October SOTM blog hop

Here we are in the last quarter of 2010. The beginning of the busy Holiday season.  First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and before we know it Christmas and the New Year. EVERY year I say I am going to finish my Christmas cards early and EVERY year, I am scampering last minute to get them done. Maybe this will be THE year, but I'm not holding my breath...  ;)  


It's a good thing I got to play with the OCT SOTM early. Once again, this was not a stamp set I looked at and said...OH I HAVE to have this one....but after playing with it...I LOVE it. I have been giving out more and more gift cards for the younger nieces and nephews.  A gift card always fits!  This little bag is the perfect size to slip a gift card into.  I made it with the 2/4/6/8 pattern adjusting it to 1/4/5/8. You can't even tell from the picture that it's a gift bag, but it is.  I used the Creative Basics BGTP and ribbon. I could easily adapt this for a card front instead.



On to the BLOG HOP!!!  I really look forward to waking up in the morning and checking out everyone's artwork!  You probably came here from Debra Van Pattens' blog. Next you can follow along by hopping over to Brae Montgomery's blogEnjoy all of the wonderful artwork from this talented bunch of women!!!
