[Oops! Sorry –  hit “publish” before I was ready! Too much turkey, I’m still sleepy in the head!]

Happy KSS Monday!

… getting ready for Christmas!



With my finger, I smeared a small amount of Rock Candy – Distress Stickles, over each ornament to make them sparkle. After the ornaments dried, I used a 1/16″ hole punch at the top of each ornament and ran a couple of inches of silver cord through each one. Attached each ornament with a pop dot. Pierced holes where I wanted to “hang” the ornaments. Starting from the front side of my card, I threaded each end of the silver cord (with an ornament attached) through the “hanging” holes. From the back side of the card, I pulled both ends of the cord until taught, but not to hard –  you don’t want rip the ornament. Tape both ends of the cord down in back. Repeat until all ornaments are “hung”.


Don’t forget to check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you today.
