Roses Challenge


Hello, it's the last Sunday of the month and time for another Rose's Challenge. This month Sue ask us to make a gift bag. Or rather to decorate the one she sent us. We were to use the felt and ribbon she sent and the rest was optional. I also added the design paper she sent after I punched the sides with a Martha Stewart punch. The stars are some Selma sent me for my birthday. I had the cake and other stick on's so added those, and stamped on my bag. This is the first bag I can remember ever decorating. Not sure if I liked doing it or not but it was a challenge and got me out of my box so guess it worked LOL. Thanks Sue. I cut the felt out with a swirl die from Sizzex. Next month it's Kym's turn. Yall have a good one and I'm not sure when I'll return. It's been crazy around here with Bill's health and Tommy and his family coming in Tue. I'll try to check and comment when I can being I get up so early before the world starts LOL but dout if I stamp any.

Hey Olga! Wow -- the swirls are made of the felt -- I though they were stamped. I like how you punched the edges of the starry paper -- wish I had thought of that!! Great job of getting out of your box and into a bag!!
