Mrs Claus Tea Light Ornament

I thought Santa needed his mate so I
made a Mrs. Claus Tea Light Ornament!

When I say the pictures don't do this beauty justice I mean it!
She is just as cute as can be in person.
Besides having no photography skills, I usually finish up my
projects when it is dark and have to take pictures under
energy saving light bulb and try to correct
the color and brightness in my photo editing software
which I'm not good at either.
When I made her glasses I used Glossy Accents on the
lenses.  It was looking so good until I got impatient
to put her all together.  I used my heat gun to hurry up
the drying and it started to bubble up.

I don't know if you can see in the picture but there is
definitely texture to her glass lenses.
In the end, I thought it looked like she was outside
in the cold and they frosted up.
Well, that's my story and I'm gonna run with it!
I used a silver glittered cardstock for the frames
of her glasses and I really like how those came out.
I'm not to sure about the mouth piece. On the
next one I may just draw it on and see what it looks like or
just use black cardstock instead of the pink.
I was going to use my sewing machine and do some
decorative stitching on her hat but changed my mind
and used the maribou trim. I trimmed it down so that
it would be the proper scale for the bonnet and I now have
itty bitty feathers all over my craft room.
The full instructions and supply list are in the MTC file
which you can download here:

Until next time,
