Sweet Sugar Challenge!

Just so happens that the challenge this fortnight on Sweet Sugar Challenge is to make something other than a card! This fitted right in with my "try something different" mood!!

I've decorated a little gift bag with this pretty Nellie. The lace was some of the yummy stuff I found the other day...I stamped the autumn leaves "forever friends", coloured the card with Sea breeze versamagic, cut around it with scalloped scissors and then backed it onto felt (also from the "inheritance" stash!!). I then used matching velvet ribbon to make a loop around the bag handle! I used a hero arts stamp on 2 different colours of felt, cut them out and layered them and finished my handmade embellishment with a little papermania gemstone. I also stamped a few more swirls on this lovely autumn leaves paper! I had made a few more flowers to go on the bag, but it was just getting TOO they will keep for another day!

Then capturing it on camera to post was an altogether different matter! bx

A wonderful creation Bernie! Love the design, the colours and the cute Nellie.
You just cracked me up with your comment about my laundry pile..hihi
Actually I did manage to work off most of it... but there is new laundry every day, because Noel (8 month) just started to eat...argghhhh ;)
Have a wonderful weekend Bernie and thanks for all your lovely comments. I really appreciate them!
