Challenges galore!

Yeah! It's Wednesday! Thank goodness!
Only a couple more days til our weekend getaway!!!
I've got a lot to show you today as it's the SUINK Whachadoin' Wednesday Challenge and ATS challenge as well.
First I wanted to show you my colour combo cards from yesterday...
Real Red, Black, Kraft
This first one is a SU! Only card.
I used a fave set, Upsy Daisy!
Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: Real Red, Black, Kraft and Hostess dp pack; Inks: Real Red and Black; Accessories: SU scalloped edge punch, Black grosgrain, Dimensionals
Here is the second card I made using the Colour Combo....
I used the Santa from Sugarplum North Pole which is available from CC Designs at All That Scraps.
Stamps: Sugarplum North Pole; Cardstock: Real Red, Black, Kraft, Shimmery White and Hostess pack dp; Inks: Palette Noir Black; Accessories: Copics, Curvy Rectangle Nesties, ribbon, Liquid Applique, Glitter, Dimensionals
This week Jen challenged the girls to make something with acetate. Since I'd recently received the pillow box die from SU! I wanted to try these cute little treat holders. I filled mine with some Reeses Pieces...yummy eh?! I stamped the Reindeer from the Sugarplum North Pole in Palette Noir onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Then coloured with my Copics. We hope you will play along with us. Stop by the ATS blog later today to see the details!
Stamps: Sugarplum North Pole; Cardstock: Real Red, Shimmery White and Ski Slope DP; Inks: Palette Noir, Real Red; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Real Red Ribbon, Martha Snowflake punch, 1/2" circle punch, Acetate, Pillow Box Die, White Gel Pen, Reeses Pieces...YUM!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I made this card below? Well knowing the challenge coming up for today, I went ahead and made a little hot chocolate packet for Brian and I to take with us to the ski lodge this weekend! Last year I picked up these cute little Martha Stewart boxes and knew they'd come in handy some day! The outside was decorated with Frosty Days DP and stamps from the Aspen set by SUINK.
In the box is enough hot chocolate for two mugs, mini marshmellows, 4 peppermint hersey kisses and two mini candy canes....YUMMY!
Stop by the SUINK blog to see all the details of the challenge.
Ok just a couple more things to show...you sick of lookin' yet?
Last night while watching the OILERS KICK BUTT in hockey....I worked on these little bags using my new nesties! Aren't they cute? With the holidays fast approaching, I thought it would be nice to have some little bags ready to go for those last minute gifts if need be.
I made a boo boo with the first one....tried to use my Key Tag punch to do the handle and it jammed...ugh...so I used a nestie to cut it out to cover it up...that's why it's so close to the top.
Stamps: MFT Scarf for Three, Merry&Bright; Cardstock: Kraft, Shimmery White; Inks: Palette Noir Black, White Craft; Accessories: Sponges, Nesties, Martha Snowflake Punch, Martha Pearls, Copics, Regal Rose Ribbon, White Bags
Here is another cute little bag and pillow box treat that I made....
Stamps: Merry&Bright; Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Shimmery White, Pretty in Pink DP; Inks: Palette Noir Black, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: Copics, Acetate, Pillow Box Die, Nesties, Regal Rose Ribbon, Curvy Punch, Dimensionals, Sponges, White Bag
ETA: The white bags are little treat bags I picked up at Michael's and cut them down to fit inside the front and back panels....then taped together.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Holy Hannah that's a lot of stuff! I saw the last couple on SCS last night - love getting the sneak peek - heh. And you know, for Upsy Daisy being a fave of yours, I can't say that I remember seeing it a lot? - at least not as much as others like your BEEs. Love the little pillow boxes! Gonna try some too!

I love your bags. Is it just a plain white bag with the nesties glued in front and back, or is there a template for the bag too?
