Altered Christmas Ornament
I'm supposed to be in Franklin and Nashville, TN today for some Christmas events. We were going with our son, dil, and little ones but my DIL went to the emergency care this morning with a fever and discovered she had the flu. Hubby and I have had flu shots but we left their house as fast as we could. We sure don't want to be sick and didn't know the strain she had or really which strains our flu shot covered. I know the flu vaccine is designed for whatever virus is expected this year but I'm taking no chances. So, the trip is off for this year. That does give me more time for what I need to do at home, though.
Getting to my post, I bought this chipboard ornament at Hobby Lobby and thought I would alter it. Yes, I went with black and white again and used some red/green, too. The paper is unknown and the sentiment and bough are from Inspired by Stamping/Elegant Christmas set. I colored with Copics.
My seam binding is Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler. I added a Martha Stewart punched snowflake and a red rhinestone. The tinsel is around the sides.
I'll enter this in the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery challenge for December.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Let it Snow...they want to see snowflakes, snowfall, snowmen, etc. Well, I have one snowflake on my project so I'm sending it over there.
That's it for me for now. I may do 1-2 more Christmas cards but I really don't think I have time.
Have a wonderful weekend. I have just a bit of shopping left to do and plenty of baking, candy making, and a dinner to plan.
