Now....

this sweet HO HO HO South Carolina Ornament has got to be my FAVORITE so far!

Well...Maybe as of TODAY...anyway!

Tomorrow is another Day!

This time I couldn't pass up using this Beautiful South Carolina State Ho Ho Ho Applique Design from Embroidery Boutique. 

This Super Cute design stitched like a dream and using the 4X4 size was just PERFECT for a Christmas Ornament Mount. 

Once again...I stitched it on a piece of 25 count White Opalescent Lugana Cross Stitch Fabric

with a piece of Warm and White 100% Cotton Batting on the backside. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Sparkly fabric...

it shimmers so nicely for ornaments!

I then mounted the stitched pieced (and batting) onto a piece of Sticky Board...

and then covered a second piece of Sticky Board with a Christmas Plaid fabric that

closely matches the color threads I used to stitched the actual design itself.

I also used a Sparkly Silver and White cording around the paremeter of the actual first layer where the design is stitched onto...

I just Love the BLING it adds to the Ornament itself!

How about YOU?
