Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge

Happy Thursday, friends! The weekend is getting closer! What do you all have planned for the weekend? We are going to an apple orchard to the Johnny Appleseed Festival. We go every year and I can not wait to get an apple fritter! lol They have the best ones at Mapleside Farms. Yummmy!

So, today I made a little project for the Facebook challenge over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  They have a blog hop coming up this weekend! You won't want to miss it! The link to the Facebook event is HERE!

The challenge I am entering requires you to do something "EXTRA". If you make a card, it has to have an extra fold, or you have to decorate the inside, or something extra. I decided to make a little 3D purse/treat holder/gift bag. I'm going to put a couple of small fall stamp sets inside and give it to a friend. Here it is..

 I used the CTMH Artise Cricut cartridge and cut the little bag out at 3 1/4 inches. I used DCWV glitter cardstock for the purse and background orange paper. I colored the cute FBD digi image with EK Success colored pencils. Then I used stardust Stickles over the top for some added sparkle and fun! I only glued the image on the top part of the flap so the whole cute pumpkin house lifts up so you can put goodies inside. That's it!

The other day I received some goodies from Yolanda that I had won from the last Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop. Included in the goodies were some really fun muslin bags. Yolie had stamped on one and colored it in for that hop so I borrowed her idea. I used the Fresh Brewed Designs "Crafty Girl" stamp. I love her..she is so cute! I already posted this on Facebook but wanted to share here for all of my bloggie friends that I do not have on Facebook. Here it is~

I added a strip of fabric and twine and a homemade fabric flower  to the bottom with a glue gun. I added a few star buttons and some glitter and it's done! Hope you like it!!

I hope you like my projects I have to share today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
