Starting my Christmas gift items

I am working really hard to not fall behind this year and get something handmade for each of my daughters teachers before Christmas. I have to make for 7 people so I really do not go too crazy but generally do a small gift card with some candles or chocolates or something like that.

A close up of the image itself
My first one I got done is this bag.  I got a set of 5 (so yes you will see more of these) and stamped one of my fav Mo Manning Images via Penny Black. I used my Memento Ink and colored with my Copics and used some Gold Stickle.  I plan to fill these with some treats and a gift card for Dunkin Donuts! Yeah one teacher 6 more to go.

I will be entering this into the following challenges:

Mo's Digital Pencil-Anything Goes
 Whoopsi Daisy-Sparkle and Shine
Anything but a Card-Sparkly/Shine
Fashionable Stamping-Alter Something
Outlawz Challenge-CAS-Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz-Bling
52 Christmas Throwdown-Anything but a Card
