L for Little Gifts

Good Morning! I don't seem to be around much on my blog these days, I am busy trying out some new activities. I've taken up Pilates and I have been busy knitting up a storm having gotten back into that the other year.
 
I don't plan to give up my paper crafts though and I hope to be blogging more again soon.  I'm back today to tell you about the new ABC Christmas Challenge that starts today. It is hard to believe that we are already halfway through the year but this time around we have reached the letter L and our them is
 
L for Little Gifts.
 
 
This time around I have borrowed/stolen an idea from my mom and created a little gift bag made from a paper lunch sack. The front of the bag has been embellished using a gorgeous snowflake stamp from Hero Arts. I've stamped it using Distress Inks and then embossed it with holographic embossing powder to give it lots of sparkle.

 
On the back of the gift bag I have added a little sentiment just to keep it from being too plain. Nice and simple and the perfect thing to tuck a little gift into come the holidays.
 
I do hope that you are now thinking about joining us for our challenge.
This time around we have generously be sponsored by
 
 
 
 
who have provided a $15 gift card for one lucky participant.
 
What are you waiting for, go create!
