In Style Stamps - Holiday Ornament Blog Hop!

*Stampin' for the Weekend DT Card - Please scroll down!*
Welcome to the InStyle Stamps November blog hop!

If you have arrived here from Mary's blog your on the right track!! If you've come from your Dashboard, or just fancied visiting me and wanna join in the hop - hurry on over to the In Style Stamp Blog :D

You've seen some gorgeous projects so far so I'd like to share mine with you. 

I've cheated a little with this one. I was meant to have three to show you, but two of the chocolate icicles have been eaten *blush*

I'm getting really excited as Christmas draws near! Only 28 days to go! Can you believe it!

Here I've used Kimi - isnt she just beautiful. Her sparkly wings are glamour dusted and her pale pink dress is a combination of three copic pens in the lightest pastel shades I had in my collection! 

The silver paper I found in my old craft box and used it to decorate an already packaged chocolate covered icicle (Not sure if thats what they are, but they are pointy and silver and reminded me of Icicles).

I wrapped some white funky fibre round the top to keep the paper in place, and then wrapped the whole icicle in a pale pink ribbon to make it more decorative.

I cut our the oval by hand and layered Kimi on top, leaving just her wings and halo on the bottom layer!

I hope you've had fun along the hop, only a couple more of us to see, and your next stop is Genevieve! 

I hope you've left the Design Team some lovely comments along the way, when you've finished the hop, be sure to go back to the beginning and vote on which one of us has inspired you most, leaving your name and blog details with good old Mr Linky!

You've got until 11:59pm (EST) on Sunday November 29th to enter! The winners will be announced on the In Style Stamps Blog the day after!

Thank you so much for stopping by !

This is very pretty ~ and your coloring is great! I would guess that the chocolate would have been eaten at my house as well ~ at least you were left with one.
