Three Clover's Thursday Challenge and More!

Welcome to another Three Clovers Thursday challenge on Wednesday Night. I am so lucky to be on the Design Team for Kerry and her challenges, I get to see them before you do. I hope you will join us this week we are making ornaments. I am just loving the way mine turned out. I hate some copper sheets laying around for (dare I admit it) about 5 years or more, lol, so I thought I should use them for something. Isn't this just beautiful. This is my absolute favorite SU Christmas set -- simple, elegant and to the point--that is what Christmas is all about!


Don't forget to head over to Kerry's blog and see what everyone else has done with this challenge.

Stamps: Christ is Born
Paper: Brushed Silver and Whisper White
Ink: VersaMark
Other: embossing powder, glitter, embossing plate, copper sheets, circle scissors plus, ribbon


This next share was actually a last minute little gift idea for the people who came to our Advent Pot Luck dinner at church tonight. I made up 40 of these today and they were a big hit. I have to thank Sandi MacIver and Janet Wakeland for my inspiration. Janet actually has a pdf of the poem on her site!




Stamps: Holy Triptych
Paper: Always Artichoke, Brushed Gold, Whisper White
Ink: Always Artichoke craft
Other: computer for poem, clear embossing powder, hand held punch, ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today--Hope you are having a fabulous week!

That ornament is simply to die for. Now I have to find my copper sheets too. I got some back in the days when I worked at Michaels which would be about 8 years ago so I have you beat on not using it. Thanks again for the wonderful inspiration.

Mary Jo, just catching on some great inspiration and saw your ornament. I have to ask, what is the copper sheet attached to? Very lovely ornament and I plan on making some up for my Church's Christmas Bizarre for next year. Thanks for all the great inspiration your website offers!
