Two Little Chickadees Sitting in a Tree...

The Shabby Tea Room is having a DT call and I am answering it!!
This ornament was made with the inspiration from the Victorian Teapot shown in the following post...I have two projects today, so please scroll down for the card.
I love Chickadees...and I love Christmas! When I saw the deep red and white from the teapot...I had two immediate thoughts, and one of them was Christmas!
The image of these adorable chickadees was an old note card I had and did not want to throw away. So I decoupaged it on to these glass ornaments. I followed up making a frosty scene with some TH crackle paint, flower soft for snow and white fluffy pom poms. I added a narrow line of glitter to finish off the edges and Pearl Glimmer mist to give it even more shimmer. The bow is three parts, white crochet lace formed into a bow, tied off with a button from PTI and crochet linen thread and hung with some pretty silk ribbon.
I am excited to submit this for The Shabby Tea Room challenge...and hope you will make a comment if you think I have a chance. Either way, I love these projects and have made something I truly enjoy and will use!!
Thanks so much for dropping in...have a blessed Sunday!!
