It's a girl! :)

Heya! How are you doing? I got to sleep a little bit longer today and it feels sooooo good! I'm still not used to getting up in the middle of the night (or so it feels), so I love those days that I can sleep in. :)

I'm expecting my brother really soon - he's coming for a coffee and chat - but before he shows up, I want to show you what I made recently.

A short while back a friend of mine asked me if I could make a baby gift bag for her, because one of her friends is expecting a baby girl. Of course I said yes. :) And here's the result ...

I had the perfect paper for this bag - a 12x12 sheet of paper from Sharon Ann's Baby girl collection. And I got to use one of my new Magnolia stamps - Delivery from heaven. I've been wanting to get my hands on this image for a while, but each time I checked it was sold out. So a friend of mine helped me get it. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

I used distress inks for coloring.

Since this was for a baby girl I used lots of lace, pearls and flowers. You know, those typical girly stuff. ;) They all came from my stash. And so did the charm.

For the bag handles I used sheer ribbon from Crafty ribbons.

I had a lot of fun making this bag and I hope that the lady for who this bag is made will like it.
