TCP Tuesday Challenge FUN!

Hello sweet people! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and is all geared up for the holidays---it's coming, ready or not! :) I'm trying to finish my Christmas cards so I will actually send them off early enough for people to enjoy for more than a couple days this year, haha! I only have a few stamps from The Cat's Pajamas, but I always love inking them up and have recently found that the TCP Tuesday challenges over at SCS are perfect inspiration for my weekly dose of meowy goodness! You don't even have to use TCP stamps, so if you wanna play too you can find all of the TCP Tuesday challenges HERE.
Below I made a card using their color challenge of RED-MARIGOLD-CHOCOLATE and I took their sketch challenge and used it for inspiration on my gift bag. Details on bag dimensions provided below for anyone interested in making their own gift bags with 2 pieces of 12x12 patterned paper.
Gift Bag Dimensions: 2 pieces 12x12 patterned paper. Trim 1" off one side of each piece of paper, then score each at 3" to form a 3" base and 8" in height.  Turn and score both pieces at 5 1/2" and 8 1/2", trim bottom pieces to make base, then tape both pieces securely and evenly together with a double sided adhesive.  You can use the 2 1" trimmed pieces for a bag handle if you wish. Then decorate as desired!
Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you will join My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas beginning on Wednesday, December 1st at wonderful Miss Emma's blog! As always, she will be having tons of inspiration and lots of fun and giveaways--lots of winners and lots of Christmas goodness!!! I can't wait!
