lawnscaping challnege - tags or treat bags

i hope everyone had a wonderful, family-filled and relaxing thanksgiving (if you're in the states, that is!). 
we're on our way back to south carolina today, and we're hoping to skip the traffic! lol!
in more exciting news - it's time for a new lawnscaping challenge! yahoo!!

and this is a super fun challenge - it's all about making bags or tags! how fun! and perfect for this time of year!

i decided to make a treat bag! i had a few ideas and they all came together like magic! lol!
i thought, wouldn't it be fun to have a rainbow yeti bringing sunshine to someone in need!
so that's what i did!

i paper pieced the yeti from yeti set go with some super FUN, bright and cheery papers!! then i popped him up on a handmade tag which i stuck on a slanted heart shaped doily!! super fun, right?!

i tied another twine bow at the bottom and stuck in some yellow pins (never used those before...but i have a ton! why?! lol!) i stamped the sentiment onto a banner from bannerific which i outlined with a copic and vwa-la! all done!

i think this is a super cute bag, and i love those little yellow gumballs of sunshine!

i hope this brightened your day, and inspired you to try your hand at creating a bag or tag for this challenge and for even more inspiration (if you can stand it!), check out the lawnscaping facebook page! we're dedicated to keeping your creative juices flowing! :)
