Project Tuesday Gift Bag

OMG...I have been slacking and not doing much of anything:( Well, I received a phone call the other night and was scolded for my "slacking"...And you know who you are:) Thanks for that because it got my butt moving. Sometimes we jsut need a swift kick in the...butt to get back into the swing of things.
I made this gift bag for the PROJECT TUESDAY GIFT BAG CHALLENGE. I think that I made it just in time. Not too sure what is going in the gift bag yet, but I know that I will give it to my sister Sylvia.

The snowglobe and the Santa Sleigh are both from the Christmas Noel Cart and embossed the globe with d'vine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder. Also added some pop-dots to make it a shaker snowglobe and filled it with Martha Stewarts Mica Flakes. I made the tag from A Childs Year Cart and heat embossed the sentiment.

DH said that it was too blue so that is why I added the irridescent pearls (not sure what they are actually called) around the top and the bottom of the bag. (I think that it looks much better in real life compared to the pic).

Thanks for taking the time to read my babbling and/or looking at my gift bag!!!

OCC 12/3/09 Sketch Challenge

What a great way to get some of my X-mas cards done by doing some of the awesome challenges!!! I made this card for the OCC sketch challenge. Make sure to stop by and check out what everyone came up with!!! I used PDDU for the gingerbread people (they are just too cute) and used an embossing pen to heat emboss the "icing" on them, also heat embossed the snowflakes on the corners and the sentiment. The ribbon is a navy blue..not sure if you can tell from the pic. TFL!!!!!!!!

Project Tuesday Easel Card

I thought this card was going to be a little tough to make since I have never made an easel card, but it is quite simple to do. This card also took me a few days to finish since I haven't been feeling well, oh well enough of my boo hooing. Please be sure to check out the DT's cards and all the cards from everyone who participated in the challenge HERE. Thanks for looking!!!
