Just Cute Bears & Friends#41 Anything But a Card.

Good morning everyone. I hope your weekend is going well. Here in North East Scotland it's still not very nice. I hope this snow goes away soon. I'm supposed to be going out for a Christmas meal with my friends in the WRI on Wednesday and then again on the next Monday with the Guild. Both times we are going to hotels about 6 or 7 miles away but when you live in the country that can be a long difficult journey. So fingers crossed that the two meals take place. As I'm writing this on Saturday evening it sounds very wet outside but there's an awful lot of snow to shift and it's very cold.

But on to the challenge at Just Cute Bears & Friends. This is our last challenge before Christmas, we'll be back on the 2nd of January 2011 with our next one, so you've got lots of time to join us this time. We'd like you to make "Anything but a card."

I've made another little treat bag holder. I used a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers which is so simple that even I can do it lol! Here it is and I hope you like it. Sorry it's not a very good photo. I should have taken it at more of an angle so that you could see it's a treat bag holder.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black stamped onto Kraft card.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Martha Stewart edge punch and snowflake punch.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.

I hope you like it. These little treat bag holders are really quick to make so I think I'll probably make another one so that Poppy and Oliver can have one each.

I'm going to enter the following challenges :-
Penny Black :- Stamp on anything but white card.
Fussy and Fancy :- Anything but a card.
Totally Papercrafts :- Christmas Punches.
By the Cute and Girly :- Children.

Hope you like and if you've got time to pop over to Just Cute Bears and Friends you'll see the beautiful projects my talented teamies have made.

Thanks for looking and if you've got time to leave a comment I'd love to hear what you think. As usual I'll be popping over to your blogs to see what you've made, we had some lovely winter birthday cards for our last challenge and thanks everyone who entered.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
