An Alternative Gift Bag!

I have made this bag as a gift for a dear friend following this pattern (Dots little Ditty Bag!) - I have made it a little taller so that I could get what I wanted into it and also added a flower brooch :-)

I am loving crochet!

The yarn is from here and a bargain!

The gift cards I had made at Moo - I love this store - everything is so professionally finished - check it out!

OK - back to the hook - I have a rather large afghan blanket on the go right now!

With love


Me best buddies son had a Birthday on the 22nd and he has a thing for anything reptilian!  Its certainly interesting going round to their home - Its amazing what you do for your kids, I would never have thought that me buddlet would agree to pets - now they have a Gecko, a Snake  and  a dog!

Anyhow I saw this stamp ages ago and knew it would be great for him so here's a card I made with it.
I have followed the sketch on Saturday Sketch - this was last weeks sketch - oops - forgot to post it in time! LOL.
DPs - Basic Grey - Wags and Whiskers
Stamp is from Magnolia coloured with watercolour pencils
Lots of Walnut stain distress ink and stickles
Sentiment is from craftwork cards

I have entered the card into the following challenges
Just Magnolia where the theme is Vintage
The Stampman Challenge and the Stampavie challenge who both have the same theme - Everything Goes
The Creative Cottage Challenge where the theme is Touchy Feely - lots of paper distressing and distress stickles!
Papertake Weekly where the theme is Cutie Patootie - hes a cutiepie - as is the recipient of the card! XX
