This is ornament number TWO from the talented and very kind Mary Zimany!
This is an altered tin done with alcohol inks and stamping and the inside is done with wonderful fabric art, sweet stitches and glitter. There is a handmade off white rose on a velvet ribbon for the finishing touches!!!!! Spectacular! Thank you Mary! This is ornament Number One from Barb Burkard!
She made a beautiful image of the snowman on transparency and rolled it and inserted it into this glass ball. She made a bow, with a darling soft bell and filled the ball with darling gems and stones that sparkle and shine! Just beautiful! She also made each of us a lovely fabric cuff!!!!! So exciting and thank you Barb!!!

A sweet friend Elizabeth, http://elizabethcreates.blogspot.com/

invited me to join a 12 Days of Christmas Swap for little ornaments. If you have never participated in one, you create 12 pieces to swap out and mail them to the hostess! You are assigned a number and wrap up your ornament and label it. I was number FIVE! The hostess swaps the packages back and you open ONE a day for 12 Days! Well, we had 13 participants, the more the merrier and we could not start to open on the 1st of December because some packages went out of the country. Long story short, the FUN HAS COMMENCED!!!!!!!!!!!! We have opened day one and day two! BOTH are fantastic ornaments from talented artful girls! :) If you want to see more detailed pictures of their ornaments, visit their websites, links above. They have some great shots of them!
