     Ok then,  now that's taken care of- Here is my project for today:

I found these great Burlap frames at Walmart believe it or not!  I am not an artist by any means but I couldn't find a stencil so I hand painted this "stick" tree onto the canvas.  I used a q-tip to paint the ornaments and found the gold star in my stash.  Made a banner out of paper and presto...a fun little Christmas print!

Now, You don't want to miss a thing so just click here and it will take you right over to the awesome
 Deb Rodgerson who is next up on the hop!
***Blog Candy!!!  I will be sending a prize pack to one lucky winner that I will pick from all of the comments on my blog throughout the hop.  You must be a follower to win :)
