It's Prettie Wednesday!

Another Prettie Girls Challenge already! This challenge was issued by Jillian. . .to make an ornament! I haven't made an ornament in a very long time and I really had to think about what to make. I wanted to make it easy to mail, and the clear glass bulbs that I usually make ornaments out of are NOT easy to mail. At least not if you want it to arrive in one piece! So, as I was thinking about what to make an ornament out of, Arwen came into the room with something she "swiped" from my craft room. It was an empty Prima Flower paint can from some Prima flowers I bought at Target a while ago. Along with the paint can, came this magnetic-back tin that held little chipboard flowers, and it was stuck to the top of the paint can. PERFECT! So, it's not an ornament you hang on the tree, but one you can put on your fridge! Hopefully Alli will like it! Be sure and check out what the other Prettie Girls(Alli, Christie, Jillian, Joanne, Julie C., Julie M., and Kristine) have come up with! I'm sure they are fabulous! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Merry and Bright; Paper- blue (DCWV), pearlized white (Paper Accents); Ink- Palette in Noir; Accessories- white polka dot organdy ribbon, Icicle Stickles, Copic Spica glitter pens, prima tin from Target.

That is so pretty. What a great idea! I wanted to make some ornaments this Christmas and you have inspired me to find potential ornaments in my stampin' room!

Wow...that is really pretty! Makes me want to buy some prima flowers just for the tins. Oh heck...we all know we can always use primas anyways. LOL
I know what you mean about our weather...being a Pittsburgh girl myself! My poor hubby was on the roof in the wind today. Rough way to make a living in this weather!
