Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve to you!  
I am enjoying a cup of coffee before I have to get the kids ready, and begin my cooking.  My family is small, so there is only ten of us,  but you could swear that I was cooking for forty people! ; )
Today I am sharing my last Christmas project of the year. It uses papers from the Crafty Secret's Vintage Christmas Digital CD. I Modged Podged it on a cardboard ornament that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I inked the edges and added Helmar's Crackling Medium to the entire ornament.  Once I completed both steps to get this cool crackling effect, I sponged it with brown ink.  It makes the cracks more defined.  
I used a bit of spray adhesive and sprinkled gold glitter around the perimeter of the ornament. 

The flowers were cut using papers from the Christmas CD as well and my Silhouette. I added pearls, gold glitter, and filled in the flowers with greenery from Prima.  As a final touch, I added a gingham bow.
I won't be back until after Christmas, so I wanted to take this moment to wish you a very happy and blessed holiday! 
I am thankful every single day that you choose to visit me, and that you have supported my journey with Cortney (and Kyle too).  
Thank you.
Merry Christmas to you and your families!
