but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Dueling Darlings - A Christmas Story

Merry Christmas!

Today on my blog is the project I made for the Dueling Darlings December challenge.

Jeanette was the hostess for the Dazzlers this month and the kit was wonderful!  The kit included:

Images by Kraftin Kimmie "O Holy Night"
DP by Paper Studio
Embellishments from Hobby Lobby and Michaels
and the blue trim I used for the hanger was found by Jeanette on one of her treasure hunt finds (she loves garage and yard sales)

In the spirit of Christmas and since we just put up our tree I decided to make a Christmas ornament instead of a card.  The base of the ornament is a square coaster.

Here it is:

I think the greatest Christmas memory I have growing up is how much my dad loved Christmas.  He decorated the inside of the house as well as the outside.  Didn't matter how cold it was, the Christmas decorations got put up.  Lights everywhere!  One year he even built three large cross out of wood, wrapped them in foil, put lights on them and then placed them in the front yard.  BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please check out all the Dueling Darlings blogs to see their creations. Links to their blogs are in my sidebar.

Merry Christmas!
