Peace

Today I made a little treat bag using a PTI die and Hero Arts stamps.  It also fits into the current Hero Arts monthly contest, the details which you can see HERE.

Here is my little treat bag using the Christmas Reindeer set from Hero Arts.  Don't you just love this little guy!

Paper: cardstock (PTI; Neenah); designer paper (MME - 12 Days of Christmas)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Festive Berries DI
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL540; S5507)
Other: stickles; black enamel accent; glossy accent; PTI dies (favor box; snowflake); brad (unknown); dimensional tape

I may keep this for Natasha's teacher, at least that is one thing made!  He really is cute and you could do quite a lot with him, even rearrange the head and the back legs by cutting them off and repositioning them.

We are waiting for a storm to pass through here inthe next few hours, apparently!  Then it's going to cool down for a day or two, and OF COURSE, as luck would have it, it's going to warm right back up in time for our race on Sunday morning! Seriously, was that really necessary!  It feels so much better running in 43F than in 63F, believe me!  Oh well, c'est la vie!

Ok, let me go and see if I can get inspired to make something else!  Take care everyone!

My goodness Brenda you are on an amazing roll here. Whatever your drinking, make that a double for me! Lol. This is one of the most creative altered pieces that I have seen in a while. This really is beautiful and your coloring is splendid. Love how you added the buttons to the sweater. Such a clever gal you are! Lol. Thanks so much for sharing sweetie. Hugs.
