Paper Sundaes Challenge - Gift it!

Happy Sundae!  What a crazy week it's been for me but I was sure looking to our Paper Sundaes Challenge this week!  The Challenge this week is "Gift it"!  That's right create something that you intend to give away as a gift.    As soon as I found out about this challenge I knew I wanted to create a gift bag (one of many I'll be making) because I always bake sweet treats & other goodies at Christmas time for my family & thought it would be a fun way to package them up.  I think I'll put some cellophaned wrapped caramel corn or fudge in this one.


Stamp & Create is our sponsor this week and I love this store!  If I had endless supplies of money I would shop there all the time since Lacey always has great sales and the shipping is FAST!  This image by CC Designs called "Sweet November - Sprite Darby & Pudge" was one I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!  I coloured her with my new Prismacolor pencils and I think I LOVE them as much as my copics!!  Never, ever thought I would say that!!  Once coloured I cut the image out with my Spellbinders Labels Eight and began adding snowflakes.  The larger snowflakes were all cut out using a Martha Stewart punch and the little snowflakes were cut out using and EK Success Punch.  All of the paper is all Basic Grey Wassail from last season & the crochet lace ribbon was some that I had purchased from Stamp & Create this past summer.  I also sprayed the snowflakes with Glimmer Mist however it doesn't show up as well in the photo as it does in person.

I will be entering my gift bag into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Christmas Gift
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Anything Christmas (but not a card)
Wags N Whiskers Challenge 42 - Snowflakes
All that Scraps - Snowflakes
Stamp & Create - Challenge #7 - Tis the Season
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge Week 25- Anything but a card
