I was able to use a fabulous file from Nicecrane, I printed each file twice.

 I cut them out and glued them together.

I added some glitter round the edges of each one. I used some string from my stash to hang them. I covered an old shoe box with red paper and filled it with tissue paper to nestle the ornaments inside the box. I am really pleased with how they have turned out. I borrowed my neighbours tree to photograph the ornaments hanging.
I am entering the ornaments in the following challenges:

Pile It On Challenge 21 Use some Metal

Hello again, I am late posting this one as I have been to see my Granny, thankfully she is getting better, she is still old, frail and a bit poorly but not ill like she has been so that is excellent news. Anyway onto the crafting, this time at Pile It On we are asking you to use some metal on your project. We are sponsored by Add a Little Dazzle who very kindly sent some metal sheets for us to play with. 

Our sponsor is Add a Little Dazzle, a fun store and blog dedicated to beautiful metal sheets. Be sure to check out their weekly challenge too! One lucky participant will win a $25 GC to the Add a Little Dazzle Store

Are you ready to take your crafting to the next level? Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets will help you turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

I have gone with the pink and black from the selection I received. I used my Tonic dies to cut out the shapes. The metal cut easily in the eBosser, I just ran it through twice to help the pieces come out of the more intricate sections. I used a scrap of black paper and a punch to create some paper lace to hide the join on the background die. I swiped the card with some distress ink as I didn't like it just white, some gems and that was it. I really wanted the metal to be the star f the show so I kept the card fairly simple.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting From The Heart Challenge 19

Hello again, no I haven't disappeared but it's been a bit hectic here and although I have been crafting I can't share what I have been busy with just yet. This time at Crafting From The Heart we are Anythign Goes, we are sponsored by:

I was able to use the fabulous Stitched Snowman from Dilly Beans this time. I coloured him with my pens, I know there isn't much colouring but there is some!!! I cut him out by hand. I used some papers from a magazine pad, an old card blank that should be a gatefold card but I didn't want a gatefold so I just chopped the edge off. I punched the edge and added some ribbon to hide the join. I used an old embossing folder, this has words in the middle but my snowman was big enough to hide them, I sanded the mirri finish back and swiped the card with some Pine Needles distress ink. I added some ink round the edge of the flap just to tie it in.

This time we would like to see something Fuzzy. I choose to use Coosty Creations Tiger Digital Stamp Pack.
I used one of the papers in the pack and my digital software to punch out the words. I used the other paper for my background, I added some paw prints in black. I used some distress inks and pens to colour the main tiger image. I cut him out by hand and popped him on some foam pads for some dimension. I choose the Tiger as I was born in the year of the Tiger and it is my favourite animal.
