When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Timeless Tuesday #200 - Deck the Tree

First and foremost, congrats to Flourishes for successfully reaching Timeless Tuesday challenge 200.  Thanks to the DT and the wonderful participants for keeping us fellow crafters inspired.

I am really excited to post my entry for this challenge.  I've been working the whole night last night to get this project done.  Thanks to Maki Jones for such a fun challenge - Timeless Tuesday #200 - Deck the Tree

For this challenge, I decided to make a hanging lantern ornament using images (lantern, poinsettia, labels, Christmas candle with holly and berries) from Silhouette store.
See the faux berries?
I made them using acrylic beads.  Interesting right!?  Loved how it came out..
 Probably wondering what is this?  
Well, I'm just showing you that I have to tape the ornament on the wall so I could take pics.  We are still having a hard time looking for concrete screws and wall anchor and we've been here now for almost three months....  
That's the fun of being away from home!
MATERIALS:
PAPER: Stampin' Up! {real red, certainly celery, rich razzleberry and garden green}, Georgia Pacific {110 white} and PTI {true black}
STAMP: Flourishes {Christmas Candles}
INKPADS: TH Distressed Inkpads {peeled paint, rusty hinge and wild honey}, CTMH {new England ivy, garnet} and Stampin' Up! {real red}
TOOLS: Silhouette (Cameo and images}, Cuttlebug {diecut machine}, Impression Obsession {pine branch}, McGill {flower tool}, Scotch {ATG}, Darice {foam tape} and DAP{permanent/repositionable liquid glue}
EMBELLISHMENT: Wilton {doilies}, Oriental Trading {brads with bling} and acrylic beads

From our family to yours, let me wish y'all a Merry Christmas!
