Well, here I am, another day that started our promising and productive and then I would up being in bed for close to 4 hrs. with another Vertigo episode.  I am pretty sure the antibiotics that I started last Weds. have decided to stop working b/c I don't think this should still be happening and tonight's was especially awful.  UGH!!

Anyway, I don't want to bore you with the details of my issues, so I will move on to more fun stuff, like the NEW CHALLENGE over at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY.  This challenge we are asking you to make a HOLIDAY GIFT - NO CARDS.  This week's challenge will last 3 weeks instead of the normal 2 weeks.  So, you have until late Tues., Dec. 28 EST to submit your project at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY BLOG.  You are not required to use DS4J images in your project, but we'd sure love to see them if you have them!  Also, we offer a monthly FREEBIE at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY SHOP.  Plus we'd love you to share your work at our DS4J CDAC GROUP as well as to come in and chat a bit:)

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY is having a DT call right now and we'd LOVE to have you join our fun team!!  You can find the details on DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY BLOG.

For my project today I made a bag that is loosely based on the tutorial I found here:  I used the measurements for the gift bag, but somehow managed to mangle and cut the paper, although eventually it turned out well, the process of assembling it was not pretty.

I chose this lovely DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY angel image this week.  I colored her with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut out using Nellie's die, decorated with Stickles and daubed edges with SU gable green.

I took pictures of the bag from all angles.  I am using it to give a necklace to my mother-in-law.  The paper is Kaisercradt and base is SU gareden green.  Lace is Webster's Pages.  Sentiment from C.C. Designs rubber stamp, stamped in SU gable green and cut with Nestie.  Hope you like it!!

Also, it has been entered for these challenges:
CREATIVE CARD CREW - anything goes
SCRAP CREATIONS - gift or wrapping
BUNNY ZOE'S CRAFTS - Christmas but no cards
  KARBER - digi and fantasy
THE PINK ELEPHANT - blue, green, red
SHABBY TEA ROOM - Holiday gift
