Gift Bag or Box

Good morning followers
Our challenge this week over at CRAFT Challenges is to make a Gift Bag or Box - well I was a bit of a rebel as I had just bought these lovely handbag shaped card blanks.  I have covered it with some fab papers from Stitchy Bear "Christmas Lights" which I printed onto gold shimmer card.

Such a shame you can't see just how much this card stock glimmers through the lovely santa papers.

 I have decoupaged one of the santa's, added some tags (which came with the card blanks) some lovely ribbon and  a couple of snowflakes...

Hope you will come and join us at CRAFT Challenges this week

Have a great weekend - I will as I am off to Yorkshire for some sea air and relaxation

A Recipe for you to try..............

Not a foodie recipe a papercrafting recipe lol

1 - image
2 - backing papers
3 - different embellishments

Don't you just hate dark mornings and evenings for taking piccies of your work :(

Dark when i go to work and darker still by the time i get home

but anyway less moaning Sylv  - here is my card for the challenge over at Nutcrafters and our Gemma wanted us to work from the recipe above.  I have used a lovely image from the new Nutcrafter range (coloured with my flexmarkers and promarkers) 2 free backing papers and finally added 3 embellishments - mittens - jewellery wire and a star...I love adding stars to cards....

Feel free to come and join us and if you use one of the nutcrafters images (free ones available too) you could win a £10 voucher.

Look forward to visiting all those great blogs over the next couple of weeks

Christmas time

Christmas is the theme over at CRAFT Challenges this week and i got to use a super digi from Stamp Fairy
coloured with my promarkers and dusted off my poinsetta die which is one of my all-time favourites

Bit of matting and layering and a swirl and job done.

Happy crafting folks..
