Inky Impressions / Christmas Decorations


Today I want to share with you a Christmas Ornament I made.
This is my first ornament, as I don't celebrate Christmas.
It was so fun to make!
Now I want to make Hanukkah decorations just like it.

I used a recycled cd to give the ornament stability.
It is also my first project using my new Zutter Bow-It-All.

This adorable image is from Inky Impressions.
I love penguins!

You can purchase this digital stamp HERE along
with many more fabulous images!
