BUT.....you have to BELIEVE IN SANTA! Otherwise all of the above is obsolete. I did mention that I have been very good and I BELIEVE didn't I? (There is a big box with my name on it hidden in hubby's workshop and I think it is a Foiling Machine so I definitely believe!) Hopefully, it will not snow that night.......at least not here, as we are in the middle of summer and climate change is strange but not that strange please.
OK, I have been rambling, but as I cannot talk about the Ashes I had to talk about something.....
We are still midway through the challenge at Unstampabelles to
#75 Zentangle your way to Christmas....
TWIST make a non-traditional item
Prize: Random Number Draw
Emboss folder, diecut and some sparkle
I always need gift bags so that is what I ended up doing: putting a Zentangle I made onto a paper bag I had acquired whilst at the Dentist! It has the name of the practice underneath the drawing.
I saw the tangle on Pinterest and sort-off copied it a bit - as best I could
I used gold pens and pink and yellow pens with the fine black.
My stars are wobbly and my sweeps and swoops and swags are clunky and don't flow as well as they should but I was still quite pleased with my work so took the page out of my workbook and added to it a Christmas sentiment sticker - not a stamp!
Hubby was impressed.
It will hold a medium sized parcel/present
I have a back issue so standing and wrapping really puts me under pressure. I like using the bags as not only do they look good, I get rid of them, people often reuse them and they are easier to pack. People also have something to take the loot home with as well! Or, if you are the Grandson, take the loot to the bedroom and hide the candy!!!!
You have until the end of December to enter the challenge and it does not have to be a Christmas item!
