I'm still plugging away on the Country Garden Stitchery Santa design, but I did finish 2 smaller ornaments - both from Just Nan's "3 Santas" charts.
First is my annual ornament for my daughter.  In the chart, the text under Santa's hand reads "Be Merry" - I changed it to her name, and added my signature and the year.  The backing is a small holly berry branch print.  I trimmed it with green satin rat tail and 2 little star buttons with red bead centers.

This is my second little Santa ornament.  The fabric to the left is the backing, with one of those cute little Santas centered on the back.  The trim is a bead ribbon I got at the thrift store, tied with a plain ribbon bow. 
(Both Santas are stitched on the same fabric - a 28-ct. tan evenweave - but for some reason they photographed a little differently.)

I love that you stitch your daughter an ornament each year and this one is adorable! The round one is so cute, too--great find in the bead trim :)

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas, Erin!
