Elzybelles fortnightly challenge time again...

It's that time again! Time for an Elzybelle challenge. This fortnight (don't you just love how british that sounds?!?!) we were challenged to create a Valentine treat or gift. Now I had to keep this fairly simple because you know what will happen when my daughter Jessika sees this right? I can just hear it now, "Moooommmmmm will you make them for all my friends?? Willllll yaaaaa, pleeeeeeease." Then my younger daughter will chime in with "For miiinnnnne toooooooo." And I won't be able to resist and the next thing you know I will be making 70 of these because if I make them for the girls then I gotta make them for Manny's class and you know what happened at Halloween when I made all of those scalloped punch peppermint pattie spiders, and my hand hurt for weeks afterwards. Anyway this is what I came up with. I used the Top Note Sizzix die to cut out the topper. The adorable little sheep is paper pieced then popped up. The tiny hearts needed a little glitter so I added a little bit of stickles. Make sure you check out what the rest of the design team did with this challenge. What I used:
From me to ewe Elzybell clear stamp set
Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Going Grey card stock
black Stazon, Close to Cocoa classic ink (for sponging)
slot punch
wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon
stickles

Debi I love your little treat bags! I love your brown and red also, very cute, but I love brown with about anything! These are the small clear bags from SU? I ordered some and have no idea what to do with them, because I wasn't expecting them to be that tiny...guess I should read the description! lol You have inspired me!! thanks!
