Dirty Dozen Challenge Ornament

Good morning to all of you!  It is actually very close to noon here, but since I am still in my jammies (wow!) I am going to call it morning still!!  LOL!!

Every month on the 20th there is a challenge given to the Dirty Dozen and the Dirty Dozen Alumni to complete.  This month's challenge was to create a hanging ornament.  The only stipulation was that it must have something on it to hang it with.!!

This was a perfect challenge for me and for this time of year, and one thing you will learn about me is that I love Ornaments!!   I am a freak about them, I buy more every year and can't get enough of them.  I love my tree just filled completely with them and I belabor each year about how to put them on the tree to make it look balanced and complete! 

Here is a picture of one of our Christmas trees all decorated!  I actually have to have two trees because I have so many ornaments.  Since I also collect Santa Clauses, I have one tree that is completely devoted to just Santa Clause ornaments!  (I told you I was a freak!)

So anyway, you get the idea!! I LOVE Ornaments!

Here is the ornament that I made for the DD Challenge this month.  It is called Silent Night...

The main image on this ornament is a Unity stamp called All Santa's Reindeer.  It was designed by Kristine Bents.  The sentiment is from Unity's collection called Bitty Christmas

Complete details on how I made this ornament can be found on the Unity blog on this coming Monday where I will be providing a Tutorial on this as Guest Designer for them this month.  So if you are an ornament freak like I am, then be sure to visit the Unity Blog on Monday and learn how to make one for yourself!

Have a great Saturday and may your bucket overflow with lots of Christmas Ornaments too!!

Oh, I love your tree filled with an assortment of ornaments AND it looks like you used 'colored' lights, which I also love! I'm sure you have alot of fun decorating your trees with such fun decorations! Your new ornament is very pretty and will have alot of special 'meaning' in years to come...knowing that is was hand made by will be a treasured gift for your family.
Good work!
