Just one more ...

I have one more  Christmas card to show you and  then I  am not  making any more for a few weeks.

This one has the  aperture removed with the  largest of the Heirloom Baubles  and the centre filled with some more of the pretty  stripy paper.

I have then cut another  Heirloom  bauble and covered it with Micro Glass Beads  which adds  lots of texture to the shape ... you can just make them out  if you enlarge the picture.

I buy mine in pots  from  Creative Studios  and there are lots of other goodies too.

The beautiful Diamante strip on the front of the Bauble is from Want2Scrap   along  with the Swirl on each side of the aperture....  on the right hand corner.

I have matted it all onto some silver mirror card

The little sentiments are from a set I bought many years ago from   The Glitter Girls  and they are all wood mounted.

So I am having a free weekend this week.  

Today  we are going to visit some friends on their Canal boat and going for a sail through some locks on the canal near "Botany Bay"

We will be having a spot of lunch on the way and I just hope it is not raining....

Then next Sunday the 26th ... I am going to the Sincerely Yours Craft Show  in Leigh.

I've got my pennies all saved up and a list of what I want ... and I can't wait

Hugs xx
