Here I've used a Paper Artsy stamp of some baubles - now I do craft blogging I more often hear them called 'tree ornaments', but I had never heard of that term before! It's probably an American English term.(?) Like burlap, which we call hessian. And it's a long time since I called a brad by it's British English name of 'paper fastener'.

Okay, ramble over...I'd like to enter:

Marina, your baubles/Christmas ornaments are PURE delight! Love the bright red/white combination and the 'scribbly' bauble strings, with deck the halls embedded in one. Super fabulous!

Fantastic card Marina. The baubles look amazing against all the white.

Love Chrissie x

Love the bright crisp colour combo Marina. Those Wesley bobs are fab. There you have another term for Christmas ornaments, my friend from Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire calls them this. I'd never heard them called that before and I was brought up in Sheffield not so far away.
Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM this week. :)

Such a fun stamped image and love the bit of texture you added the background! Thank you so much for taking the time out to share with us this week at Colour Me...! We sure hope to see you again soon :)

Love the whimsical image and your coloring. And also the background, that's super interesting, yet doesn't take away from the main focal point. Great job!

Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!
