Sweet Lolli

Hi Everyone!
Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving??? I'm not. I guess since I'm not going home this weekend, I'm not in the mood. Plus I have to work the day after Thanksgiving- which is my normal shopping day- yes I'm the crazy one who goes out on Black Friday and buys the majority of my Christmas gifts.... but not this year. I guess it doesn't matter since the last time I spent Black Friday in Hilo, I pretty much finished all my shopping by 10:00am.
OK- enough grumbling... on to the post!
I forgot to post this goodie bag/card combo earlier. When Lolli Anya first came in, I had to make something with her- she's really cute yah? It was right after the first Craft Night at Island Scrapbooking, where Donna asked me how I add the white highlights into hair. I really didn't know how to do that, so Donna inspired me to figure it out. I'm really junk at hair, so this was definitely a challenge for me!
I made the card first... I chickened out and didn't leave the highlighted area white...
Then I decided to make the matching bag... I got braver here and tried to leave the highlights white. I guess it looks better from far away.
Supplies:
Lolli Anya- TGF
DP- Doodlebug Designs
Markers- Copics
Stickles
Cardstock- Bazzil
Swiss dots embossing folder- Cuttlebug
Lace border punch- Martha Stewart
Merry Christmas sentiment- IS custom laser cut
Well, hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! I'm just glad I don't have to cook the turkey!
