Happy Tuesday all!! I hope everyone in the USA had a great Thanksgiving Holiday!!  I know I did!! It was a nice quiet weekend that we shared as a family.  Although I am still not able to get around very well due to the muscle pull in my leg, I had the the opportunity to supervise the girls and my dear hubby with the Christmas decorations.  We really did quite a lot done!!! I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs and something to add to my holiday decor!!!

This week's challenge is to Deck the Halls!!  We want to see those ornaments or something hanging on your creation!! 

 I decided to make an ornament and treat box in one.  For this first ornament I used the Ornaments Stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs as well as the Cardinal Ornaments for the sentiment.  The ornament shape is cut out with the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament.

Here is a side view:

Here is a side view from the top so you can see the delicious Lindt chocolates!!

Here is a second ornament I created with the Ornaments stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Chickadee Ornaments Stamp set.  This one I added some pearls and gold baubles to.  The image is colored with copics.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
