Lots to show and tell

Last night i had a get together with a group of friends - we generally meet up every fortnight to make cards etc (and eat lollies...lol)
I have only started tagging along to these get togethers...............but i absolutely LOVE them....
anyways...it was my turn to HOST everyone for the night...
I wanted to make it extra special and very Christmassy - so on the agenda was:

Christmas Baubles
Bon Bons - scrappin style
Post it Note holders
and of course Chrissy Cards
I think everyone had a fantastic time...i know i did....and i cant wait for the next one
(ruth....if you are reading this...i have some goodies saved for you)
Stupid me....forgot to take pics of all of us - busy creating....but i do have some photos of my end results.....

This card was made using the NEW Rusty Pickle 'Grinchmas' papers, and the bon bons were made using blue cardstock, Stampin Up stamps, and American Craft Ribbon.

Here are the Gorgeous baubles....i just love making these....ive made a few already...and will definatley make some more....i have come across some great IDEAS for these baubles on various blogs and websites....these ones were created by cutting strips of patterend paper..and then rolling them up and placing them inside the bauble with some fine sparkly tinsle and of course a bit of ribbon on top - to finish it off nicely
The card was created using strips of MM paper and a gold star brad on top - very simple

I finally finished off my ScrapFX tree, that Jill gave me.....
I just love it....i used the Basic Grey Fruitcake papers to decorate it....and it just looks wonderful as a centre piece on the table....
CHRISTMAS TREE oh CHRISTMAS TREE
We decorated the tree a little while a go...but ive only just got around to taking pics and uploading them......Im sad to say... these photos dont do my little tree any justice....(it does have a slight LEAN to it nowadays...lol) I think i will have to try and HUNT out a bargain tree on boxing day....because sadly.....i think i have too many decorations for my little tree....and it just cant carry the weight of my MANY ornaments.....lol!
Its the leaning tower of christmas tree......I do love it though....and yep...there is even some pressies under it already...

Looks and sounds like you guys had a GREAT time !

I made baubles a few years ago and wanted to make some this year, but I couldn't tell whether the ones I found at Spotlight actually came apart or not (they were in sealed packets). Where did you get yours from ?

I read about your placing in the SC comp -- CONGRATS !!
