Christmas bauble!

It's fantastic here in the UK.....we have snow! It hasn't snowed so close to Christmas for years and my three children are loving it. Luckily, a few weeks ago I had the forethought of buying a sledge for each of them. So they have had an early Christmas present which has been well used over the last couple of days.

I thought I would make a special card for Lynn the owner of my local papercraft shop Flutterby Crafts in Newbury, Berkshire, in the UK. A few years ago she made a comment that not many people make her cards as they are scared what she might think of them! How sad for the owner of a papercraft shop not to receive hand made cards!!!! Nevertheless, it is intimidating to say the least.

I set about making my shaped bauble card from the Joys of the Season cartridge which has been welded together. I used the Craft Creations paper which I am loving and have already put an order in for next year as I have bought the last piece in the shop! I used my circle nestabilities and computer generated the wording on the card for the personal touch. I have blinged it up with the glitter snowflake from the same cartridge and used the silver ribbon to make the bow.

This morning I wrapped up, and took a photograph of the card out in the garden as the snow began to melt, shame!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has taken time to look at my blog (seeing as I am a newbie) and special thanks to those of you who have left such lovely comments.

Merry Christmas.
