My Time To Craft 'Baubles' Challenge

Good morning everyone, thank you for stopping by. The mornings and evenings are getting colder but the daytime is still not too bad, does that mean we are going to get snow next week as they have forecast? I really don't want snow until after Christmas at least as my daughter is due her baby in two weeks but of course that could be four if she goings over and I really want to be able to go and see them. If it snow's I will have to wait until it has cleared because she lives nearly three hours away!

Anyhow onto the matter in hand and that is a new challenge at My Time To Craft where we are challenging you to use 'Baubles' as your main image. As soon as I saw the challenge I immediately thought to use my Lili of The Valley 'Christmas Baubles' stamp which I love but that would mean colouring and my hands have not been up to that this week. So instead I made a card with my Silhouette Cameo.

I used the Lori Whitlock A2 Swing Card Christmas Ornament #50949 file but I resized it to make an A5 sized card. I also used patterned paper from the store to called Bright Bells Pattern #35645 by Jennifer Wambach. I used white hammered card for my base and for my ornament to give a bit of texture to it. It was quite hard to photograph so have added three photo's to show it in action. All other card stock is Bazzill

 This is it when fully open, I will add a sentiment to the inside but haven't decided on one as yet.

 This is it when swinging, I think one of the grandchildren will like this.
Card Stock - Bazzill & Unknown Hammered White
Sentiment - Unkown Old Wooden Stamp

Wow that has got to be the shortest list of supplies lol.

That is all from me for today, we have the decorator coming tomorrow so have had to completely empty our second bedroom out and boy you don't realise how much is in a room until you empty it!

Have a lovely weekend all.
