Christmas baubles!!!

Hello peeps!!!! well the weekend flew by.I had a super weekend, we took little Mo to legoland on saturday and he loved it. He spent a really long time walking around the little model villages! he was amazed by it all. On my way home I hand delivered a happy mail to my friend michelle who lives right near legoland, I have never seen her in person and couldn't stay as we had a 3 hr journey ahead of us to get home but it was so nice to surprise her!!!

Then on sunday my brother and his wife came with my niece and my nephews. Mo is very close to all of his cousins,both my brothers and my sisters children are his "bestest friends"!!!! and always loves to see them.

Then I had a small disaster with my stickles!!! it was so funny because I had had an email from one of my lovely friends saying she had had a problem with her stickles drying!! I decided I needed to use them on my DT card for the gorgeous new bauble collection over on lily-boo's boutique, I wanted to use him in the snowflakes challenge we were having over on the UK crafters thread on the cricut mb.

I popped them on the snowman and left them to dry, 3 hours later they still weren't dry.......4 hours later and yey they were dry .....but they had made the eyes on my snowman run and they had turned a sort of browny colour!!! my snowman looked as if he had been drinking too many snowballs at the christmas party!!!! so hence to say, I had to start again!! Here is the finished effort!!! lol!!!!

So this time I stuck with my promarkers and my shimmer chalks!!!! they are a little bit hard to see in the picture but I popped some versamark all over the bauble when I had finished colouring it and the sky and snowman are all shimmery. I cuttlebigged some co-ordinations blue card with snowflakes on the base mat and swiss dots on the stripe where I popped my spotty ribbon. I inked the edges with a silver cats eye chalk and then foam dotted my bauble on. I made a little bow from the ribbon and popped it on the top of the bauble so it looked tied onto the ribbon.

I have got loads of cards to do this week so I had better get started tonight!!

Don't forget to click on the link and nosey at the bauble collection, its gorgeous!!! The DT have been really busy with them and I need to update the inspirations blog tonight too!!!
Thankyou for popping in xxxxxxx
