My Sheri Crafts Challenge #74

I hope you had a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving and enjoyed every minute of time with your family.  If  you went shopping, I hope you were successful and safe!  I very much enjoyed my time with Tim's family on Thursday and will be spending time with my family as this post goes up. Well, now, on with the show!!

It's time to Decorate For Christmas at My Sheri Crafts!  What a fun challenge!  No cards this time, just Christmas ornaments or home decor.  I decided to make a Christmas version of the tag decor I posted earlier.

The tags are again cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More at 6" and they are cut from recycled cardboard....a Bisquick box this time!  :)  I used a deep cut blade and multi cut 2x.

 This tag is from Potpourri Basket cut a t 2" and "Merry Christmas" is from Calligraphy and 1 1/2".  The shiny paper is a silver foil paper from My Minds Eye.
The trees and the church are from Christmas seasonal cartridge and the star is from Joys of the season.  I used white glitter glue on the trees.  Really, it's white, not green like it looks in the picture! ;) 

 I used white glitter cardstock for the snow layers on the church and for the ground snow I used a 12" glitter border strip and tore it in half.  The background is a basic blue cardstock from my stash.  All other papers are from my scraps.  Then I used a light spritz of spray on glitter and it kind of looks like it really is snowing! 

I really had fun with this and I hope you have fun making your projects, too.  So now, get crackin' and show us your Christmas ornaments or decor 'cause the season is officially here!!!!
