HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner! 


Good morning! Welcome to day three of My Creative Time's, 12 Days of Christmas!! Even tho I'm not scheduled for all 12 days I really was planning on trying to do something each day :(  The crud is going around at our house right now and I'm doing my best to not catch it!! Oh yeah baby the Lysol is being used heavily right now!! Between that and a thousand other things I haven't got as much done as I wanted!

Today I want to share with you a little tree ornament I made using the Artiste Cartridge. I'm kicking myself really hard right now because once again I forgot to write down the size :(  In the picture it looks like it's big but in real life it's not that big at all! You can find the mailbox on page 51 in the handbook. There is a layer under the card feature that I did not use since I was leaving the door open on mine. I used the Embossed Envelope die and heat embossed the sentiment Dear Santa with white Zing embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Warm Holiday Fun stamp set. The Holly is from the stamp set, From Our Family To Yours and for the berries I used the red glitter gems from the Workshop On the Go, Pear and Partridge.


I used Liquid Applique for my snow (eekkkk I'm almost out!!!) and used my heat gun to dry it! I punched a hole up at the top, in the center and added hemp twine to make it an ornament!


Here is a view from the other side. I tied a little bow from the hemp twine and attached it to the flag. I also used a brad to attach the flag.

I wished I could have gotten better pictures! It's really cute in person hee hee! Thanks for looking and have a AWESOME day!! Hugs, Leanne
