Gift Card Holder and Gift Bag

I made this gift card holder and gift bag for a challenge over at Staying Crafty. It was my first time using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More download I got with my new Gypsy last month! I had fun doing this project. Not to mention I'm entering it in this challenge over at Staying Crafty . She is giving away the new Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge which just happens to be the only 1 of the new cartridges that I really want!

3. Post this challenge on Facebook to spread the word!

6.You have until October 15th to get your cards to me!

She had some fabulous prizes to give away!

Well I set out to make atleast 50 cards by October 15th. Then Scrapbook Queen was then kind enough to extend the challenge to October 25th! I needed a new goal! Well I set my goal at 75! In the end I had made 80 cards!

I am so proud of myself. I am new to card making so I learned a ton of new things! But the best thing of all is I got to know Theresa The Scrapbooking Queen through this challenge. I put a smile on some ladies faces and I also made a new friend! Can't beat that!

This is a picture of all my cards! There are only 68 here total but in the end it ended up being 80 cards!

Also stop by Theresa Harris a.k.a The Scrapbook Queen facebook page and see all the cards us ladies have made!!!
