Beautiful baubles.

God morning all and thanks for joining me.

We arrived back home at 11-30pm last night and oh my Tess and Eric were so pleased to us. I think Adam and Danielle are just glad that they didn't have to do the 7-30am dog walk again today.

We had such a lovely couple of days driving around County Down, it is such a beautiful place and the people are so kind and welcoming.

We found the most magical places

And we have set the date for next Years Clarity Belfast...

I am looking forward to it already.

Whilst we were away I had a couple of emails from crafters asking how I made the bauble that was on here recently....

So here we go....

This is one that I made for Barbara using the new bauble stamp set....

I just found it humorous to stamp a bauble in a bauble...!!!!!sorry...that's the way my mind works...

The bauble itself comes with the card and is available from the Creativ company

I stamped the bauble shape, and added the mask

Next some Artistry inks, and some background stamping .

Then I stamped inside the bauble

I thought these lights made a lovely place for the Robin to stand.

I just had to add some colour...

Do remember to decorate both sides of the card, also some sparkle and glitter look good too.

All that is left to do then is add some sprinkles to the base and snap both sides of the bauble together.

The good thing is the the bauble can be separated again if needed..

There are lots of stamps that look fabulous inside these lovely baubles..

Also ribbon , berries etc can be added , how about using the alphabet stamps and being able to personalise them.

Baby's first Christmas many possibilities..

I had better get on, I am off to a Groovi class this morning with some lovely crafty ladies and then it is our monthly Clarity workshop day tomorrow at Grosvenor House in Kendal...( hope you have remembered Mum .....I am coming for my tea....)

Take care all

Love and hugs
