Magical Monday Ornament Challenge

Can you believe it's already December and Christmas is rapidly approaching? This year has gone by way too fast and they go faster each year. Yesterday I was 50 and today I'm rapidly approaching 70....lol 

I am honored to present the challenge at Paper Cupcakes this week, which is to create a Christmas ornament keepsake for someone special. It can be as simple as you like or you can fancy and bling it up as much as you want, any color, any size.  Do whatever your heart desires to make that someone feel extra special or to honor the birth of the Christ child, the reason for the season.  Be sure you hop on over to the Paper Cupcakes blog to see all the beautiful ornaments the design team have created for your inspiration.

I am so happy to see a lot of you participating in these challenges. This week we've had over 100 entries and there are some fabulous designs and cards.  Nina always has a free image on the blog for you to use or you can purchase one from the store. It is not required that you use a Paper Cupcakes image but we love it when you do. There are so many cute and wonderful images to choose from there. And, you get entered into the drawing for the prize twice using a PCC image.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and I hope you'll leave me a comment so I can stop by your blog and see what wonderful creations you have published lately.  Have a wonderful week and keep crafting. "Hugs" Carol

Wonderful challenge this week, Carol! I adore your ornament. I have loved this image since I first saw it, I have it but haven't done anything with it. The way you framed it is perfect and love the softness of your colors. So happy for your win with Olga, have fun with your goodies.
