Good morning to you! It is another mild day here in central Alberta. Not a ton of snow on the ground for Christmas but the ground is covered. Yesterday was the last day of school for my kids and so today we are taking the time to get the house cleaned so we can finish up some Christmas presents which means we finally get to do some Christmas baking. Can't believe we only have 3 days left until such a glorious day! It is going to be so much fun...time spent with my family...there is no greater blessing just wish they could all be with us.
Today is Thursday and you got it we have another fantastic challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks
. Our beautiful and very funny hostess this week is Lori. She has given us a true challenge this week of Christmas. I must say this one always stumps me a little. There were quite a few idea's that came to mind for this one and well it took me a while to settle on what I wanted to do. Here is what our chickie gave us.
CHALLENGE #69 - ANYTHING BUT A RECTANGLE OR A SQUARE
These ornaments are fun to make. Overall this season I have made 20 ornaments. Different colors and designs. The ornaments I bought at Walmart, the paper is Stampin Up, Stamps - Outliners, Gold embossing powder, gold elastic ribbon, scissor and glue.
