Friends With Flair Friday {Christmas gift bag}

*** If you are Angela or anyone that works at Unity, don't look at this post! ***
(think that will work?)

I sent a box of goodies yesterday to the Unity offices and one of the things inside of it is this bag of raw Virginia peanuts that I fancied up with some stamps, ribbon and a little twine and sparkle.
(oh I really wish I had ironed that ribbon!)

the stamps I used are Welcome Winter, You & Yours and one by My Little Shoebox and Unity that had the snowflake die with it...but it's gone...BUT there is an Itty Bitty with the same snowflake right here.

here is a close up of the tag:
I hope you like it!

If you'd like to see all of the blogs that are part of Friends With Flair today, check out the Unity Blog, and also please play along with us, there are a couple of prizes up for grabs, every Friday!

Thanks for visiting and have an absolutely fabulous day!

OOOH WAIT!

Skipping Stones ~ Rustic Tiles Blog Hop & Sketch 102

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge # 102 and Rustic Tiles blog hop!
I am really enjoying playing along with the wonderful Skipping Stones team :)

Rustic Tiles is a versatile set, that you are about to see from the fabulous Design Team. 
If you just came from KAREN'S blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.

Now here is my card I made with Rustic Tiles....very loosely following the sketch.
You know how you start with a sketch and an idea in mind and then you start to make the card and then you go and make dinner and then you come back and do a little more and then you go and watch Dexter....and come back again???
No?
well the above card is what happens!
:)
Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all of the blogs.
Head over to Stephanie's blog for some more Skipping StonesDesign inspiration!

Have a FABULOUS day!
