Ornament swap

Here are the ornaments I made for a little swap we are planning at our island get-away next week. I wish I could have got a better photo without all the glare and making the images look so washed out. Can hardly believe Barb will be here in 8 days!!!

I used a mini magnolia stamp I bought last year to use on my grand daughters gift box ornaments. I had these pictured so different in my mind so am a bit disappointed int the finished product. I hope the others will them in spite of how I feel. I used a quickutz die for the trees, handmade the little bench and colored the image using copics and colored pencils. I hadd liquid pearls for the snow in the trees and on the ground. Plut liquid applique on her coat for the furry effect. Then just had to add a little stickles here and there because have to have I through in some fake snow as the finishing touch before sealing them in the ball. On the back I stamped a verse about Christmas. You can see I embellished with paper roses, punched leaves, ribbon and of course more stickles. I can hardly wait to see what the other ladies have done for their ornaments!
