Show Us Your Metal at Winter Wonderland

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a fabulous week and are ready for an even more fabulous weekend.

I know my weekend will be FAB-U-LOUS Darling as I will be enjoying one of my Christmas pressies from my DH - we are off to see Strictly Come Dancing Live at the NIA tomorrow evening and I can hardly wait :o)

So as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at 

and this week the theme is 


I have kept my DT project nice and simple this week and made a little gift bag ready to fill with something scrummy for a loved one next month:

Here's what I used:
Design Paper: My Mind's Eye 'Lush - Red'
The wooden heart tag was one of many in a gorgeous gift box my beautiful friend Claire sent me for Christmas - thanks again hunnie I love it :o)
I added a Kaisercraft Rub-on to it 
Birdcage and Love word metal charms from The Hobby House - don't foregt to tune in to Create and Craft today at 10am and 2pm to see some gorgeous stash from them 
Ribbon and Button twine from stash

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely Snowflake teamies.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous 
offering 1 lucky winner 
£10 to spend in their online store

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for popping by - sorry if I've been MIA this week but with my DH away I have been spending time with Jack helping him with his revision for his mock exams this week and next week and helping him to relax too - yesterday we had a lovely trip down to The Mall - but he costs me a fortune - his favourite meal 'Nandos' and a new XBox 1 game - but he is worth it :o)

Hope to catch up with you later this evening - off to Pilates this morning.

Have a fabulous day.

Very pretty gift bag Debs, those papers are gorgeous. Sounds like a reward was well due for Jack. Hope he doesn't stress too much.

Hi Debs
Terrific bag. Love the paper and tag.
The NIA is not a million miles away from me so have a wonderful evening.
I had a peek at your family pics and quite spookily, your hubby looks a bit like mine! Even Mr Duck thought so.
Best wishes.
