I'm Back!! With Ally's Angels Challenge #29

Hello there dear crafty friends!!!

It's been SO LONG since I have posted!!  It's been a crazy year here and I finally found time and energy to colour...boy am I out of practice!!!

Come on over and join us at Ally's Angels with Challenge #29...as always it's "Anything Goes"!

I had the urge to work with one of my favourite stamp lines...House Mouse...I decided to make a gift bag for a friend...

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I started with a sliver bag...
added some Maja Design paper from the Christmas Season collection...
framed with some silver trim from Michaels...
the big red ribbon and red "Merry Christmas" ribbon is also from Michaels...
I stamped "Merry Christmas" with Stazon onto some chiffon ribbon...
this darling image is "Sock Hop" HMJR1004...
coloured with my copics...
closer view...
doesn't it just make you want to break into "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"??!!...

I had SO much fun colouring again...hoping that I can get back to the craft room on a regular basis!!

Now come on over and visit us at Ally's Angels for a chance to win Ally's wonderful prize!!
