Create an ornament

Fantastic Tags were entered for Brenda's T!m's Tag challenge, thank you to everyone who entered, I hope it warmed you up for this year's Tim's 12 tags of Christmas!

As we are now in December and Christmas is definitely the theme of the moment I decided that as a lot of people will have finished their cards by now it would be appropriate to make an ornament while all the Christmas crafting materials are still on our craft tables.  It can be an altered item made into an ornament, table decoration or even an ornament shaped card, and it doesn't have to be Christmas themed.

It can be a hectic time of year with all the prep so, whatever you decide to make, take time to enjoy yourself!

The design team have been busy creating again and yet again offer awesome inspiration to help kick start your ideas.

Have fun!!!
