Jesus is the Reason - Nuggets

Aren't these cute?  This was my first time using clear stamps.  I love them!!

I stamped the label stamp onto Avery Labels & then stamped the centers with other images included in the "Baby Jesus Nuggets" stamp set.  These were fun and super simple to make!

Bunco Ornaments

We had an ornament exchange at our Bunco Game Night.  Everyone brought 12 ornaments to exchange with each other.  These are the ones I brought... 

I designed the images on my computer then printed them on clear Ink Jetties from  Used the Coluzzle to cut out the circles, then rolled 'em up and put them into the glass ornament.  It was fun!!
P.S. When I joined the group, they were already named "Hot Bunco Babes", I thought it would be cute to print it on the ornament.
