Whimsy stamps new designer paper!

I love the way Michelle Wooderson puts things together and when I saw her holiday pouches I knew I had to give them a try. 
Michelle has the brown sacks to purchase in her Etsy store but I couldn't wait so I used a brown envelope which I stuck down and cut one end off.  I then used a Martha Stewart border punch for a decorative finish.
I have used the brand new Whimsy Stamps Designer Paper, this one is from the delicious Holiday Folly pack.  The images on the paper were hand drawn and coloured by Whimsy artist Crissy Armstrong and arranged by Whimsy graphics designer Ann Vento.  The images are the perfect size for cards and other small creations.  This paper is one of my favourites from the pack!  
I have also used Whimsy Stamps Winter Letter Seals for the sentiment on the clothes peg. 
The lace is from Bunny Zoe's crafts and the snowflakes and buttons I got from Michaels. 
I am entering this into Bunny Zoe's crafts challenge this week which is christmas -not a card!
Also, the sweet stamping challenge is snowflakes!

 Hoping to have time to get something else made today as we are planning a quiet weekend at home as most of the family are full of cold!  Only eldest daughter seems to have escaped it so far!
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend, thanks for dropping by!

Ooh, I love Michelle Wooderson's stuff, too! Very pretty pouch, great idea to just use a brown envelope - feeling inspired now! :)
