BC244: Ornamental

Today is our last Blogger's Challenge before Christmas and so Lisa has challenged us with something "Ornamental".   She left it up to our interpretation and so mine is a little bit of a stretch, but think it works.

Every year during our Christmas gift exchange we tend to have a few gift certificates.  Our tradition is to put them on the tree as ornaments and so I created this card with the new jar4candy set from The {Stamps} of Life.  I basically stamped the jar image twice and then created a little accordian at the bottom of the card to attach the two and the gift card is adhered inside with a glue dot.  I think after looking at it, I may add on a ribbon to the top so it'll hang from the tree and not just sit in it.

The background of my jar was stamped with the little dandelions from the thanks2you set and then I've added some red stickles on the inside.  My top was paper pieced from a scrap of The Girl's Paperie Tinsels & Twigs paper from last year.

Along with this I also created one for Valentine's Day which is all about glitter.

And my last share is a recipe for No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies which are yummy!
