Happy Friday!

 
     Not sure how it became Friday again, but it's here, so lets deal with it!  LOL!  It also means Friends with Flair, and I have a Christmas ornament I made for this weeks linky party.  There are also some fun, new releases over at the Unity shop you must check out.  Visit Friends with Flair for some amazing inspiration!

     I will be honest, in that I have not had very much time to play with my November, Unity KOM.  I wanted to do something different, and remembered an ornament I saw on Pinterest a few days ago.  It was made in a similar fashion, but I decided to use one of my Unity stamps as a focal point in the center.

     It started with an open ring cut from chipboard with my classic circle SB dies, in the 2 largest sizes.  Using a low temp glue gun I added my vintage openwork lace.  Next came a row of ivory buttons, and a hanger with bow out of navy velvet.  I applied a navy cording to the inside edge.  Birds are always a popular subject, so I stamped the beautiful bird stamp from the kit with Midnight Muse ink form SU!.  I added some Old Paper Distress Ink, to give it a move ivory tone.  It was cut out with the largest SB circle die and glued to the back, to finish it off.  It looked so pretty added to my tree!

     Thanks for visiting, and I hope that all of your holiday prep is coming together.  Only a short 2 weeks to go!
