Must see an Ornament or it could be an Ornament!

Hello fellow blogger
It's that well known saying from me 
Sparkles Christmas Buddies
Has a new challenge today
It starts from the 1st of each month
Choosen by our very own 
Mary
Must see an Ornament or it could be an Ornament!
As we are a christmas challenge blog it's got to be christmassy
And here is my take
 This is of course a Christmas Cracker and a musical christmas tree
l just love the novelty tree but when the grandchildren where younger
It sort of frighten them not so much now they love it as l do
l didn't make the cracker it was a card from a dear friend and 
It's just great for this challenge 
As you see it's got a couple of bows, gems and sentiment shop bought l think
l save lots of card fronts as they come in handy for recycling as l have
Done for this challenge 
Hopefully you will join in and it would be lovely to see what your take can be
You can see the Dt's wonderful creations
Now lets see yours
Thankyou for stopping by hope you enjoyed your visit
