Visions of Sugar Plums

Can you believe it is the first week in December!  I wish I had a Sugar Plum and I am talking about the liquid kind!!!

Cute Lori is the creator of Visions of Sugar Plums and I am so tickled that she has asked me to participate once again.  She knows how ditzy I am on the computer so let's just hope I get the information in correctly.

The prizes for today are being offered by:
Moonlighting by Mary
Studio Shine
Kitty Bee Designs

The Cutting Cafe

Be sure to go to Lori's blog here to make sure you are registered for a prize.

Here we go .....

I have made 3 paper bag cards - Dang I love those things!  You just cannot take yourself too seriously when working with a lunch bag.  In front of each bag is a tag with a little bow on it.



Now the Christmas card that goes in the paper bag.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas -  Thank you so much for visiting and leaving some sweet Christmas cheer.  I sure do appreciate it!

Wowzers, they look fantastic! You go girl!! You are rockin' it (around the Christmas tree!)

Myrna said...

WOW Sandy! I looked at the first bag, love it! Is the bow paper and if so is it a die? Then moved onto the second one. Loved it too. The cabin had me for that bag. We had gorgeous holly bushes in Iowa so always love holly! Third bag reminds me of all the snow outside. Cold, but still love snowmen! LOL
Awesome as usual Sandy! Always a treat to see what you've done!

Kelly Neis said...

You are so gifted with the paper bag card, really beautiful and well thought out. I love those snowmen, so cute! They all look great and so different, I love the crinkle noise they make, I still admire the one you gave me, it is so beautiful

They are completely and utterly charming, Sandy. I adore all the dangling hearts on the first one - the image of them dangling from the holiday greenery is a treat - and the tiny winter scene with the little house and its musical roof on the second is adorable! Lovely frosty colours on the final one of the trio - altogether an enchanting post, thank you!
