Play Date Cafe Challenge

I love the build up to Christmas especially if I am organised and have all my Christmas cards completed, which I have, so now I can just enjoy it, I just have a few little bits and bobs to buy but no pressure, yippeeeee!!!
I love the colour combination from The Play Date Cafe this week, red and white are so crisp and a wonderful colour combination for Christmas.
This week I decided to make a couple of small gift bags for Christmas.  I have used Tim's Carved Ornament die for one and the bird from the Caged Bird die on the other.  Both bags have been created from red felt and some white fabric I had lying around.  These would be great for jewellery or Christmas chocolates.
I also decided to create a co-ordinated card using the Outlines Poinsettia stamp, stamped twice on red card stock and adhered to give a 3D like appearance.  The red and white paper in the background is an old Creative Imaginations one, I think it was from last year.  I have added polka dot buttons to complete.  I am also going to add these pieces to Hels' Sunday Stamper Challenge where the theme is CHRISTMAS for this week.  Until the next time, Tracy x x x
