Santa is just around the corner....

... I can almost hear his jingling bells :o).

Snow has gone for now, but may not be away for too long. I'm at the 'Oh who have I forgotten' stage, where panic sets in! At least I have 8 days (8 DAYS!!!) left to get the last bits n pieces.

I made my mum a bracelet for part of her Christmas, she can't wear metals as it breaks her out in a rash, but quite liked some glass bead bracelets I had made for myself. So I have made one for her and will pop it in with her pressie.

I needed something to put it in and found a wee gift bag template on Craft Stamper website.

This is the bag I made:
The stamp is by Ladybug Crafts Ink (Ruby). Isn't her Santa suit great! She is coloured with my Promarkers and glitzed up with glamour dust on all her fluffy bits (although they haven't photographed really well :o/ ). I added some tinsely ribbon round the top of the bag just to set it off.

I also added wee pearls to Ruby's coat for buttons and die cut some snowflakes, from blue card, with a cuttlebug die and covered them with glamour dust. There is a Christmas greeting of '...with love at Christmas Time' on the back with more die cut snowflakes.

I'd like to enter the above gift bag in the following challenges:

Ladybug Crafts Ink - Winter Wonderland
Moving Along with the Times - Let It Snow
Winter Wonderland - Wrap It Up!
