"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Ornament #3
Country Christmas

I wanted an ornament with what I refer to as a "log cabin" look or an old fashioned country Christmas look.  I didn't use any stamps for this ornament, just decorative paper.  It saved die cutting time, but I ended up inking the edges of the paper (I have this thing about the white exposed edge on paper!) and I also inked the outer edges on the back of the ornaments for better blending when I assembled my ornament.  So far, this is one of my favorite color combos!  Thank you again to Pam, my SU Demo, who also has a new grandson to spoil!  Welcome to the world baby Ryan!
