This is so very cute!! I have thoroughly enjoyed all your baby projects and this one is no exception!!

You will also be eligible to win the grand prize cartridge, a rare brand new Christmas (Noel) Cartridge! Paulette will be drawing the winner on July 31st!
I have some blog candy today! I am giving away a brand new Sweater Weather cartridge. Leave me a comment by July 26th and I will announce the winner on July 27th.
My ornaments are fun and simple. I used papers, glitter and a couple of stickers from my stash to make these cute rosettes for my tree. We put up a 7 foot tree, so I made these a little bigger in size. My cuts were 5.4 inches wide x 3.5 inches tall. I cut six of each image that I chose. I used a tree and a loop for my ornaments. I also cut a snowflake from CTMH Artiste at 3.75 x 3.75 inches. There was a big event today, so I didn't get the chance to add my strings and bows to the first two ornaments. :-)
For this ornament, I used K & Company paper, and a cut Jolee's glitter wreath sticker.


For the next one, I used K & Company Paper and a holly berry die cut that came with the paper set. I added some stickles to shine it up.


And who could this last one be for? This is my favorite! I dressed up more K & Company paper with distress ink, stickles and a bow. The cute baby is from Doolecharms. As usual, I colored her with copics and I popped her up on the snowflake with pop dots.




This is who that last ornament is for!!!!! My Great Niece!  Her due date was August 13th, but she couldn't wait to see all the projects I have been making for her and arrived earlier today! My little angel is 6 lbs even and 18 and a half inches long! Thank God, she and her Mommy are both doing well!


Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Your next stop is the very talented Theresa. I know she has something wonderful to share with you!

It has been a wonderful to share in these past three weeks with you! While I am not participating in next week's hop, I am looking for to hopping along with all of you as a visitor!

Merry Christmas in July!
Happy Crafting!
