Christmas Bauble

Good evening and first let me say a huge sorry to my teamies at SFTW. This post should have been up this morning and I got so tied up with what is going on at work at the moment that it completely went out of my head and I didnt schedule my DT post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So once again I am so SORRY.

This fortnights challenge over at stampin for the weekend is a nice simple Anything goes. Our generous sponsor this time is The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.


Now my DT card for this challenge may seem a little early as its a Christmas card but if you have been outside today you now that winter is definitely on its way and Christmas is only 61 days away!

 
For those of you that have a Cricut bear with me on this one because it was only a few days ago that I realised that I could cut different shaped card blanks with it! I have only had the machine for 2 years.............A note to my self  use the tools that I buy more often,  they are not ornaments!!!!!!!!!!
I have used last years lost and found Christmas papers for this one on a circular Card base cut at 5.5 inches. The image is by the talented Mo Manning which you can find here . I coloured my image using copics and a touch of stickles.The metal sentiment was found in the £1 bin at a recent craft show. The flower I made using my new favourite Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe and of course the scalloped circle was cut using my nesties.

Challenges I would like to enter

Thanks for stopping by
