Holiday Celebration decorations with Stamp Fairy's Barry

Good Morning Friends - yikes it's starting to feel a lot like winter around here  brrrrrrrr it's cold outside!! Which doesn't help my horrible chest cold when I have to be out in it!

Today Stamp Fairy has a new challenge for you and this week the theme is Holiday Celebrations 
Since we are getting closer to the Holidays our challenge will run 
through the end of the month, giving the team a bit of a break to spend time with their 
family during the holidays.

Hope you will share with us some of your holiday celebration projects.

For my design share, I am using the new Count down to Christmas Barry 

This is the newest Barry Collection that Gerda just released this past Friday
and of course he is as sweet as can be - 
I made a Christmas tree ornament with some great little press board ornaments I found at our local 
Hobby Lobby - and of course with their great prices and then add in 50% off these were 
almost free so I just couldn't pass them up. So a dozen or so just happen to find their way into my basket. hahaha!

Christmas is one of my most favorite holidays and I love to decorate the house with 
lighted trees in every room.  Here's my newest addition to my array of the different trees I set up each year and this one is definitely one I am just feeling the love for!

I used a few of the different Barry Bears from Barry Winter 
colored them with Copic added lots of glitter and Stickles, distressed the edges of each with Tim Holtz Distressed Walnut stain along with distressing the ornament edges, wrapped some green plaid ribbon around the edges and then topped with a ribbon bow. My two year old grandson Reece has claimed this tree as his.
he loves to touch each one and since they won't break it's even a bigger thrill when Grandma doesn't say "No touch" LOL! Still have a few more to finish up and add to the remaining areas, and hope to have it completed by this week.
