Merry!!

Off on a Monday...unusual for me but, Saturday was a seminar!! Actually, had to present. I know lots of you are okay with that but, it is not something I normally do and the last time was several years ago-- had a "minor" panic attack!! It's one thing to sit around a table and talk and quite another to stand up behind a podium!! I survived with no anxiety so, maybe I'm a grown up now LOL!!

Today I have a gift bag. MFT's weekly stamp club challenge this week was to make a gift bag. Christmas is coming and I usually make a few of these. Used one of the adorable PI's "Merry Kissmas". Stamped with memento tuxedo black, paper pieced the scarfs, colored with copics, and glittered the snowman or is that snowgirl?? Layered on  a large scallop nestie. The background paper is Tinsel & Twig {love this stuff}, added a lower border with the open scallop die-namic and some black pearls. Finally used my banner die-namic {tease Jody aka texasjodylynn on SCS} about suggesting that having several of these is great!! I gotta admit it would have been wonderful to have more than one. Added divine twine along the top and some ribbon on the handle. Here's the bag....

















A couple of close ups of the image and banner...

This is fabulous, Vickie! Always nice to have a unique gift bag for a gift :)

Congrats on the presentation and only having a "minor" attack LOL! The more you do the less stressful it is so well done on "growing up" in the speech department :D I'm sure your talk was great!
