Crafting When We Can #4 Christmas comes early

Well it's just over two months until the big day so over at CWWC we'd like to see your Christmas projects this time. We're being sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps and the DT were given images to use. I chose Xmas Kitty:

I've made a hanging ornament for a special little girl's first Christmas. Image is coloured with promarkers and cut out with a circle nestie and matted on to two scalloped circles. The pink circle has been stamped with snowflakes and embossed with white EP (although it doesn't really show in the photo). Project is finished with pink ribbon for hanging, a bow tied with gorgeous blue snowflake ribbon, a snowflake button and some stickles.
Do pop over to the challenge blog to see my team mates creations.

  3. By far, prettier and MUCH more sentimental to have a homemade first Christmas ornament. What a really sweet gesture! Your ornament is darling with all the sparkles and that cute pastel image. I'm loving that snowflake button too. Nicely done. :D
