Thanks a Bunch…

Hey guys! I am just under the wire for this week’s Timeless Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes. If you haven’t noticed, this is one of my favourite challenges, and I try really hard to play every week… but I missed last week! Bummer… so I wanted to be sure to play along this week!

This week, Heather challenged us to create anything but a card. I love creating anything I can out of paper, and I haven’t done anything other than cards and layouts in forever, so I was excited to get started!

I created a little gift bag (find the tutorial here) that would be perfect to give a sweet little thank you gift to someone…

I used one of the stamps from the Zinnias set to create my own patterned paper for the base of my bag, which (as you probably know) is one of my favourite things to do!

And then I also included a coloured image to dress up my sentiment label:

So that’s my take on the challenge… I had a lot of fun making this little bag – it was quick and easy. I can definitely see myself making more!

Thanks for coming by! I hope you have a great start to your week!
