3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #44-Decorate your tree with an Ornament!



The challenge this week at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge is to make an ornament! Wellll...I have been so busy, too busy to play with my new toy (Cricut).  So I decided this would be my first project...make an ornament that also holds a gift card. Now, I need a lot of these babies, so I better get busy...running out of time!   I made one a little more "manly" and then made one with my first Magnolia. I won this fun stamp from the new Fancy & Fussy Friday Challenge Blog. Boy did I win good "stuff" too. I hope to get another project in with their wonderful candy before the holidays.  I hope you can find the time to visit both challenges to see what is going on!

I am way behind on visiting all my blogging buddies, but never fear...I will catch up some day soon I hope! My Google Reader is so full...oh goodness gracious I bet there is good "stuff" to behold!

I have been busy with my annual woodcraft...cutting wood at the last minute...call me Last Minute Lizzie! I swear I am not doing this at the last minute next year...You hold me to it okay??!!!!!!!!!!  I finished the snowman quilt I was making for my grandson Cole and took it too him last weekend. What a wonderful couple of days. I always hate to leave them behind when I pull out of their drive way. (sniff sniff I miss them)
I hope to get a picture of him all wrapped in his new blankey posted soon. He loved his pillow the best! He is just getting to that age where he gets to have a pillow, so he was excited to have his very own.
 

I baked up most of my cookies this week too, but tomorrow is back to work and the vacation days are done...YIKES! I baked a few new ones this year...I hope I can find time to share...I know you are waiting Mary LOL!





The inside is a gift card holder. Notice my fave gift card....

I cut out the ornament at 5 inches. I actually cut 2 out of just plain white and then a full one out of DP and then a partial one out of DP also. I glued the top parts together and scored at the top of the ball so it would open easily. Pretty easy and quick.

Well, back to work finishing projects for Christmas...watch for those next week too. Thanks for stopping by. I know we are all crazy busy, but I have to tell you...taking the time for a little creative break is just what I needed...and I bet you do too! Recharge!!

what a cute Idea! I wish my hubby could make one of those and that it would show up on my tree with a gift card to our local scrapping store! Great Idea!

Sharon Caudle said...

Well you already know how much I love this! LOL! Girl, you are sooo smart!! *smiles* I really like the snowflake one, but of course Tilda has to be my fav! You've colored her beautifully! And I really like the way you cut the gift card holder! Fabulous! hugs!

Gorgeous!!! I LOVE them both!! Edwin on a n ornament would have been perfect for Cole too. hint hint! LOL!
But seriously, these are both WONDERFUL!!!
I was sad to see that you WON the Tilda stamp....I thought that maybe Sharon and I brought you over to the dark side of Magnolia addiction!! muuuuhahahahahahahaaaaaaa!

Well, it starts with just one or two...then you will love Tilda and Edwin as much as we do!

such a clever idea, I love it and would love to try it if I find some time (at this time of year time is a very specious commodity). Congrats on winning the magnolia stamp, but be careful, they are addictive :)

These ornaments are so nice, and a gift card holder too. Nice bright colors. Magnolia is darling. Glad you had a great visit with your baby and can't wait to see the pics.

Things are getting so hectic, I don't want to miss wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Sue, these are both great gift card holders! I love your Cricut snowflakes, but the Tilda is my favorite! I've been meaning to email and ask if you received the blog candy, but now I know you did!
Hugs,
April
