Challenge Sunday

It's Sunday again & you know what that means ~~ another High Hopes challenge!! This week's challenge come to us from Nikki, & we are to make anything BUT a card! I chose to make a gift bag ~~ I'll be needing lots of these soon enough!!


I used one of the new releases, Woodland Santa. I stamped him onto Whisper White using my new Memento ink (love this stuff) & colored him with Prisma pencils & Gamsol. I then added glitter to his hat & made his axe shiny with my Sakura clear glaze pen. I used my Nesties to cut just the scalloped rectangle & the "button" is a Sizzix die. The papers are from a DCWV glitter stack that I bought on clearance after Xmas last year. The bag is actually a white lunch bag that I cut down a bit, & added the tissue & ribbon. I will be making lots of these gift bags this year for teachers so it's nice to get a head start!


Make sure you check out what all the other divas did on the High Hopes blog & also on their individual blogs. Please join us by making something other than a card & posting it in the comments of the challenge blog!!

Hope you all have a great Sunday! I'm having lunch with a friend that I haven't seen in a while so I'm looking forward to that. My kindergartener is off tomorrow because of conferences, so it's a "Michael & Mommy day". Haircut, lunch & a trip to Toys R Us!! I'm pretty sure our day will not include stamping, lol, but I have started several projects that I hope to complete soon!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
