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.
