oh baubles!!!

Hello everyone!!
I am just about defrosted from watching Ryan play football this morning!! my nose and fingertips are still cold but I had to get off the radiator to take a picture of this little guy to share with you all!!!!
I bought a pack of glittery baubles last year with the intention of popping pictures of our family in for the christmas tree (.....I haven't gotten round to that yet!!) and I was just playing with my gingerbread men collection from lily-boo's boutique and had a bit of inspiration!!!!!!!
I did a bit of cropping and resizing to get him down to the size I wanted to fit him into the bauble and then coloured him with my promarkers. I popped a bit of glaze on his eyes, mouth,bow and buttons and then glittered around him with fine irredescent glitter ( hard to see in the picture!!)
Then I popped him into the bauble and made some holly from 2 mini holly leaves and 2 mini red jingly bells!! I popped some stickles on the leaves to snowy them up a bit and then tied some fluffy ribbon to the hanger bit!!! I think he's cute!!!

and here he is just on his own!!!
