Sweet Challenge

HI All,
Sweet Challenge at Joan's this week, instead of a card, we followed Selma's lovely example and made a candy bar gift holder. Check out the one that Selma made and she also posted a tutorial on how she made it. Very simple and then we were to decorate it up for the Holiday to come. Gee, that would not be Valentines day would it!!Following are the guide lines for the Challenge,
Here is what you need to do for Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #:4
■Create a (or several) cute Pouch
■Be as creative as you can using different embellishments
■Follow Selma's instructions
You will have until next Thursday (February 9) morning 6:00 AM EST to link your project.
You can enter more than once. A winner will be chosen from the Random Drawing for week #4 challenge and will be announced Friday February 10th. This winner will win a Webster Paper pack. The winner will also be entered in the end of the year $100 gift certificate drawing.
Below are the guidelines:

Short post today, VERY high Pain levels the last few days and I can barely function, so not posting too much information, used a few of the new Memory Box Dies, they have a whole new line out and they ARE GREAT. If Joan does not have them yet, I am sure she will soon and can order what you like, I got as a gift for being on a desingn team.

The new ones I used are, Jasmine Frame, squarish wreath type frame, Tender leaves, a few varying size leaves in this package, Fancy Blossoms, and Grove Branch. Then I used a few of their older ones, Scalloped Posie die, and Small pinwheel dies to make the little roses. My older ones I got all from Joans. Great place to get supplies.

That is all for now, hopefully more tomorrow when I am, praying the pain levels are a bit lower.

God Bless anyone else out there suffering with Fibromyalgia, I can so sympathise with you!!

Will show the first candy bar wrapper then the second will follow in a second post.
