Baubles and candy

Today's post has two cards for two challenges and some candy news too. Both cards feature fab new bauble digi images from Lil-Boo's Boutique. There are six in the collection and they are all gorgeous.

My first card is for the sketch by Dawny at Papertake Weekly. I used the little girl and presents bauble for this one and opted for shades of pink and lilacs to be very girly!

She's shaded with ProMarkers and smothered in Glamour Dust for Christmas sparkle. The papers and the paper ribbon are digi downloads from Pink Petticoat and Mad About Cards. I made the flower with a Sizzix die.

This snowman bauble card is for the challenge over at Sketch and Stash - my new stash are these fab digi images!

He's also shaded with ProMarkers and the patterned paper is again Mad About Cards download. The digi image is from Funky Fairy's with a Doodlebug button popped on. My snowy background was a bit of a disappointment, I used a Spellbinders embossing plate but it hasn't turned out very well. The sooner I get a new embossing mat the better!

And finally look at this candy that's up for grabs on the La-La Land crafts Christmas blog hop!
