day 3: hand stamped metal and frame ornament

Day three is here!

I was lucky enough to get a great goodie box in the mail this week from ImpressArt which included their newest font “lollipop” and some blanks to play with.  As soon as it arrived, I broke it out and got to work on this little frame ornament!
