mary images onto white card, used my smallest circles spellbinder nestie, selected various sections of the images and die cut them.  I coloured them with distress inks and distress markers.  I couldn't resist and added a pair of legs from another image!!!

I can't show you it hanging on a tree, as I don't have one and it's raining outside!!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
