Christmas Baubles

Don't know about you but I'm not getting on very fast with the Christmas cards, think the less is more will have to kick in at the last minute ( still have about 8weeks to get them done, what a scary thought eh, Christmas just round the corner!) but in the mean time will soldier on trying to create new designs just because it's fun and also don't find less is more very easy!  I suppose you could say this is a quick and simple card. Like to vary what I play with, well we have so much stash of varying kinds stashed away from prying eyes or little fingers in my case, Naomi my granddaughter is very partial to my glitter and punch drawers...yes have several, I bet there's a lot like me too lol!  This ones using one of my new buys from the Papeterie last Saturday... oh I do love a good old stash shop, gets the old grey cells jumping about again, ready to craft, it's as good an excuse as any in my book.... hee hee!  Red and Blue, seem to have a thing going with these colours at the mo, love them together. Made my own backing design with Hero Arts and Woodware stamps.Fits Ladybugcraftsink challenge this week. One one of there fab images in there blog hop the other week so hopefully will get it coloured and onto a Christmas card very soon.

Finally, someone else that doesn't have 60 cards made already..lol. You don't do you? Cause if you do, I'm the last person on earth who is waaaay behind for Christmas cards. :D
Your card is really fantastic. I love the concept of a swirl holding the ornaments! Truly unique thinking.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for your very sweet comment on my blog. You made my day
Hugs,
