One of My Favorite Ornaments from 2009

I made this last fall from a K&Co ornament paper pad I bought a couple of years ago. I added red rhinestones I've had about 20 years and some pink ribbon that is almost that old and some brand new green stickles from a Stickles Christmas package. I love it when I don't have to go to the store in the middle of  a project : ). The polka dots were pre-glittered by the manufacturer.

The only instruction they give you in the paper pad is a picture of the end result. So it can be a bit of a brain tease if you haven't made any of these before lol.

The ornament is about 3 1/2 inches from pointy tip to pointy tip. The angel is closer to the camera, it's only about 1/2 inch high, and yes Baby Sister, it glows in the dark lol.

First Pedestal Card

I made my very first Pedestal Card today to include in a RAK (random act of kindness), it was tiny (only 4" x 4") and I added a lot of dimension to the base so it wouldn't slip. I forgot to take a picture lol. I embellished it with a tiny Eiffel Tower stamp. I know, you're shocked I would use the Eiffel Tower lol.

I had a great time making it though and I see a lot of these in my future. Those I'll try to remember to take pictures of before I package them up and mail them out.
