Super! Gift Bag

Happy Sunday!  And Happy NFL Sunday!  Just sitting here  multitasking -- watching my New England Patriots battle the Baltimore Ravens and blogging.   Not sure how much blogging I'm actually getting done!  LOL.

 I have finally been able to get back in the groove of things this past week and hopefully for good, crafting and otherwise.  2012 has not been the year I expected -- two surgeries, which have resulted in most of the last nine months recovering with a bit of traveling in between.  Tomorrow marks five weeks from the second (and hopefully last) surgery for a while.  I feel very lucky and blessed, as neither were life threatening nor due to anything life threatening and I had the best personal nurse, my Hubs (a real ER nurse by profession) sticking right by me through all of it.  And, with one month to go before a much anticipated birthday (50th) trip to NYC with my BFF (who shares my same birthday), I'm trying to just increase my energy and stay healthy.  

So let me get on with more important business --- crafting!  LOL

A cute and whimsical gift bag I made for one of the Moxie Fab World challenges using the Sweet Stop sketch.  I had a lot of fun with this one.  I love the little VW bug stamp.  So so cute!  The picture doesn't show it much, but I used the Cuttlebug large dot emboss folder on the background DP  and on the solid cardstock of the flower for texture.  For the Moxie Fab Movement challenge, I placed the paper ribbons and flourishes, along with the sentiment behind the car to resemble smoke or exhaust.


Stamps:  Car (Suzanne Carillo); Sentiment (Recollections).
Paper:  Red, Lime cardstocks; DP-Olivia (Basic Grey) & DCWV.
Ink:  Staz On Jet Black; Copics.
Extras:  Blossoms Framelits (Sizzix); Flourish die(Sizzix); large dot emboss folder(Cuttlebug); red button; decorative buttons.

Have a great week fellow crafters/bloggers!
