IAAS Final Post for 2019

Good morning.  Today is our final challenge for 2019 at IAAS and it is "Anything But a Card".  This challenge will actually last for four weeks which means the DT can enjoy a break over Christmas, but we will be back in the New Year.

My Project

This is a very large bucket type bag measuring 12" tall x 7" wide and the base is 7" x 4". It closes with a velcro dot. You can get a very large gift in here - or lots of little ones. To look at you really wouldn't think it was made from cardstock,. The card stock is from a pad from The Works and only cost £3 so very good value for money. I made this from a tutorial on Mixed Up Crafts and I really love it.  I think I will be hard pressed to pass this on to somebody when the time comes. 

These are the sort of projects I used to make for my sister Jeanie because I knew she would love and appreciate them as I did.  She really was my number one fan! Just another reason why I miss her so much.

Why not pop over to the blog and check out the projects from the rest of the DT.  I know you won't be disappointed.

Well that's all from me. I hope you are getting on well with your cards and gifts.  I have my cards to write and a few special ones to make and just a couple of gifts to buy but we are off to do the last minute Christmas shopping on Tuesday and then if I have missed anything it will be too late ... lol! I actually thought I had finished but we will be visiting my nephew and his family on Boxing Day and there will be other people there I will need to give something to, but nothing too big or fancy.

Take care.
