Good Sunday Morning to you!

Hi there!

I made a gift today. I have many to make and I try so hard to do different ones each year. Do you have as much trouble as I do coming up with new things each year?
This one is my try at an ornament - without having anything in the house except my paper to make one with!

I love this little Tilda - she is so sweet. Her name is: Tilda with Yule Cap. I had some papers here in the shape of large snowflakes. I cut out two white ones and glued them back to back, then I used a piece of cardboard that I cut small enough to hide and put it between the front white snowflake and the second blue one - just to keep them apart a little bit. I found these MS really large sparkles in Michaels a very long time ago in the Wedding section. They were self sticking and went easily onto the snowflakes. I put a lot of Diamond Dust on both the front and back of the snowflake. I coloured ( with Copics ) and cut out Tilda. Put some Stickles on tie of her cap and a touch around the striped part, added two buttons to her jumper and then attached her with 3D stickers to the blue snowflake. Made a hole through the
white double snowflake and put a silver stretchy thread from SU through the hole to hang her from the tree...........
Please let me know what you think??

Sorry I had to take these pictures in my kitchen as I don't have a knob to hang it from in my craft room! LOL......I don't have the good light in there like I do in my craft room either and it was rainy when I took the picture so you can't see it sparkle.
Here is one closer:

This is one little gift that is going to be touchy to wrap this year :o)
Thank you all for looking ~ have a wonderful Sunday.
Love, Candy

Candy, Your Christmas Ornamant is darling. I love how you layered the snowflakes and placed this cute little Tilda in the center. I've been looking at her and now after seeing her on your wonderful project, I'm going to have to get her.
