I had to make a gift bag for some homemade choccies for my niece Stephanie so I thought that I would incorporate the Polkadoodles challenge 28 - 3 different papers and a stamp. The bag template was from "Cardmaking & Papercrafting" issue 72 magazine. I used 3 Jingle Jangle papers (Inside and outside the bag and the tag) and i stamped little stars on the tag. The paper ribbons from Jingle Jangles were ideal for joining the 2 stars together - just the right width.
I might need to make the stars a bit bigger next time to fit more choccies!!!

This is my entry for allsorts challenge 28, the theme this week is a Christmas carol or song title. I've chosen the song title "When you wish upon a star" from the Disney film Pinocchio.

I just loved the sketch and brown colour theme from polkadoodles this week. This gave me the perfect opportunity to use my scrummy new brown glitter and pearlised copper card. I'm still loving the Jingle Jangle papers, this brown one was perfect as the base for my card.

I though that i would share some more snowglobe and other Christmassy cards.
I thought this would be ideal for Allsorts challenge 27 I've been busy making snowglobes like this for all my nieces and nephews, the guys at work loved them so much i've been making some for them too.

I made this ornament adapted from an idea on "".
You need to cut six 5cm squares in your desired papers, using a 3.5cm square template score a diamond within each 5cm square, you should now have 4 pointed corners. Using a glue stick attach the squares together at the pointed corners. Before you seal up the ornament attach a ribbon or cord to the inside then continue to seal up the ornament.
I should say to decorate before putting it together, I learned the hard way!!!

Well firstly I can believe that i made 3rd place in challenge 21, thanks so much polka doodles.
Here's my entry for challenge 22, I'm still with the Xmas theme I'm afraid - i just love my Jingle Jangles cd rom. I cut out loads of holly leaves to make the wreath and used backing papers and sentiment from Jingle Jangles.

Well here goes for my first posting. This is my entry for the polka doodle week 21 challenge, i used one of the stampies and coloured in with some metalic gel pens. I never planned for the red/ blue colour scheme, it just happened.
