This little frame sure took on a completely different look; it started out a ghastly orange color. After a coat of Gesso and a couple of coats of paint, this is how it turned out. What better piece than this to hold The Man of the Season.
You'll be seeing more of these in a future post. This Hershey milk chocolate candy bar is hidden just a little bit under some pretty paper, ribbon and snow scene.
Here's another shadowbox/hanging card/ornament. I've used this same picture and sentiment on a card and loved it so much that I just had to use it again.
I couldn't resist the sentiment. The sour expressions on these children is priceless and they just need to be reminded to "get their MERRY on" ...
Here are close-ups taken from different angles. I don't want you to miss anything.
The gifts were individually wrapped and then put inside a larger box, with this card on the top. I wish you could see how "brightly shining" those stars are in person!
This ornament was actually the first gift I created for this exchange and I was disappointed that it wouldn't fit inside the box. I thought I was going to have to just hang it on our tree but then decided I could just utilize it as part of the gift wrapping.
Here's hoping these little baubles merry-up somebody's Christmas not only this year, but in years to come.
Ohhhhhhhh - and the very best part? The exchanging of gifts was where everybody had a choice of an unopened gift or they could steal. The Runner "stole" a $15 Hobby Lobby gift card. For ME!
