High Hopes Challenge #4

This week the High Hopes Challenge is brought to you by Nikki...and it is a fun one......"Make anything but a card"...and I so enjoyed making these little gift bags!! Be sure to check out the HH Blog to join in and see all the Divas Gorgeous Creations!!
The image I used on the dog biscuit bag is from the High Hopes New Release Stamps....it's called "Christmas Treat" I just love this image....3 of my children have dogs...so I have a few more to make.

This Cute little gingerbread man is one of High Hopes older stamps. I believe this is the "Med Gingerbread Man" They also have a small one and a larger one. This bag contains gingerbread cookies...(of course)...The little gingerbread man can also be used as an ornament or to hang on a peg or nail. I have an eyelet on top of him with a gold cord in it for hanging. I tied the ribbons over the cord to attach the ornament.

Both images are colored with prismacolor pencils and h20's. I used scribbles and glitter on Santa's fur and the gingerbread man's icing.

The woof stamp is a stamp I won in a Challenge...I think it is a Pink Kat Studio stamp.

Paper - GP white, and Michael's

Accessories - ribbon, scribbles, glitter, cellophane bags

Remember...you have till tomorrow night to enter my blog candy on the post below...I will announce the winner Tuesday morning!!

Also ....the High Hopes Blog Hop continues tomorrow...so check out all the Divas blogs to see who is offering more Fabulous blog candy!!

Thanks for looking everyone...and for all your Lovely comments!!!
