From Thimbleprims gothic ornament swap!

Here are the ornaments I received from Cindy at Thimbleprims. She hosted the 'Gothic Christmas Ornament Swap' and I must admit that when I first spotted this, all I could think about was the 'Nightmare before Christmas'  I didn't know if I could come up with anything for this, but I decided to do Gothic Victorian Christmas ornaments.  I felt like it was a real challenge for me, but it was fun.  I am adding at the bottom of this post, the ornaments that I made for this swap, which were posted earlier!

                                                                                  


I only got three ornaments done, for the thimbleprimsstudio.blogspot.com They are quite detailed, and very victorian.  I decided that I would do Christmas Victorian Gothic,  and this is my interpretation of that.  I hope the 3 participants who get my ornaments will like them.  I do, and wish I had one for myself.

Posted by PicasaCindy also sent me this wonderful chandelier piece which is already hanging up in my studio, and this wonderful new journal, that I badly need.  The cards she chose went so well with the theme too.  Thankyou so much to Cindy, this swap broadened my horizons.

Michele I love your little ornaments! Adorable!

About the Cuttlebug doing embossing...I love it. I thought for sure the Cricut would have embossing dies. It doesn't? The Cuttlebug is under $100 and you can use your 40% off coupon at Joann's and it's on sale now online. I bought all the dies on sale too. I love the embossing feature most of all.

Hugs, Diane
