Merry Christmas!!

Every Christmas, I create a special ornament for my precious little granddaughter, Stella. This year, a cute little penguin fella donned his Christmas finery to wish Stella a special greeting. 

I visited Jolly Bingo Bits in MDS to get this little penguin, enlarged him, gave him a wreath to carry, added a festive necktie and glittery icy blue eyes, printed him, and cut him out. I layered him against a Whisper White snowflake cut with the Festive Flurry Framelits (again!!). A spritely red and white polka dot background lies underneath the snowflake. I added some modified rick-rack from Tasteful Trim to the bottom, and finished that off with some dimensional red dots.

I forgot to measure the ornament before I wrapped it up, but I'd say it measures around 4" x 6" or so. A fairly large ornament. But then, all the ornaments I've made for Stella so far have been larger than the average ornament.

Hopefully Stella will love it.
