Ornament Challenge - Fans of Karen Lockhart

ETA: My ornament was chosen as the winner of the challenge - sadly, it was the only entry. But I still won, right?!! LOL Susana Magenheimer, the owner of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design has very generously offered a prize for the winner (ME!), which is the Karen Lockhart Itty Bitty Wreath stamp and some sparklies. How cool is that?!! Hopefully I'll have more competition for future challenges. Hehehe

Suzanne Dean has posted another challenge over at the Fans of Karen Lockhart on PapercraftPlanet.com. The challenge is to create an ornament using Karen Lockhart stamps. This one was interesting for me, but I wanted to give it a try. I had limited time, so I had to use the supplies I had on hand. No time to run to Michael's and buy an ornament to alter. I just happened to click on a link on the MSN homepage last week, which led to the MarthaStewart.com website. She had information listed to make your own ornaments. I chose this one, thinking that it would be perfect to showcase my Karen Lockhart Itty Bitty Christmas stamps. I made six scalloped squares using my Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug (LOVE my Nesties & Cuttlebug!) out of two different coordinating SU Christmas DP's. I then punched out four squares using my SU 1-1/4" square punch. Glued everything together according to the instructions, punched a hole at the top and bottom, threaded some SU cord, colored four Karen Lockhart Itty Bitty images on inchies squares, glued those on the four squares, and Voila! An Ornament!! Thanks for the fun challenge, Suzanne!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your ornament is beautiful! I love how you used the IB Lockhart stamps on the scallop squares to create this!
