Peachy keen Challenge #41

Hello everyone! Welcome to another super duper Peachy Keen challenge. 
This week, we want you to create a card using ENCOURAGEMENT as your theme. 
Remember, you are not obliged to use a PK stamp, but we would be VERY flattered if you did!

 We also have the pleasure of a guest designer with us this week.....

Mandy Ferg of the Polka Dot Spot!

 Wowee!!! You really MUST go and visit her blog. Her cards are just amazing!!!

There are so many people out there who are still without work, caring for sick relatives, or
simply going through major changes in their lives. A card is the perfect way to brighten someone's day!

One randomly chosen winner will receive PK-412, Too Sweet to Eat and Set A, Spica pens, shown here...

A Brilliant prize for one lucky winner!

Here is what I did for the challenge.... 
(I thought maybe, someone feeling poorly or down at heart, might enjoy a bag of gingerbread).

Fully closed
 (It closes with Velcro coins)

 Partially opened

 Fully opened
 Stamps used......
Coloured with Copics (of course).

The DP is from SU and the mittens are courtesy of Spellbinders Nestabilities.
The gift bag is another paper engineered envelope! 
(Love making these! SO easy yet so effective).
I hope you like my gift bag. If you do, I KNOW you are going to be blown away by my amazing DT Sistas!!
They always do wonderful work ,but this week, they have worked wonders!
Please pop on over to the Peachy Keen blog, see their wonderful creations and join in with the challenge.
See you soon I hope!
