Christmas Ornaments @ Inspired Stamps

Top of the morning to you all!
Being Tuesday, I am sailing into today with a creation made with 
Inspired Stamp

This week the girls were ask to make some Christmas ornaments
And I had some great fun playing with ideas and eventually coming up with something :) 

Here is where Mr Mojo and I went this week ! 

Now ... I have a thing with music and Christmas!  So I could not go past using the staff from the Inspired Stamps - Sing for Joy set!  This set is just magical to me, I love it and I adore it! So for my ornament I made my own backing paper using the staff.  I have embossed it in fine black embossing powder to give it a slightly raised effect when your fingers run over it & the embossing powder also shines and sparkles a little when light hits it and reflects off it (I was thinking for when the lights are all on the Christmas tree that it should really stand out and look beautiful).  The hearts are a diecut that I then mounted some lace behind and added a twine bow with a gold bell to finish it all off.  

This was super easy and fast to make and I have fallen in love with it!  I don't think I will be hanging this off my tree though, cause alas, I think Mr Mojo has bigger plans for this ornament yet!  
Sooo  ...
You will just have to drop by and see me on say .... 
the 23rd of November!
and see where this ornament found its home in my home!
