Not a Card

Happy Friday Friends,
Hope everyone survived another week lol. So I was wondering how some of you get such great pictures of your projects on line. A friend suggested a lightbox for photos, I was thinking of getting one, any comments on this? Would love to hear from you if you use one and how it works for you.

Today's post is not a card. I know shock! Delightful Challenges has a challenge this week called:
Valentine's, Anything But  A Card. So here is my creation.

It is a wine gift bag. I just bought a plain brown paper gift bag, took out the blue ribbon handles and made it my own. I used a digital stamp from Digital Delights that was actually a freebie, called Tree of Love. How cute is that. I colored it using Copics, added some stickles for sparkle. All the paper used was actually in my scrap box of paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lace border. Embossed the heart with one of my many folders and did the to and from tag with a Marvy punch and Great Impressions stamp. All it needs now is a bottle of wine or champagne perhaps.....

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend. I am actually attending a card class at a local shop here on Saturday with my sister. If we stop talking long enough in class we may actually learn something hahaha, I love spending time with my sisters!

How cute is this bag? I love it! Thanks for playing along with Delightful Challenges! My husband bought me a light box for Christmas from Amazon.com. I love it because it all folds up.
