Finally - I'm Back

Whoa - it's been a long couple of weeks! I've had that awful stuff that's been going around for the last week and am finally feeling better. Plus I actually have my camera, flash drive and items to take pictures of in the same place! So here is what I did before I got sick.



I love glass ornaments! Instead of using acetate, I used whisper white cardstock. The one on top uses handsome hunter classic ink and the curly label punch bundle. I thru in some snow and hung the Merry Christmas with silver elastic cording. I will be dying some of the whisper white taffeta ribbon handsome hunter to finish it off.

The one underneath uses red riding hood red classic ink, square scallop punch, punches three hostess stamp set and red riding hood taffeta ribbon.

On both of them, I had to go in with a pencil and uncurl the images after they were placed in the ornament, but was able to do it without leaving any creases. And there is an image front and back with the cording glued in between. The next ones I am going to cut off the prongs and just glue the tops on.

The whisper white cardstock was easy to put into the ornament, even doubled.

Gotta add one more picture. This is my 19 year old going on 7 in his halloween costume.
Can I still say he's so cccuuuttteee or is he too old for that - Never!!

Love the ornaments. How hard was it to get the double thickness of paper in them? Your son looks pretty cute too.
