AYLI (DT) Anything But A Card

Hello chaps.  It's Thursday, but not any ordinary Thursday, it's my last Thursday and penultimate day  in my current job.  Tonight, a gang of us are hitting the town .......I may have a sore head tomorrow, which considering I don't drink shows my current state of mind, lol!

Anyhoo, Thursday also brings us a new challenge from the AS YOU LIKE IT team and this time it's
 ANYTHING BUT A CARD (and why - you must explain why it's your favourite style).



I love the excitement of receiving interestingly wrapped gifts, so I always try to make the effort to give in the same way.  I am really into gift bags and boxes at the moment, bags for the awkward shapes of course!






By the time this post is read, this gift bag may be looking a little weary as I am filling it with yummy biscuits for my department colleagues!

I have used
Tiddly Inks - Cookie Wryn (she was perfect for this)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils
Tonic oval dies
Crealies stitched rectangle die
Papers from Nitwits and the gingham is from Create & Craft
Martha Stewart border and corner punches
L'il Inkers bow die
Purple gems/dots from Papermania



The sponsor of this challenge is
Lawn Fawn
A stamp set and 6x6 pad of the winner’s choice
Lawn Fawn





Looking forward to seeing all your non-card makes!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx
