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.
