Fussy and Fancy Challenge #226-"Winter/Christmas"

Good Friday morning fellow crafters!!

And how has everyone's week been so far...looking forward to a nice weekend?!

Today we begin a brand new challenge at Fussy and Fancy...our "Winter/Christmas" theme was chosen by our fabulous Gina!!  The perfect theme for getting a Christmas card done or winter birthday...sending a winter thought...or a gift bag for a friend!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
kraft bag and crocheted red wired ribbon is from Michaels...
DP is Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays"...
the pine cones and berries are from my stash...
"Merry Christmas" is stamped on a tag punched from DP...
the poinsettias were made using a Spellbinders poinsettia die and Foamiran...
the pine cone charms are from The Ribbon Girl I think...
I've really missed colouring up My Besties so I grabbed this little beauty from one of Sherri's newer can find her HERE...
image is coloured with my copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage....
hearts, eyes, lips and buttons are accented with Glossy Accents...
I sprinkled Glamour Dust on the fur trim...
the bow was made using some red crocheted wire ribbon from Michaels...
pine cones and berries are from my stash...

And there you have my first Christmas bag for this year!  Now come on over and join us at Fussy and Fancy...we DO LOVE to be inspired by you!!
