A Lovely New Ornament For My Tree

December 13, 2009

Brrr! The sun is shining this morning, but it is COLD!! I guess it's appropriate weather, considering that Winter is only a week away, but that does not mean that I have to like it.

I think in a little while here I am going to get into some warm jammies, and curl up on the sofa with the fireplace on and watch some TV. Most likely nap!! Poor Tootsie is sitting here thinking, "Are you kidding? Another nap?" Maybe I'll play a bit with her first, then hop on the sofa.

Please forgive any misspellings this morning. I try to catch them all, but it is not easy. I have a bandaid on my first finger, and it is raising havoc on my typing!! Yesterday, I got a beautiful Christmas card from Kyra. Inside it was a beautiful ornament, which I immediately hung on the top of my teeny weeny tree. Here is my card.

And here is my tree with my beautiful new ornament on the top of it. My little tree has fiber optic lights built into the tips of the branches, so there is no need to add lights. I did hang a few very small ornaments (not midget sized) on the bottom of the tree, but they look enormous. I made this layout to show how the colors on the tree keep changing. Plus, we had to make a layout showing our Christmas tree for one of the challenges.

Yesterday afternoon, I got a wonderful spurt of design mode, and was able to finish up my portion of the January DD kit, and get it all uploaded. Then I started on February. If this keeps up, I can get fairly caught up on all my projects. Want to see a sneak peek at one piece of the January kit? Sh-h-h-h! Don't tell anyone I showed you this!

And, of course, I have another beautiful shot of this morning's moon. I added some background noise to the photo so that you could see (if you look really close) the whole moon. This shot fascinated me. I hope you like it.

Ok, that's enough of my babbling for this morning. Time to make a cup of coffee, change into jammies, and play a bit with Miss Tootsie. Y'all have a really fantastic day now.
Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna, Do you ever use Neat Image to remove noise. It may work well on your moon shot. Another way is to do a 2 or 3 pixel feather and then erase over the moon or make a mask 1st since it is one color and easy to do so. Mary Ann

Hello Edna! Yeah for the postoffice! You received your card. It's looking rather big, the ornament, but I like your idea of using it as a tree topper! LOL. Isn't it a nice idea we are a bit connected to eachother by the ornaments? Oh wow, you made some beautiful pics of the birds!!! And the Jan DD looks fabulous!! Your christmastree layout is sooo sweet and I really like the little tree! Have a fantabulous day Hugs Kyra
