Colorful Creations - Palette 9

Well the countdown is on with only 24 more sleeps until Christmas YIKES!!!  Okay slow down and take deep breaths I'm sure you all have it under control....LOL!!!  If not well then just wing it as I'm sure it will be way less stressful than trying to make everything perfect for day that seems to appear so fast and disappear just as rapidly.

Well to kick of the start of the Month we have a load of challenges over at Colorful Creations and yes I know we are all strapped for time but the great thing is you've got the entire month to get these challenges completed with the added bonus of being able to win a RAK.  All RAK's are donated by the Design Team members and are randomly selected so you have just as good a chance as anyone.

If you love colour palettes why not check out this months beautiful colours and some of the work has been done for you as I have matched the colours to a paper line.  If you would like to check out my challenge please click here.

Of course to keep in the spirit of Christmas I elected to create not only a Card but a little Gift Bag that can also be recycled.  The Gift Bag idea is something I discovered on Pinterest and thought it would make  a great present.  I have also decorated the back.

Christmas Bag & Card

The handles of the bag were recycled from a set a towels I purchased and I  have used PaperTrey Ink die "Jar & Lid" and "Friendship Jar" stamp set.

 On the back of the bag I have used a Pink Paislee stamp around the edges and cut the removable tag using Memory Box "Pocket Gift Tag".   The tag has then been slipped in between the strip of paper and then secured with a piece a ribbon.


Product Use:  My Minds Eye "All is Bright" papers and stickers, Prima & Dusty Attic Flowers, PaperTrey Ink Die & Stamps, Martha Stewart Punch, Theresa Collins paper icons, Kaiser Craft pre made cards, Maya Roads Glimmer Mist & Hessian Ribbon & Twine, Memory Box dies.

I hope everyone has had a fantastic start to the weekend, It was quite a warm day here in Sunny Queensland   and already I miss spring the next few months are going to be a hot one.

Thank you also for your sweet comments, take care!!!
