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
