Count Down to Christmas with 25 Ornaments

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Countdown to the Holidays.  What a great theme!  I decided to play along with the 25 paper ornament gift tags (which will be bundled and given to friends as a part of early Christmas gifts) that I've made over the last few weeks.  Here is a picture of all the ornaments together.  I didn't put numbers on them, but you can count them for yourself ... there are 25 :) 

Forgive the photo intensive post and the terrible photography.    I am including individual shots of the 25 different ornaments.  Each of the ornaments started out as die cuts from Tim Holtz's Sizzix Movers and Shapers Carved Ornaments #1 or Carved Ornaments #2.   Most of them have a base that was cut out of pattern paper.  I used Distress Ink, Distress Paint, Distress Markers, Stickles, Multi-Medium, paint pens, alcohol ink markers, embossing folders, embellishment stickers, other die cuts, etc to decorate them.  If you have any questions about how one was made, drop me a line or leave me a question in the Comments section. 

 Well, it looks my Christmas season has started off Merry and Bright.   I hope you are enjoying the creativity of the season as well :)  -- Mary Elizabeth
