Baby it's cold outside...


...why am I making Christmas schtuff already? We all know that come December I'll have forgotten where I put it...






But there was actually a purpose to this li'l bag - you may have noticed I have a little, tiny obsession with October Afternoon...I buy the paper collections, use 'em til they run out {then buy more...}, but never, ever use the die-cut sheets. Why? They're lovely! I know they're lovely because I have a huge un-used pile of 'em...







So I thought I'd use some to make a li'l Chrimbo bag. I chopped a paper bag in half and set about decorating, kinda using the sketch over at the Secret Crafter challenge .


Then I realised I could tie it in with this week's Tilda & Friends challenge where we're magically turning our ATC's into sumfin else...go have a peeky here :) Mine became a li'l gift tag y'see...







I'll be back soonest with another card - I'm sure I scheduled it, but it seems I didn't. Must be the blondness...



Hugs,

I've spent the whole freakin' day singing the Fraggle Rock theme tune...why people, WHY??????

Oh wow, you have been busy - didn't think it had been that long since I last visited.

This is just gorgeous and I know what you mean about the die cuts, I have loads of them unused too !

This is stunning - will you be able to bear giving it away - that is the next question ?!!!
