Christmas Baubles:

Good Friday morning!  It has been crazy busy around here - I can't wait to sleep in just a little tomorrow :)

Since it's Friday, my short term goal is to make a Christmas card every Friday - so far so good!  I think that's four weeks in a row now.

I used this sweet Bauble Freebie and had some fun with paper piecing:

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, DCWV papers, Bazzill and Recollections cardstock, Martha Stewart Fire Opal and Tourmaline glitter, BasicGrey and Dress It Up buttons, My Mind's Eye bakers twine, Recollections gems.  Tools:  sewing machine, EK Success corner punch.

I made this bauble card for the following challenges:  Digi Haven - forever freebie digi,  Christmas Card - just Christmas is okay, ABC Christmas - CAS, DYSU? - paper piecing, Christmas Stampin' - anything Christmas, Merry Monday - sketch:

As always, today is StampFairy's new release Friday.  Meet Molly Graduation:
{sorry, no picture available at this time}

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  Thanks for the visit.
