Gold Baubles:

Hello all!  I decided to pop into my craft room after work today and make another Christmas card.  I feel like I almost have strep throat and want to get as much done as I can this weekend before I get too sick.  *fingers crossed that I won't*

I used a StampFairy Bauble freebie and paper pieced for a smidge of a vintage feel.

I wanted to use the same sketch as I did yesterday, but this time I used a true digi stamp and I am now able to submit to the sketch challenge without breaking the rules.  I promise I didn't mean to last time - it was an honest mistake :)  I am nothing if not determined :)


Glitter everywhere!!!  I added some fun and festive glitter to the flower.  If I didn't have my Christmas colours already for the house, I would go for purple and gold.  Such a pretty combination!
And yes, purple jingle belles - wahooo!! 
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Craftsmart Gold and Tim Holtz Old Paper inks, Recollections gems, American Crafts jute, Martha Stewart Gold glitter, Creatology jingle bells.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Making Memories edge ripper, Spellbinders Lattice Shapeabilites.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch plus stitching (do not display sketch), Winter Wonderland - Oh Baubles, Card Crafters Circle - textures, Sweet Stamps and Ginger Loft - gold, Crafty Catz - sparkle.

And meet StampFairy's newest member, Mimi Christmas:


Have a terrific weekend - I hope to finish decorating my ginormous Christmas wreath so we can actually sit at our dining room table again :)

I love the glitter on the flower and bauble, and the purple bells on the twine are such a nice added touch. Another spectacular creation. I'm so sad that I won't see your new Christmas wreath with being in Wpg. next month.
