Paper Cupcake Challenge - Ornaments

Hello everyone - once again an extremely busy week - I think from now till Christmas I will be lucky if I can post once a week - in one way it is good that I am on the design team for Paper Cupcakes because when my life gets this busy it forces me at least to post for the once a week challenge. I know in January my busyness will slow down and then I should be able to get back to posting more regularly. This weeks challenge at There's Magic in the Air is to make an ornament. This challenge really scared me at first because we had to make something other than a card and I was really afraid to step out of my comfort zone - but again challenges are good as they force us to try something we normally would not do and we sometimes surprise ourselves and realize that we can really do it. My ornament was made with these adorable love penguins - in a past challenge I did use this image for a card. I made the image much smaller this time and colored it with my copics. I actually used a couple of creative memories circles for the actual ornament and a SU punch for the top of the ornament. I added the snow on the bottom half which I also ran through my cuttlebug to give it texture (swiss dots). I used DP for the background and a sizzix die cut for the heart. I added some jewels and pearls and a black/white gingham ribbon. I think this could also be used as a tag as it opens up. Thank you for stopping for for a visit and maybe you can get a chance to play along yourself. Check out the wonderful creations the rest of the DT have made here. Hope you have a great Monday and a wonderful week (in case I don't get another post until next Monday). Bye for now!!

Your stamping friend, Debbie
