a tiny tussy and some Christmas ornaments

Been making a few things lately, not as much as I'd like, but still getting a little
time to play.  First is a tiny tussy using Rogue Redhead Designs stamps:
Happy Birthday, Rogue Redhead Designs!
Rogue Redheads is celebrating it's 3rd birthday this month--you can check out
the birthday challenge HERE, with the chance to win $15 of beautiful Rogue stamps.

Also made several Christmas ornaments in shabby blues for a swap:

Nest tag (it's actually glittery), stamp from Something Tattered
Something Tattered has luscious shabby chic/romantic/French inspired images. 
I couldn't decide whether or not to keep these little tags on the ornaments, but then
it occurred to me--the recipient can remove the tag off if they prefer it without, right?
Very glittery in real life--can you see it?
My bloggy friend Lynne was the inspiration for using the corrugated for the base
of the ornaments.  She makes beautiful things, and is, in my eyes, the Queen of Monochrome.

Some fun and inspiring weekend challenges:

For the Tussy:
Delicious Doodles--No Designer Paper (made my own with the music stamp
Aud Sentiments--Any Sentiment (Happy Birthday)
Inspired By Stamping--Use Ribbon Or Crocheted Trim (crocheted trim)
Crafting By Design--Anything Goes with a Birthday Twist

 For the Ornaments:
A Creative Romance (don't you love that name?)--Vintage Style
Totally PaperCrafts--Add a Bow
Fairy Tale Challenge--#81, photo inspiration (colors and glitter)
Eclectic Paperie--Recycling  (corrugated and old hymnal music)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!  :)
