Arthur Bauble

Morning Peeps!
Well it's here my winter holidays - wahoooooooo! I am MEGA excited as I have a whole 2 weeks - yes 2 weeks off! I am going to get so festive, the tree is going to go up sometime (I think next Sunday!) and if I can't buy my pressies I'm at least going to know what I'm going to get!!!
So as I am super excited I don't think I could sleep this am & I've been up since about 6am and I sat at my desk & made this cute little Christmas Decoration.
I bought a paper mache bauble from Hobbycraft - you know the kind you you use for decopatch.  Well it started it's life looking like this:
So to transform my boring bauble I covered it with Forever Friend Kraft Notes Christmas spotty paper, then I added a border punched with Martha Stewart doily lace punch & I added some real (& very pretty lace) I then added my gorgeous Arthur Makey Bakey Snuggles Image which I've colored with Spectrum Noirs, I added the greeting & some jewels.  Round the edge of the bauble I added some burgundy ribbon & then at the top I added a bow! I've stuck everything together with Tacky Glue.

I colored Arthur with TN1 TN2 TN3 TN5, Nose CR4 CR5 CR8, Hands & Ears FS4 FS6 & Feet & Tail IG1 IG2 IG5 IG7
I must say I am very pleased with how this has turned out.  I would like to enter my bauble into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - Make a Gift
The ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for Winter Wishes
I'm off to just do nowt - 'cos I actually can LOL see you all soon!! x x x x
