WMC #78

OK...I know I wrote a couple of days ago no challenges right now. But... hang on here a sec, I also wrote that I had a few things made ahead to post. And... it just so has it that Wee Memories is having a free for all challenge this week! No sketch, no color requirements, no specific technique...anything goes. I had already made a little something to share with you that was perfect for this so I had to link it up friends!!! Hope you like it!



This sweet little ornament starts out with a 5" papermache star that I got from my SIL aka: stamping buddy. I lightly covered the edges with a chestnut brown chalk ink then glued on the pretty blue holly paper from Cosmo Cricket's: 6x6 Jolly by Golly collection. The stamped label die cut is Papertrey Ink and the little strip of snowmen is also from the Cosmo Cricket paper collection.  My Merry Christmas sentiment is a Magenta stamp. I added the lace trim, pearls, wooden painted star, ribbons, tulle and pearl button all from my stash of goodies! This was a snap to make and I just love the way it turned out.

I want to THANK all of you who left comments and sent emails for my sweetheart hubs speedy recovery. Your prayers are also GREATLY appreciated. I'm happy to report that today has been his best day ~yay! A better appetite and even spending a bit of time at his computer. He has the entire month off to rest, get better, be spoiled (well...he already was a little!) and enjoy the holidays!!! Take care my friends, I'll be around to visit ~Lisa
