It's time for December TicTacToe Challenge #238 designed by Felicita.  I have been stitching a few ornament cards for special people on my card list and this one worked perfectly for this week's challenge.

I find stitching these ornaments so much fun - and so easy to do while watching a favorite TV show.  I finished off the back also.

I used gold metallic thread as a hanger for the ornament and it is just scotch taped to the back of the embossed panel.  That way the card panel is removable and the ornament can be put on the tree.  Just a simple little sentiment finished off the card.

I went from left to right diagonally - free, ornament and red or green.  I think have just about all the board elements in my card except patterned paper.

Hope to see you in our challenge this week - crafty hugs,

 Another Christmas card for the stash!

supplies: sentiment: flower; arches; mica spray
I first took a sheet of pink cs and sprayed with TH mica spray.  Then spattered with gold metallic watercolor.  Did the same for the green.  Die cut petals and leaves and assembled the flower.  Used arch dies to make the card base.  Put it all together with white berries and a little sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.

The other night Gina K. did a video on making a little village scene Christmas card.  I didn't have any of the dies she used, but was still able to make a similar card with other dies.

I shopped my stash and used a little village die, some trees, snow banks, a sentiment and a frame - all from different companies.  After the village was glued to the vellum, I colored in all the windows (on the back of the vellum) with yellow copic marker.  It took a little fiddling around but I think it came together pretty well.  

Thanks for dropping by.
