Cupcake Craft Challenge # 44 - Father's Day...More than a Card!

Well, here we are Monday again...the start of a new week which also means another new challenge for you over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog! This week it's Jeannette's turn to set the challenge and this is the brief she gave the design team:

"As it's getting close to Fathers Day I thought a Fathers Day card would be appropriate, but there's a slight twist in that it has to be more than a card. You can interpret that any way you want to. If it's not Fathers Day in your neck of the woods then a card for a Man (any man) will do!"

Seeing as I've already made hubby's cards from the kids and we've already bought his present I thought I'd make him a little extra something that is edible...he loves choc chip cookies so I have made this little gift bag containing his fav biscuits lol! The image is from the Digi Stamp Boutique and this one is called 'Just Snoozing' which has been coloured with promarkers and mounted onto a scalloped nestie. The ribbon is from my stash...very short and sweet....a bit like the biccies lol! TFL :)

Great Idea Donna, I don't know that the biscuits would have lasted long enough at my place, there would only have been crumbs left to put in the bag LOL.

Hey well done for getting the cookies in the bag and sealing it! I'd have been photographing an empty bag!

Great idea for a pressie and one I may rob from you!
