2010 Ornament - DONE!


1. merry, jolly, convivial, gay, joyful, mirthful. Jovial, jocose,jocular, jocund agree in referring to someone who is in a goodhumor. Jovial suggests a hearty, joyous humor: a jovial person.Jocose refers to that which causes laughter; it suggests someonewho is playful and given to jesting: with jocose and comical airs.Jocular means humorous, facetious, mirthful, and waggish: jocularenough to keep up the spirits of all around him. Jocund, now aliterary word, suggests a cheerful, light-hearted, and sprightlygaiety: glad and jocund company.
The reason for this "light-hearted" mood is that my 2010 Christmas ornaments are officially DONE! But, let's not get ahead of ourselves here...
My first holiday card is also done, and I've used some paper from Basic Grey's "Jovial" collection. It's not Christmas-y in the "traditional" sense, but it makes me feel like winter...
I even decorated the inside:
And, lyrics from a Christmas carol is the icing on the cutout...
Without further ado, a close-up of this year's ornament:


Actually, it's big enough to use as a holiday decoration:
But, fits perfectly on the tree. I used a variety of different papers:
The basket shape is cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut cartridge:
And I used Christmas carol sheet shred and old fashioned tinsel to fill the basket:




I can't wait to give these to all my friends and family!
Happy Thursday!

How cute they all look on the tree! And your card is lovely. I always equate red plaid with Christmas. Beautiful! xxD
