Gift Bag

There is no way I could use a purchased decorative gift bag when I am giving a gift and personal handmade card. So I buy the plain white and Kraft gift bags from Hobby Lobby. They are less than a dollar apiece when you use their coupons.
I spotted my first robin yesterday. And the tulips have popped their heads above ground. That means spring is soon here. WooHoo!! So I am definitely thinking spring. I used a digi by From The Heart and used Prismacolor pencils to make a robin and pink flowers. I think the label die is from Sizzix. To balance the image, I made a "river of grass" with a die from the Swirly Bird set by SU. Then punched out 2 colors of pink flowers and accented them with yellow centers of  Candy Dots from SU. The are then attached with glue dots.
I often use card sketches to decorate gift bags so I am submitting it to Tuesday Morning Sketches using this sketch inverted

  4. You are an inspiration for giving a the "whole package" when you give a gift, Donna! This is a beautiful bag which the recipient will never want to use again! Hugs, Darnell
