Blogger's Challenge - Week 57 MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Merry Christmas (in July) to all of you!!!! This weeks' Blogger's Challenge was Christmas in July. if you haven't seen my Christmas Eve post...be sure to scroll down and check it out too!

Today's post uses the same box as yesterday but I made a set of three ornaments for our Pastor at church. There has been alot of talk among demonstrators on what they hope makes the new catalog from the past mini catalogs....on the top of my list from last years' Holiday Mini Catalog in Holy Tryptich and the Christmas sentiment- the name escapes me!!!! anyone remember what it was called???? It has a lot of beautiful Holiday sentiments......had a star stamp......oh well....it will come back to me...or I will have to go upstairs and see. Near and Far, Follow His Star....is that it?

Here is the ensemble:


closer look at the gift box:


Anyway....The ornaments are stamped on white chipboard coasters and I watercolored them with my aquapainter and ink refills. and all of them were "blinged" up with a 2 way glue pen and dazzling diamonds.

Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!
