Bridal Shower Oldie

Happy Thursday and Happy Oldie But Goodie Day with Bugaboo Stamps!

Here's a little ditty I put together for a bridal shower I went to.  I tried a little something different - I trimmed off the front edge a bit so I could decorate the inside edge - that's the reason there are two photos - this one is a photo of just the front

And this is a photo of the entire card (that blue edge is actually the inside of the card)

Coloring - Copics (C1, RV13, RV14, Y15, Y17, YG23, YG25 & YG17)

Happy Halloween Gift Bags!

After the cute Whimsie Doodles Halloween T's I've made this month, of course I had to come up with something equally as cute to package them in before I send them off!

Aside from crafty stores, I love making a stop at Target once a week or so - they always have fun stuff if you look around enough.  On my most recent trip, I found these Stripey Halloween Bags.

So, with this months Whimsie Doodles Halloween Hootenannies Gift Tags Release, I whipped up a few little gift tags to go on my Target Stripey Bags!

Turned out cute, didn't they?
