Trimming the Tree

Despite the post title, I am not trimming the Christmas tree this early.  But I thought I'd share with the Crafty Secrets November Linky Party a couple of photos of one the ornaments I made last year using one of my most favorite Christmas stamps from Crafty Secrets.

 I wanted an antique engraving look, so I stamped this sweet little bird in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Rustic Cream cardstock from PTI. Then I framed it using an ornament from Hobby Lobby.

I was excited to see Hobby Lobby had these ornaments again this year, and when they were first on sale a few months ago, I bought some so I can make more of these vintage ornaments for trimming the tree and a few packages.

This is one quick-to-make elegant project.
