Peachy Keen Challenge #39!

We have something different for you this week ladies. ...... We want you to WRAP IT UP!!

'Create elements used in wrapping a gift.
Ideas for elements are: tags, gift wrap, gift card holders, and note cards'.

(I'm sure you'll think up lots more being the creative people that you are)!
We have a very talented guest designer for this challenge..
Lauren Brewer!
You really must check out her adorable projects!!

Well! Most of us, quite independently, decided on a Christmas theme for this challenge.
Emma and Nikki provided some diversity though, bless 'em!!
Well, my idea of wrapping it up was to make a Bag-a-Lope!!
(There are instructions on SCS and You Tube).
A bag is a wrapper..Right? *Silly grin*.
I'd got a packet of the right kind of envelope, so decided that another bit of ' Paper Engineering'
was in order.

These Snowmen are my absolute favourite and I just LOVE colouring them!!
They are from the set PK-329, 'Chill baby Chill'.
(This is going to get a lot of use in the next few weeks)!!

You can't see it on this photo, but I tore a piece of card into 'hills' and sponged Brilliance Sky Blue over the tops. This created a bit of a landscape that I covered in Martha Stewart Chunky Glitter.
I used Glamour Dust on the top of their hats and their buttons. 
I also used it for my snowflake. The 'snow' is made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I 'shmoozed' around the front of the bag with the Brilliance Sky Blue ink and added the large snowflake on the top. The cute face is from the set PK-543 'Snow Bitty Faces'. 

Please visit the Peachy Keen Challenge blog and see the treats that my friends on the DT have come up with!
We hope you'll play along too of course! There is always a fantastic prize on offer and you know you have to be in it to win it!

Have a great week!

Darling card, Viv :) I always giggle when I read paper engineering LOL! Have a great day!

Lorie said...

Oh, I can tell you love coloring these little guys, because you color them beautifully! This is seriously gorgeous, Viv!! The sparkles, and embossed background are the perfect accents to your cute little snowmen. I wouldn't care if there was a gift in this bag, or not! The bag itself would be gift enough! It's just wonderful, and so are you!

Love ya,
