Mr & Mrs

Hi everyone - it's been a while since I posted!  Everything's good - I've just been really busy getting ready for a couple of DT postings, helping with our church lobster roll sale this week, going to church for Ash Wednesday - and, of course, working full time!    NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY!!

I do have a little bag to share that a co-worker asked me to make for a friend who had recently married.  I used my favorite little canvas bag from Pouch Mart, hand sewing a little ribbon along the top and adding a stamped tag tied with wrinkled seam tape and a little heart key charm.
 
The stamps are Love and Marriage from PTI as well as the Tag.  I attached the tag to the bag with a little pearl stick pin.
 
 She wanted to put a gift card inside - so I made a little card to hold it using the new Gift Card it Dies from Waltzingmouse.
Did you know the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party is coming on March 10th?  That's part of what I've been working on -  check out all the challenges here - so you'll be ready to link your projects on the 10th.

And - I'll be posting an adorable new spring template from Creations by AR on Tuesday, March 11th so I hope you'll check that out as well!

Stamps:  Love & Marriage - PTI
Paper:  Vintage Cream - PTI
Ink: Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass, Festive Berries
Accessories:  canvas bag - Pouchmart.com, foam dots, wrinkled seam tape - Prairie Bird Boutique Etsy Shop, Gift Card It Dies - Waltzingmouse, Corner Rounder - Zutter, key charm - Mark's Finest Papers, Tag Sale #3 die - PTI.
