The Magic Of Christmas...

Hi folks...I'm back in the cubbyhole with my hop-a-long Furry side-kick for company...he's feeling much better but a little bit stir crazy only getting 2 short strolls a day instead of his usual hour long 3 times a day racing around like a lunatic excursions...I have to say I'm missing the daily exercise too...crikey 2 weeks of this and there may well not be enough room in the cubbyhole for both of us.
And while the Furry Boy's been snoozing the day away I've been having fun with the gorgeous "Magic Of Christmas" Collection from Craftwork Cards...a cheeky sneaky peek of my DT project for Saturday's blog post...
and with some of the left over bits and pieces I couldn't resist decorating a Kraft Gift Bag...hang on to your galluses are about to witness my "Less Is More...Seriously...Are You Having a Laugh" Project...
I certainly went to town on this one...using my favourite Fiskars Squeeze Punch to create hexagons from all of the papers in the Magic of Christmas Paper Pad..faux stitching to create the patchwork effect..a tag from the Tag Pad...a couple of  Toppers...Candi and loads and loads of glossy and enamel accents finished with a double bow made with the beautiful Venetian Christmas Red Seam Binding from the Ribbon Girl.

Not my usual style but it's growing on me...why not decorate a bag and fill it with Craftwork Cards goodies...the perfect Christmas gift for a crafty chum.
And talking of crafty chums...I'm off on a jolly today to meet up with someone special that I haven't seen since the fabulous Tim Holtz event in Coventry last year...looking forward to coffee lunch and lots of "catching up" chatting.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
