An easy card and a rag bag made from an upcycled skirt!

 I made this card for this months card club.  I used a Mojo Monday sketch.  I love how simple it was to put together, but still looks classy. 

I've been busy making more rag bag custom orders for friends.  This particular bag has become my all-time favorite I've made so far.  My friend requested Shabby Chic with Kacki, so I went with this fun color pallette of pastel pink and grey.  I actually upcycled an old kacki skirt that had been worn beyond it's wear... I even used the two back pockets as hidden pockets on the inside of this fun bag! (you see one in the bottom front panel there?!)  It was almost hard to hand this bag over, it's a good thing I was making it for a dear friend or else I don't think I could have brought myself to give it to her! :)

Happy Easter!

For my birthday last month I gave myself a gift I have found I don't have much of...time. I would love to be papercrafting every day or at least once a week, but other obligations have taken priority over my fun free time activities. This is what I created during that time. A fun "Hoppy Easter" banner to greet our guests with.
Here's a close-up of one of the bunnies.

This is the card I came up with for last month's card group I'm in. I love this new stamp set from Close To My Heart.
