Getting Gifty!

Hello and happy Tuesday!
The challenge at There She Goes this week is Getting Gifty (TSG79), and our host is Natalie! Her's how she describes it:
About this time of year I start thinking about fun little ways to let family and friends
know I am thinking of them. It could be as simple as a little bag of candy with a handmade tag,
or a handmade card...there is really no bad way to tell someone you care :)
So my challenge for you is to create something 'gifty'
It doesn't have to be elaborate. It can be a tag, gift bag, ornament, card...pretty much anything goes :)
What an easy challenge right!

I say it's definitely a fun one! I decided to make a card that holds a bookmark in a pocket - it's a perfect gift for just about anyone in my family :)
I stamped the images from the You're A Hoot! set, on OA journaling card (my bookmark), and popped the owlies up on my pocket. Aren't they adorable??



Supplies: paper, journaling card: October Afternoon; stamps: There She Goes; ink: StazOn (Timber Brown), Versa Magic (Spanish Olive), ColorBox (Prussian Blue); ribbon, baker's twine available here; glitter: Reeves; sewing machine; buttons

I used the WMS21 sketch:
This project is also my Guest post today on the Really Reasonable Ribbon's blog, I hope you'll check it out! They've got a great Design Team, daily inspiration, fun challenges, and yummy ribbon in the RRR store :)

I also hope you'll take some time to play with our challenge. The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
To be eligible for the giveaway, make something 'gifty' and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (11-08-10).

One more thing before I leave you to it - there's some totally great news for all you TSG fans out there!
We have among us our very first TRENDIE! What's a Trendie? A Trendie is a Guest Designer. So, without further ado, I am tickled pink to welcome Christine Okken (otherwise known as ChristineChreations)!! Christine is an amazing artist who will surely bring her own flair to the team. Pop over to her blog and leave her a little welcome!
