House Mouse Christmas Gift Bag :-)

The House Mouse Monday Challenge have a lovely double pocket gift bag theme this week. The instructions for the bag are really easy to follow and the result is fab ! Well I like em :-) I will definitely be making more of these ,,, maybe smaller ones too to hang on the tree with choccies in ,,,, if I get round to it !! :-) The link for the bag is on the Challenge blog :-)



I made a bag and a christmas list post it note holder to pop in one side ,,, I was thinking of popping a pen and a small diary in the other side :-)

The stamps I used are House Mouse Rubber Stamp PARTY RIBBONS and HAVING A BALL





The images were coloured with copics, the frames were made with Nellie Sneddon multi frames. I used brown/purple coredinations and a little Basic Grey 'Girlfriend' paper. I added stickles and a few gems and that's about it ! Oh yes the 'Party' sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set. :-)

I am also entering this into the Cute and Girly Challenge whose theme is winter. I made a card already but they have different categories, this will be in the 'Creation category' :-)
It also qualifies for the C.R.A.F.T challenge whose theme is Christmas Gift :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Also I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
