'tis the season

Good afternoon! I'm posting today with a card inspired by CAS-ual Fridays (and Kristina's holiday card day 16)

It's a tic-tac-toe challenge, so I chose to use green, kraft, and chevrons:

I made the chevron pattern by adhering tape onto 4 kraft cardstock panels and sprinkling on some glitter. It doesn't look too sparkly in the pic, but it certainly is in person!
This must be a chevron weekend for me, since last night I made this little fabric pouch:

At work we are doing a Secret Santa-type thing called "Secret Angel," and we are supposed to give $1 gifts leading up to the big gift. $1?!?! What in the world can you give someone for a buck?

Well, the pouch ended up costing nothing to make, since I already had the fabric scraps and recently won a set of 25 zippers. Sweet! (oh yea, and don't bother asking for the pattern if you are interested in making the pouch. I didn't use one, and I didn't measure anything as I made it. Sorry!)

I just hope she likes handmade presents...because that's all she's getting! haha

Don't forget....the first Runway Inspired Challenge is on Tuesday! See you there!
