FMS315 and Inspired By #75 Snowy Gift Bag


Happy Monday, peeps!  Did you have a good weekend?!  Ours was a WHIRLWIND, it was all fun but I will be happy to chill a little bit today!  I have another gift bag I made for the hostess who invited us to dinner on Saturday night!  It uses the theme from Inspired by All the Little Things as well as the sketch from FMS:


I apologize for the poor photography, but it was a challenge to get a good picture!  


I used some retired holiday papers; the Swirly Scribble die in some pale green glimmer paper; a banner and some ice skates and a snowflake!  I added some sequins and some glimmery ribbon as well!

And here's what was inside the little bag:

 

My friend has a beautiful home and her favorite color is red!  I hoped she would like a little hand-knit Santa!  In hindsight, I wish I hadn't added the glitter, but she said she loved it!  If you'd like the pattern, you can find it at Garnstudio HERE.  I changed mine up a wee bit as I didn't have the right yarn for the beard, and I didn't felt mine, but I think he is still cute!  And speaking of Santa, he came a little early to Cassidy's house:


This is Eden!  Personally, I think she should be called Star...look at that little star on her chest!


Do you think Cassidy loves her?


Enjoy your day and be blessed!  And be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

I love everything about this post. The bag is so pretty, the Santa is so cute, and Eden...what a lovely name and she is the star for the day. Gorgeous color and markings. Did Cassidy have any idea?

What a pretty gift bag, love those little skates to bits! The gift inside is adorable, another of your many talents! Oh yes, I'm sure Cassidy is over the moon in love with this little one! Someone must have been a good girl this year ;)

Super pretty gift bag, LeAnne! Love the wreath and added skates! Perfect for your gift inside, too! OMGosh, Miss Cassidy got a puppy!!! I was so floored to see that and I bet she is over the moon happy! Eden is a lucky pup! Can't wait to see all the adventures those 2 go on! TFS and have a wonderful day! :)

LeAnne - Darling gift bag! I think I'll change up your design a bit for a New Years card, TFS! What I really have to say is how adorable is that new pup! Cassidy is a lucky girl. I'm sure we'll be seeing little Eden growing up over the next few months!

I'm am awash with warmth and love now, LeAnne! I oooohed when I saw your beautiful gift bag which is a gift unto itself, just gorgeous! And then my ooooh changed to aaaah when I saw the whimsical and fun knit Santa! And then my aaaah turned to awwwwwww when I saw Cassidy's new pup!! What a fantastic post to start my day!! (I agree with you about naming her Star!) Thank you for playing at Inspired By! Hugs, Darnell

Ooooh I love the gift bag - but the Santa inside is even more adorable. I so wish I could knit sufficiently well to create one. I'm going to check out that pattern and see if Rebecca can manage it as she's much more proficient than me! As for the puppy - sooooo cute!

Oh gosh, what’s sweeter than you pretty bag? That adorable little gnome, thanks for joining us at Inspired by all the little things.

The scribble die made a great wreath to hang your darling skates, snowflake, stars and banner from LeAnne. Thanks for sharing your gift bag with us at Inspired By All the Little Things.

Let's see. 1. LOVE the card! The papers, the swirl, the skates, the stars, the glitter... it's all perfect together! 2. The gnome is adorable and I think the glitter is great. 3. SO cute! The pix you posted over since then make it obvious that she and Cassidy are very happy together. :)
