Tag Tuesday-Baubles and Bling

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here!
Here's my Baubles and Bling tag for this week's Tag Tuesday

 way to make the baubles. Then I remembered my

Christmas Cards

I have been printing some Christmas cards,

the wind howling round my loft, I feel very in touch
with the elements. As a bonus, I emerge a couple of hours
later covered in glitter!
