Silver Bells Silver Bells,
It's Christmas time in the city
This week our cards are going off to the Mom of fellow Teapotter, Gabalot. Marlene just cannot find the Christmas Spirit this year, so Gabby, her family and the Teapotters are hoping she'll find it with all the wonderful cards being sent her way.
This is not really a card, but an ornament. I used the Spellbinders Splendid Circles and did embroidery on it, with a spacing of 40. That left a space big enough for the gem that I colored with a Copic. The floss is a beautiful metallic blue that Bridget Finlay sent to me (thank you Bridget)! The ribbon is a couple years old, but worked perfectly with the silver circle and blue thread.

Jennifer, this is so beautiful! What a treasure!!! I LOVE your gorgeous paper embroidery and your amazing ornament!!! We always decorated with blue and silver on our Christmas tree growing up, so this REALLY does make me sentimental! Into my favorites and I have no doubt Gabby's Mom will love it too!!!

BEAUTIFUL ornament, Jennifer! The embroidery is beautiful and the color is definitely a pretty shade of blue. Mom will treasure this and I know it will lift her spirits. Thank you for giving to my Mom this Christmas. :)
