Peachy Keen Project & Winner

Hello Everyone. I have a fun holiday mini project for you today...and the winner from Flaunt It Friday Hop (but you'll have to wait a little longer for that :). After reading Peachy Keens latest challenge, I got my brain out of its current funk and decided to create something slightly different. It is by no means a new idea but it isn't something we tend to do (at least I don't think). Well I decided to create my own gift wrapping made out of thin kraft paper (lunch bag material).

Picture 1: I used Smiley Cards Cartridge for the whole project

Picture 2: I used cricut markers to create the design.
I used several of the Everyday Faces from Peachy Keen Stamps.
The paper is approx size 12x12
Picture 3: Just for a little extra, I sparkled up the little bows on the gingerbread

Picture 4: I decided to make a companion card for the receiver of the gift. 
Card - 4inches
Gingerbread Man - 2.5inches
Peachy Keen Stamps - Everyday Faces

Picture 5: Inside Sentiment "We Believe in Santa"

I'm playing along with:
Peachy Keen Stamps: Let's Face It Friday - Paper Bag Challenge
Getting Cricky with K Andrew - Simply Charming
Fantabulous Cricut - Gifts Galore
Cricut Cardz Challenge - Circle Shaped Card/Christmas Theme
GabyAbby Challenge with SEI - Glitter It Up

And now for the winner from FIF's Hop ....... MARY from KRAFTING MAMA.  Mary please contact me by the 15th of December. I can't find your email so I will wait for you.

Don't forget about our 2Day Holiday Hop coming up on Friday, Dec 10th. There will be 20+ ideas to get your creative juices going. Click on my badge for all info.
