Oh Baubles at Winter Wonderland

Time for me to play along with WW again and the theme this week is baubles - I do love my baubles so I loved playing along with this one.
The actual bauble is a die cut by cuttlebug inked with distress ink then overstamped with a Blonde Moments Christmas background holly stamp. A little stickles added for sparkle. Paper is by papermania, sentiment by sandylion, card candy craftwork cards and ribbon from stash. Stop by the Winter Wonderland blog and see what gorgeousness (is that a word?) my teamies have come up with - Go on what are you waiting for get your baubles out xx

Christmas card class

Here is what greeted my lovely ladies last night to get them feeling Christmassy. Chocolate German biscuits, cinnamon candle, jingle seasoning and a Merry Christmas flag for the posh bin!
Thinking this was a little plain I then added a box I had decorated last year and my atcs rom the Running with scissors shop Christmas swap.

here is a closer peep. I also had a display of all the handmade cards I was sent last year - cannot bear to get rid of them so if you sent me one it was up!

This was our card - Inspired by Jills card here. In a tent card version. Have grown to love chipped sapphire ink especially at Christmas and of course Tims fabulous stamps and die cuts all add to the look.
Am beside myself with excitement about tomorrows retreat who knows maybe Lovin' Ink will one day do a Christmas Retreat too - then I won't sleep all year LOL.
Back tomorrow with my winter wonderland DT card - I do miss playing along weekly but I have only so many hours in a day these days I make the most of when I can :0)
Thanks for stopping by my Christmas crafty place x Janet
