ornament give-away

I have been working over the last few days on my ornaments for the Adorn Christmas Ornament Exchange. There are 12 of us in group and each of us artist have to make a dozen of the same ornaments that we then wrap and mail to each member of the group. we start opening our gifts on the first of December. Each year we get assigned a new number this year I am the number seven this year so that means that everyone in the group has to wait until the seventh of December to open my gift.

Now over the last few days I have been sharing with you a few desk views of progress and I thought that it would be fun to offer one of my ornaments as a give-away. On December 7th I will revel my ornament and also pick one winner who will receive there very own little parcel from me!
I will be using a random number generator to chose the winner. All you have to do is leave a commit to this post. good luck! (and make sure you enter my other give-away here)
