Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!!

Today it is freezing here!!  28 degrees!  Yuck!! I am so not ready for winter.  Why can't it stay for a while longer.....

Anywho...today I have an ornament to share with you.  Time seems to be flying by and winter and Christmas are on the way.  It is definitely time to get cracking on all the holiday creations.  I do love the holidays though so to me it is fun (when it does not become so crazy busy that you can not reflect on the true meaning of the season).
Not to long ago Your Next Stamp had a holiday stamp release with some very adorable images.  For my ornament, I chose Ellie Loves to skate.

For my creation, I colored Ellie with copics, cut her out and popped her on dimensionals.  The snowflake background is metallic with lots of glitter.  The snowflakes hanging from the ornament are buttons (4 buttons sewn together so there is no wrong side, I figured they may twirl a lot.)

One of my dearest and best  friends challenged me to not sew on my creation....Well I flunked that challenge...I really thought the gold thread would add some elegance to my ornament and also would keep the ornament in tack better.  I am a stitching junky!!

Challenges I entered my ornament in:
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle-buttonsPollycraft- It is chill timeMarks Finest Papers - Holiday Bee Crafty - ChristmasOne Stop Craft - Anything GoesWee Memories - Anything Goes   Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything GoesABC Challenge - 'G' is for GlitterStampavie - ChristmasPapertake Weekly - Sparkly and BrightTip Top Tuesday - Christmas InspiredCraft Your Passion: Anything Goes Lexi's Creations: Anything goes; A Spoon Full of Sugar - Relish to embellishThe Crafty Pad-#95 StitchingFussy and Fancy - Winter WonderlandOSAAT- Christmas- Traditional or ModernTotally Papercraft- Bling it on (glitter and lots of it)Cowgirl Sunday Challenge: Bling It On.

I wanted to give a shout out for my dear friend Angela whose birthday is this monthShe has some awesome candy up for grabs.  You may want to go and check it out.  And while you are there....take a look at her fabulous creations.  Angela's creations are always over the top and her coloring is tops!!!  Not to mention, she is the sweetest friend ever.  Just click on her name above to get to her blog.


Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments!! Have a great day!!

hugs,
