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