P is for ????? ABC Christmas Challenge - Come play!

Good Morning and happy ABC Christmas Challenge day

What an awesome fortnight we had last challenge a fantastical 110 entries!
Wooo hooooo!!! AWESOME!
 Sure hope you all play along this week too!

It's my turn to host the challenge and I have a fun one I think I hope that will help you prepare for Christmas and get you thinking I have picked a challenge that will also started you thinking about your presents and wrapping for Christmas!

Soooo this fortnight's challenge is:

P is for Christmas Presents, Christmas Packaging
with a Inspiration photo.

Please make a gift
or a gift box
Gift bag or Gift card or Tag!
using this photo for inspiration. 

We have 2 fabulous sponsors this week so that is double the prize fun!

Simon Says Stamp A $15 voucher

Stamp Fairy -3 digital images of the winner's choice.

I decided a that a Bracelet would be a fun present for one of my friends daughters as girls love these kinds of things so I used some memory wire so there are no catches to have to fiddle with...and also this was a great way to use up all the odds and ends of beads.
The Gift bag is from 1 sheet of A4 card and stamped in versamark and distress ink.
I have coloured this Cute Stamp Fairy image from the winter buttons collection
also coloured with distress inks.

and on the back punches and tied with this yummi star ribbon, and a cut done cuttlebug snowflake using some scraps from my scrap draw
and a single faux card candy button.

I reduced the size of the gift bag as I felt it was to tall for my project so this stands only 3½ inches tall :0)

Hope you will come and play this week there are load of options as to what you could make even a tag....

Here are a few challenges that also inspired me this week

You just have to come play this week! its only about 20 weeks to Christmas!
