WELCOME!!!! You are on the CardSwaps Sugar Crash Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Diana's blog. Wasn't it fun!!! She is so talented and such a sweet lady... If you didn't, you need to make sure you start at the beginning, which is Lora's blog. You don't want to miss any of the fun, do you?

Why hop around? Well, there are 16 stops on the hop where you can win a prize or pick up a free digital image or a cool sketch. The only way to win the prizes is to leave a comment on that blog AND it’s always nice to say thank you for freebies, too. PLUS, our blog hosts have worked very hard and we want to show a little love and appreciation.

You are invited to participate in the Sugar Crash Crop at CardSwaps, too. There are 10 challenges to be posted over the next 3 days (November 4-6, 2010) and EVERY challenge will have a winner. What’s the prize, you ask? A paper crafts books from CardMaker Magazine!! PLUS, one lucky crop participant will win a card making kit that makes 50 cards!!!! It’s very cool… you MUST play along.

I made this cute gift bag for my project today. I love Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and all her projects are so simple and cute!!! This is where I found this one HERE.

This is the perfect size for some yummy cookies or candy for that special person on Christmas or any occasion.
Here is a side view
On the tag I added some glitter to the snow flakes to give it some sparkle!!!
Deets:

Paper is Bo Bunny and SU cardstock, stamps, and die's from Papertrey Ink, punches are Martha Stewart, SU, nesties, bakers twin Martha Stewart, bells and silk ribbon from my stash.

I love the holiday season... It is so special this year for my husband and I as we are finally retired and can enjoy the season in our new cute little home in the mountains. I hope you all will have a wonderful holiday season where ever you are!!!

REMINDER... You have until 11:59PM CST, November 6, 2010, to post your comment on the blogs on the hop (that includes mine, please! Everyone that comments on my blog will be entered in to the drawing for a prize from me. In addition, if you want to participate in the challenges for the Sugar Crash Crop go check it out after the blog hop and upload your completed projects by 11:59PM CST, November 8, 2010.

  40. What a beautiful treat bag. With a bag like this, it would become difficult to give it away with cookies. Although it would be kind of difficult to give away the cookies as well. :D
    Thanks!
