Claudia's blog Candy!!

I made this Cute little gift bag with Claudia's Tutorial.....It was super easy and fun and gives you an extra entry into Claudia's Fabulous Blog Candy which you can learn more about right here!!

Claudia's Fabulous blog is called Pretty Pressings and all her creations are Totally Awesome!! (as if you all didn't know this already)

My oldest son's (James) birthday was on Sunday....(he is 32....where does the time go??). Anyway James has the most fabulous sense of humour and I knew he would get a kick out of this card...and he really did!! ...Yay!! ..he made my day!!

The tag of course goes inside the bag...with the fibres hanging out (it really looked quite cute) The bag was filled with Lindt Lindor chocolate balls.

Here's the recipe...

Claudia's Tutorial for bag.

Stamps....High Hopes................ Jungle leaves, Medicine Man, Wind up Mousie

All sentiments are computer generated.

Images are colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and Twinkling h20's.

Ink...Versafine black, old olive, close to cocoa, bashful blue

Paper...whisper white, really rust, Costco

Accessories.... fibres, metal coil, decorative scissors.

Thanks for looking Everyone! I will be back tomorrow with Birthday Blog Candy!!!
