Thanksgiving '12

This is the card I made for Thanksgiving. We are going to scale down this year, (sure) but I always look forward to cooking a big meal. Actually, I do most of the cooking the day before so I can have some fun that day. I have no idea how to 'scale down', but we'll see.

Glittery Ornaments

Twice a year our Women's Missions and Outreach Ministry visit Teen Challenge. We always bring them little gifts and snacks. This year I was thrilled to be able to decorate clear ornaments into these stunning beauties! I used Stampin' Up! reinkers and fine glitter. They take a while to make, but are SOOO worth the time. Take the top off and add 10 drops of ink in the ornament. Roll the ink around so that it covers the entire interior of the ornament - Do Not Shake! Shaking will cause bubbles and will make it harder to evenly cover the sides. Turn the ornament upside down and let the extra ink pour out. Using a funnel, pour in the glitter. This you can shake or roll to cover the ink. pour out the left over glitter to use again. Put the top back on the ornament. They really look a lot better when you look at it on a tree. TFL!
