HSS Anything BUT a Card Challenge #95

Good Morning Stampers!!! It’s Challenge time AGAIN, and at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week we are challenging you all to create anything BUT a card!  Your inspiration is ORNAMENTS. I love handmade ornaments and my original idea for this project will have to come to life next year, when I prepare in advance better and don’t wait until 2 days before December.  So my ornament is COVERED in glitter- the shinier the better!

Check out the HSS blog for even more inspiration from the other AMAZING design team members.
This cute little reindeer had to go on the front of my little house, I had planned on doing a SLEW of these with all different seasonal characters on them, but I honestly ran out of time- or should I say that I didn’t prepare far enough in advance, ;-|
But this little fellow turned out super cute- no?!  I gave him a little surprise too, keep going…
Check it out, even in TX there is snow.  Glitter is probably the only snow us Texans will hardly ever see.  This is TX snow. :-)
Check it- I made a little door for the ornament so you could put treats or a note or better yet- CASH inside the ornament.  Note: put the brad on the ornament BEFORE you put it together, otherwise it takes you FOREVER, especially when you are trying to keep your glitter looking nice. :-)
Can you imagine an entire tree covered in these adorable little things?  I think having an elf and a Santa and a snowman, and a dove, and OH MAN I could go on and on… I will give myself much more time next year to make that happen.  Thanks for coming by today and checking in- I might try and put together
