Brand New Challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia

 
Hello Everyone
 
Today is the day for our brand new challenge theme over at
 
We are thrilled to be sponsored by The Rubby Buggy
and you are in with a good chance to win a voucher to
spend in this fabulous store.
 
Our Easy peasy theme is Anything Goes, so there is no excuse not to join in!
We will not be having a midway post this month to give the team time with
their families over the festive period.
 
I have made this gift bag and bauble, for my mother as a pre-Christmas gift.

 
I made a bauble last year for myself and she loved it, so I made one for her, there a few extra little goodies to go in the bag too. 
To thank her for being a wonderful mum.
 
Sorry this is a long post, please click on the first picture and scroll though the side show.
 
 
 

 
In this picture you can see the 3 little snow balls that are glittered, cute hey!

I used Magnolia's Ginger Bread House die, to create the little house inside.
I have strung it with white seam binding to hang from the tree.
 

When I had glued the bauble together, I shook it, so the little snow balls and glitter would stick to the glue around the edge, which gives a nice snowy effect.
The flowers are normal store bought flowers, that I took apart and added the extra layers to create a fuller poinsettia.
 

 
As I don't have my tree up as yet, the picture below is of my own bauble from last year!
 


 
Many Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to look through my very looong post.
 
Don't forget to pop over to LHOSM and join in the challenge.
 
Christmas wishes from all the team.

On a personal note, I off on holiday to Greece on Tuesday for 2 weeks and will catch up with everyone's entries when I return home.
 
Here is my card, I felt that I needed to make a start on my Christmas cards and really enjoyed masking Tilda with my molly bloom background.
What would I do without my Misti tool he he!!!
 
 
 
 
 
I have coloured the Christmas scene with Copics and Prisma pencils.
The Central papers are Poinsettia paper from Pion design and I  hand cut a narrow red border around the layers and finished it off with green holly papers from my own goodies.

 
This picture shows the tag removed from the back of the image. It is threaded with seam binding, red & green divine twine and a little silver tinkling bell.

 
A peek at the base layer and lots of gorgeous embellies. The gorgeous roses are from Wild Orchids Vintage Colours Set and the pearl trim is from our Sponsors store.
I have decorated a small Christmas tree embellishment with Gesso and a few tiny pearls to match the colours in my card.
There is also flocking to the top of the stocking hanging from the fire place.
