Christmas Baubles

Good morning and happy weekend to you all! This is the last post I am doing before my holidays, I have scheduled all my DT cards for whilst we are away.  Although we will have internet access and I am taking my I Pad I will not have time to comment whilst away so apologies for not coming round to see you all after today - I will look forward to catching up on all your lovely creations when I get back!

I have done a card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  I have not done a card for this challenge since it went to a monthly format but I saw such a pretty card on Lorraine's blog here which she had done for it and as it is a sketch I thought I just had to have a play!!

I have used the baubles image from the Penny Black A Bright Tomorrow set and the sentiment is from the Penny Black Merry and Bright Sentiment pack.  I have coloured the image with Copics and cut and matted with Circle Nesties.  The edge behind the image is actually border die - Spellbinders Ironworks - Debby showed how to do this on her blog A Scrapjourney. Oops just realised that picture is very wonky!! The papers are Nitwits Tapestry Christmas.  The bell is a die from CC Designs and the sentiment is cut from a Spellbinder banner die.

I'll leave you with a picture of my favourite ride The Incredible Hulk at Islands of Adventure:

Thanks for looking, see you all in a couple of weeks and take care xxx
