Power Poppy and the Bloom Brigade have a fantastic challenge for us this month. Every day they bring a new craft to the blog. Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge.
If you follow my blog, I have been busy today with two posts. Yes, I could not sleep last night, so what better thing to do than a challenge. I decided to so a gift bag as I will be needing many this year. Daught is sending gifts here to Florida, as they will be joining us here for the holidays. I, of course offered to warp every last one of them. (What was I thinking?)
Sorry, I digress. Here is the gift bag that I made and decorated.
make a bag from gift wrap.
I have a shiny gift wrap that is gold and has black and green plaid pattern in it. I added the green gemstones to the top and the Stitched Tunnel tag from Memory box. The tag is stamped and colored using the new stamp set from Power Poppy called Under Glass. The bow also works as a closing for this bag. Fun, Fun Fun!
OK, I am done for today, but I think that I will be back for another day with this challenge.
Thanks fo stopping by, I love your comments.

All in Red or White with an optional pop of green, that is the idea behind this gorgeous mood board. See for yourself.
This board along with all of the teams fun designs have motivated me to get out card stock and play along. I loved that hearts in the top left corner and that was what inspired my card.
I used a die that looked close to the hearts on the mood board. It is from Simon Says Stamps and has a matching die. It is called Roses for You. I was also very anxious to use a new die that I got recently from Penny Black, Antique Frame. I cut it three times and used foam tape between layers. Then I wanted a pop of green so I searched out my IO Fern dies and added them to the front. For the hearts, I colored the bottom half of the heart with my red marker and added small dots with my white gell pen. A few snowflake sequins from my stash and it was done.
I will be entering this one in the Double D Challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and leaving a comment. I much appreciate it especially on this card. You see I have brought my craft supplies with me to Florida and I can't find a thing! It's a miracle that I got this one done, at 2 a.m.
