InStyle Stamps Blog Hop ~ Ornaments

Happy Black Friday!!! TGIF!!! Hope y'all had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving :)
I'm still struggling with this icky cold, but it did not hold me back from enjoying my family and stuffing myself with plenty of turkey and, of course, Sara's delish cheesecake ;) Yummm!!!

Welcome to InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!!!
If you are following along with our hop, you should have arrived here from Linda of Linda's Pyssel Blog... if not, and would like to start from the beginning, please go to the InStyle Stamps Blog ;)

Here's some info regarding the hop...
First visit all the DT blogs, leaving your comments along the way :) Then go to the InStyle Stamps blog to vote for your favorite project... the DT member with the highest votes will win a prize, along with a Grand Prize to a random commenter! So, don't forget to leave a comment too!!!.

The contest begins today at Noon EST and the winners will be announced on Sunday 11/29th.

This month's theme is all bout Ornaments!!!

I had several ideas... and this was what I finally decided to create :)

First, I finally decorated my plain pail into an ornament holder... it's wonderful to hold those small and delicate ornaments that can easily be lost or crushed, the lid is perfect since it suctions in and won't come off easily. You can also stuff in some tissue paper to hold your items in place...

Next,  I created my own lil girly ornament! This will most likely hang alongside our Disney and Sesame Street themed ornaments today ;) LOL! After seeing Santa on tv at the end of the Macy's Day Parade, and knowing that Santa is in town keeping an eye on things - Our boys cannot wait for the Christmas tree to be in it's place!

... and, I decided that you can never have too many cards! hee, hee! and I have become quite a "matchy-matchy" type, so I just had to create a matching card for this set :)

Ornament Trio Details:
Paper(s): Bo Bunny "Tis The Season" Collection DP; Papertrey Ink White & Red CS; Bazzill Green CS; American Crafts White CS
Stamp(s): InStyle Stamps "Christmas Tree Chick" Digital Image
Ink(s): Copic Markers; Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Markers
Accessories: Spellbinders Small Circle & Labels Eight Nestabilities; The Robin's Nest Dew Drops; Prima Flowers; JoAnn's White Lace; misc Gem & Double-sided Ribbon; Michael's Pail & Christmas Ornaments.
