Happy Saturday!!! I am so thankful to Joanne for allowing me the opportunity to use her computer to post. It looks like my computer has a severe virus and had to go to the computer doctor. I took it to Best Buy and they estimate that I won't get it back until after Thanksgiving weekend (November 30). EEEEK!!!


Anywho... enough about my woes.....on to today's Saturday Spotlight Challenge. This week's challenge is to create an ornament or a card with an ornament on it. It is indeed a fun challenge!!!!


While the Cutting Cafe, supplied the design team with digis for this challenge, I was unable to access them without a computer. Instead I used an adorable image from Inky Impressions called Angelica's Lantern.
I colored her with water color distress inks. The snowflake background is actually a plain metallic snowflake ornament I purchased from Target for $.50. I also used my Spellbinders pendant on metallic silver paper for one of the layers. While it is hard to see in the photo, I added some white yarn for texture as well as silver baubles.
I hope you enjoyed my creation!! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
I hope you will join us for this challenge for this week, if you do, please place the DIRECT link to your creation in Mister Linky here. If you upload your creation to an on-line gallery, please be sure to label it with the keywords SSHP08. Have your creation uploaded in Mister Linky below by Friday Evening, 7:00 PM CST in order to qualify for any prizes awarded for this sponsor week. Link your creation back to the Saturday Spotlight Challenge blog.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!!!
