How About A Gift Bag For A Change

Hi all,
And welcome, it's a new month for Sir Stampalot and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.

At Sir Stampalot this month the theme is "Punch Away" So get out your punches and show us what you've got.  I have started decorating some paper bags and this one I have done as a Christmas gift bag.  My flowers and leaves are all done with punches.
We have sponsorship this Month from as always the wonderful Sir Stampalot,  We don't have the picture yet of the wonderful prize but i'm sure if you keep checking the challenge blog it will appear shortly.

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is also for the following challenges:-
1. Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer & Sparkle
2. Diva's By Design - Use Texture ( I used embossing as my texture)
3. My Mums Craft Shop - challenge 78 - Love is all around

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny Black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is "Animal Magic", So you can use any stamp with an animal on, for this challenge. I used "Team Effort 3980k", and I love this stamp it is my favourite.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Sir Stampalot, Letraset, Little Darlings, Joanna Sheen, and crimson Cloud.  Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!
Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules and put GDT after your name on the Linky.

Morning Tracy,

I think your bag makes a really nice change and it is so beautifully decorated as well, right down to the little bell.

The colour palette on your second card is very striking and that image is a real favourite of mine.

Really great DT pieces, hope you have a good Sunday.

Such a fun card Tracy. Your colour combo is dazzling Tracy and I love it. Your layout is super and I love the Bishy Barny Bee. My grand daughter loves them and has my son searching the hedgerow looking for them.
