Winter Wonderland!!

Happy Wednesday everyone! It surely is no winter wonderland here in VA although it is brrrr....COLD & snow flurries in the air! I'm still hopin' for some sun today (wishful thinking perhaps). My kids are doing the snow dance every night, but I can definitely wait--I HATE WINTER so I'm just gonna say I'm waiting on spring from now on, lol! And because I'm so cold and have lots of holiday projects to work on I'm keepin it short for ya today (yes, really, lol)!

Today is Whatchadoin' Wednesday over at Storage Units, Ink and More and our challenge was to make a holiday gift bag. You can join in too and upload with the keyword SUINKWWC15 so we can all see! I decided that you can't really give a gift w/o a card right? So I made a coordinating gift bag & card! I really wanted to use some other images from SUINK's new "Aspen" stamp set and this one was perfect. She doesn't actually hold the mug of cocoa, its a separate stamp in the set, but I drew her arm in on that side and then added the mug (cut out & popped up & glitterfied)! Coloring is all Copics and the dp is from DCWV "Winter Stack". The sentiments are from SUINK's "Winter Thoughts" which you can get free with the purchase of 6 stamp sets--great sentiments in that set too!

The gift bag was just a plain white bag w/ handle that I literally cut down to size and added my own ribbon handle to the sides (SU ribbon). Plain bags are so much fun (& easy) to personalize & decorate for your gift recipients--not to mention how much cheaper than the store ones! The snowflakes are from my Marvy and Martha Stewart punches and I just layered them and added glitterdots on top. Just a fun, cheerful holiday gift set for you to give to someone special. Create a gift bag & upload to SCS so we can see all your fun holiday creations! And check out my DT sistah's wonderful creations over on the SUINK blog too!

I'm back to working on projects today & oh boy, do I have lotsa new goodies to share with you in the upcoming days--fun, fun!! BTW, my friend Susana is having a sale on all her HOTP stamps so go check 'em out (25% off) over at her store!! See ya tomorrow!
