Gift Bag...

I have recently made lots of these vintage style bags, they sold really well at the craft market and then I got an order for 10 at Christmas. I filled them with old fashioned boiled sweets and toffees.

Using the last bag I decided to join in with some challenges:-

Flonz Vintage Stamping Challenge - vintage with flowers
My lady is a flonz stamp, she is quite lovely.

In the Pink - Luscious Lace
The lace trim is from a stall on my local market called the Sewing Box.  This lady has such lovely ribbons and trims and is always interested what cardmakers are using.

Allsorts Challenge - Flower Power
The stamped flowers are tattered blooms from Heartfelt Creations stamps. I layered and coloured with distress inks, water and pencils.

Live Love Crafts - Something Old
My lady is vintage and I have had her a while.

Have a lovely Sunday - Neil and I are off to Church to the Mayors Civic Service, it will be cold!  Suzanne ~x~
