Join Us For A Virtual Christmas Dinner at Shelly's Images

Have you been joining in with us, in our 12 Days of Christmas event, at Shelly'sImages?! If not, you are missing out! We're having lots of fun, tutorials, and a cookie recipe exchange!

Today, our special event is a Virtual Christmas Dinner! Come on over and join us at Shelly's Images, and tell us what you're bringing to our Virtual Christmas Dinner, and we'd love if you could include the recipe, too! (Santa might just compile them into a downloadable cookbook for us, if we're good!)

Shelly's Images is providing the turkey, in the form of this cute ornament I made: (See below for ornament details and challenge info)

I brought a yummy no bake cheesecake. You can view the pic and get the recipe, at Shelly's Images. Come and join us!

Now, here are the details on my project, which can be used as an ornament or tag, featuring the pilgrim girl image, by Shelly's Images. I colored her with Promarkers, to go more with a Christmas color scheme, this time. The "Frame" is actually the paper "bowl" that the breakfast souffles come in, at Panera. I just couldn't throw it away. I knew I could recycle it and use it for something! That's how this ornament was created. I used my circle punches to punch out the image and the matting, the framed the matting with tiny white pearls. I used my Crop O Dile Bit Bite to punch some decorative holes around the bottom of the "Frame." I took some cute candy cane ribbon from my stash and ran it through a ribbon slider, then threaded each end through the last punched hole on each side, and attached it to the back. I used metallic elastic cord as the ornament hanger. I think it turned out really cute. I'm using this as a decorative tag for a gift bag for someone at work. Then the recipient can hang it on thier tree
