The challenge this week over at SWU is to create anything but a card! I also eventually managed to do last weeks sketch challenge, but too late to enter before Zoe got this weeks challenge up on the blog!!
After looking at the fabulous DT samples - here is what I came up with for this weeks challenge...
Bag template from melstampz (fabulous blog that's full of inspiration!)
Holiday Treasures papers; "Paris in the Spring" stamp set; Olive green Staz-on ink pad; earth Elements watercolour Wonders; Whisper White & Old Olive card; Oval punches; Old Olive gross grain ribbon.
The bag is filled with some chocolate bars that I have covered with Old Olive card & Old Olive DS paper set( just retired); old olive ribbon; sentiment from "Yummy" stamp set. I borrowed this idea for these from Mrs Wonkas, SU "Chocolate class" some months ago! I have made quite a few up to give as a thank you to those ladies who come to my SU party on Thursday evening!
Sorry the picture quality isn't too good- think I get too close when taking piccies- they look ok till you click on them on the blog!!
Last weeks challenge sketch:
Seasons of Joy stamp set; Olive Green Staz-on ink pad; Holiday Treasures papers; Ruby Red, Whisper white & Old Olive card; foam pads & glitter glue.
Elements on main panel were raised with foam pads & Old Olive card stamped with small poinsettia stamp and then highlighted with glitter glue.
I have been caressing my new SU catalogue yet again this weekend- my wish list is growing by the minute! I was lucky to go along to Natalie & Zoe's launch evening last Thurs, and got to see some of the new goodies first hand- thanks ladies for a great evening!
I hope you are all having a great weekend- how quickly it goes by and then its Monday again & back to work!
Oh well, see you soon..
