Just playing around...

Hi there!  Happy Saturday evening.  I hope the weekend is going well for you so far.  I'm not doing too bad. I got to play a little (a lot less than I'd hoped) today.  But there is still the evening after dinner...

Anyway, I did make another Halloween Treat bag to play along with another couple of challenges.  I haven't played with ATS Wednesday challenge in way too long.  Also Sketches by Carly and then I found out that it's her last sketch.  That was heartbreaking news.  That little girl (I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate being called that) really inspires me.  And I'm also playing along with my friend Joni's challenge at Raise the Bar, Which is Witch?

So here's what I made, ATS said to many anything but a card, so I went with an envelope gift bag.  These are so easy to make.  A snip there and a few score lines with my handy dandy Scor-Pal and this bag was in the bag!


This is the front view.  I colored up a Sugarplums Witch in her stylin' witchy costume and then added an appropriate sentiment.  This bag was really easy to do.


And here's the side view so you can see, it really is a bag.  And who knew the yucky manila envelope would be the perfect color match for the paper that I used.  I don't even know where this paper came from.  Michael's I'm guessing.  My sister sent me some a looong time ago and this is what I had left.

I hope you enjoy my bagalope and you are inspired to make one, too.  Oh, yeah, I didn't come up with this idea all on my own.  I was inspired by ATS DT member and friend Sheri Gilson.  You can see her sweet creation here.
