Birthday Gift Bag

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
This is a double post for House Mouse and Prickley Pear

So for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Lorraine's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Anything Goes." - So you can make anything, using anything, as long as you use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.  I made a gift bag for my mum's birthday chocs from Thorntons, as it's her Birthday on Wednesday.  She likes the Almond Marzipan bars, Yuk! but she loves them, they are just a little extra to her main pressie.

I used this great image Mice Cream Celebration HMUR1023, teamed with one of my favourite paper pads from LOTV, Shabby Shack.  I love altering paper gift bags

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

And now for my Design piece for Prickley Pear, there's lots more to see over on the Prickley Pear blog and lots of gorgeous stamps and dies over on their shop here:-

So for my creation I used:-

Stamps - House Mouse, Prickley Pear,
Papers - LOTV Shabby Shck, 
Colouring Mediums - Spectrum Noirs, 
Tools - Grand Calibur, signature dies, spellbinder dies, 
Embellishments - doily, bow, stickles, 

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting

Tracy, this bag itself is a lovely gift. Fun image for a gift bag and I adore your corner treatments. Your card is also as sweet as can be. Two wonderful items here. Enjoy your day.

Both projects are beautiful! I love the way you colored and glittered the butterflies on the card and paired them with that sentiment!
