12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop Day 3

For Cricut Craft Room's 25 Days Of Christmas, click here.

Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days Of Christmas!

This is a 12 day hop filled with anything and everything Christmas.

If you are coming from Theresa, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Lisa as she is our lovely hostess.

There are some fabulous prizes and great sponsors for this hop so please make sure you follow the requirements for each day.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost...

Today I am showing a quick and very simple ornament.  I had done a few of these last year for family and friends just never took any pictures.  I have made a bunch of these so far this year but have decided to just share one.  I made an ornament for my kitty that passed away in October.  My Reese was 14 and lived a long and happy life surrounded by people that loved him very much.  He is greatly missed so I decided that one of the ornaments would be for him.

What I love about these ornaments is that you can customize them any way you like...any picture, any color, any cut, etc..  These also make fabulous gifts.  I gave one to my mommom last year with a picture of my brother and I.  Sorry for the brightness, the ornament is already on the Christmas tree.

Paper is from my stash
Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge
Stampin Up Sweet Treat Cups
Crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam.  The Mistletoe from the Winter bundle.

I'm going to give a big prize away to one lucky person.  The prize will be a secret for a couple of posts.  To win my grand prize, you must comment on all 12 days of the hop.

Reminder that some days may have individual blog candy besides my grand prize.

Please remember to stop back tomorrow for a new Christmas project.

Your next stop is Anita.
