Christmas Hanger

Hello, Hello friends!  How has your week been going?!  Well I hope it's going better than mine is.  

***DISCLAIMER: I'm about to do a little venting, so just skip to the next paragraph if you're not interested ;D*********
To say that my week has been stressful would be an understatement right now.  My dad had surgery this week but I couldn't go see him because my son came down with a sinus and ear infection.  So while he was in surgery, I was at the doctor with my little one.  Then there were other major work and family stressers that I'd rather not get into.  I did manage to get into my studio and cranked out two new projects.  You know what they say, crafting is cheaper than therapy, lol.   Yes, I know what you're thinking....whoa is me, lol.  I guess I just needed to get it off my chest a little, so thanks for listening ;D 

Okay, know for some crafting!  I completed an ornament that I'll be using as a make and take project for PWP on Sat.  I'll share a pic of that as soon as I can, but for now, here is the other project I finished last night:

This is a little hanger that I made using a chipboard album that I bought at the dollar section of Michaels awhile back.  I just punched a second whole so I could hang it.  

Here's a closer look at the beautiful PWP stamp I used.  You can find this stamp on these two sets: Jolly Old St. Nick & Saint Nick.  While I was working on my ornament, I ended up cutting a lot of circles in different sizes so I could figure out what would work best.  So I decided to try and use them up.  I ran the red circle through my Cuttlebug to emboss, then inked it up with some gold ink to add some more depth.  I was having trouble getting the white circle to adhere so I sewed it on.  Please excuse my wonky sewing, lol.  

Next I found the perfect die cut on my DIL's workspace, sorry don't know who it's by.  Originally I thought I was gonna make a card but the die cut just seemed to big.  That's when I started digging through my stash and found the chipboard album.  I covered it with mauve colored cardstock to keep with the Victorian feel of the stamp.  Then just outlined the edges with red stickles, added some ribbon and wa la, done :D

That's it my friends, thank you so much for stopping by!  
Have a beautiful day!!!!!
