Goodie Box & Christmas Ornament

Wow, I really lucked out this time.  Found a see through goodie box I'd made last year and never did use, in fact, I found 8 of them, all with different DP.  So I stuck some candy in it, made the ornament, and tied it on with a bow.  Can't get much easier than this now can it.  What have you put away and forgot about that will only take you a short while to complete and share??  We'd love to see it!

CCAYR September Challenge: This is a stash challenge and the only "rule" is that anything you use on your cards needs to be at least a year old - stamps, papers, embellishments: everything!

Ornament Deets:
  • Image from Nina at Paper Cupcakes "A Merry Christmas Snowman" colored with Copics: R24, 27, 29; G24, 21, 20; B99, 97; YR 18, 15, 12; C00, 0, R20; R59, 46; paper pieced with faux stitching.
  • Stardust Stickles and Diamond Glaze
  • Flower Soft Ultra Fine Strawberry for mittens
  • DP Reminisce Fresh Snow for backing, red brads, and sprayed with Glimmer Mist Pearl
We are ready for some cooler weather but so not ready for winter...  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope this month I've given you a little inspiration to get started on your Christmas cards and projects. It will sure make your life a little easier come December.  Plus, I'd love to see you play in the challenge cause it gives me another reason to stop by and visit.

Have a wonderful week ahead!
"Love & Hugs" Carol
