Happy Birthday Jesus...

This little cutie is an ornament that I made for the Inky Impressions Challenge this week, which was, of course, to create an ornament!
Thanks to Maria, I will also enter it in the Saturday Spotlight challenge, which is also an ornament challenge!

The image, is a sweetie from Inky Impressions. (Thanks to a great friend!!!)
I just hand wrote (I'm SURE that's obvious!) the sentiment out to the side.
She is colored with TomBow Markers.
I took an old ribbon spool, took one cover off, and decorated the rest.
The image is covered with Crystal Laquer for a glossy look.
I couldn't get the camera and the gloss to cooperate, so it looks like it's got lumps and bumps, but that is really just camera fussies and stubborness!
Her legs were attached to the back, (I remembered how cute those lil' 'shelf sitters' used to be!

I certainly hope that your week is off to a good start! It's going to be busy here. DS is flying in from the west coast (YIPPEE!!!), it is monthly report time (UGH!!), I have tons of grocery shopping to do, a gift bag swap to start and finish, business trucks and trailers to be inspected and licensed this week.... if you don't see me, you'll know where I am!!!

Have a great day, and if you missed the blog candy winners, please go to my last post!

Food for thought:
