Who Is Ready For Christmas?

Well, not me but I am playing around with some of the winter/Christmas digital images and digital papers at Diane's Daydream Designs trying to get a jump on it.
I bought this clear ornament last time I was in a craft store, not knowing what I was going to do with it.  I have been playing around with canning jars, filling them with various items and wicks for lanterns so I gave it a go with the ornament,  stuffing some greenery in first and then adding the deer and blue flower (in the background).  The deer already looks like it has glitter on it when it is printed but I added Stickles all over to really make it sparkle.  If I make another one, I think I will go easy on myself and glue the deer to the outside instead of trying to fit him through the top.  Getting him flat again and just the right placement was a little difficult.
BTW, the paper in the background is also Diane's Daydream Design digital paper.   Love it.
Here is a pic of the set:
And one of the paper pack:

I used to paint tree ornaments.  After a serious cut to my index and third finger, I lost the feeling in my index finger.  That is when I stopped painting.  I keep telling myself to get back to it but I have so much fun with paper, I hate to give that time up for painting! Who knows, maybe someday.  But this is the new ornament that will go on my tree this year.
