Thank you for staying with this post - I know it is long but I am hoping you are loving everything you are seeing - and here is my last ornament!!  It is not typically a Christmas Ornament but I was inspired by a photo my DH took at Floriade, the Flower Festival here in Canberra - and here is the finished product!

Using the Layers of Color Flutterescent art stamp set and Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Oval Nestibilitie

The added bling is a mixture of recycled gems from broken jewellery (I love to recycle) and a couple of gorgeous crystals from my dear friend Denise!


Phew - finally at the end of the post - I hope you have found it inspiring and are ready to continue on the Blog Hop - there are some wonderful prizes along the way and hopefully YOU will win one of them!  Thank you for the lovely comments you leave me - you make my day!  God bless you!

  6. Linda, I have loved all the inspiration from my LOC sisters. Everyone's posts have been fabulous. I do have to say that I was most impressed by yours. Your second ornament is beyond gorgeous, and would have been my favorite, but when I saw you bottom one, my mouth dropped open, and I could hear "My giddy aunt..." words being said in my head. This one is probably one of my favorite projects that I have seen ever, and you know I have seen a lot. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me!!! WOW!!!!!! Hugs!!! Have a blessed day today.

  28. Wowee Linda... you've out done yourself with these beauties!! The use of the Touch of Elegance stamps in the gradient colors of the first ornament is striking!

    The Fleur de lis pendent dies are perfection with the Touch of elegance stamps! The circular center piece is like an ornament within an ornament...gorgeous!

    And (LOL) the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the lovely butterfly ornament... was "Marilyn is going to love this one!" Did you have her in mind as you created it??!! ;D
    Wuv ya!
