3 digi images

prize 2 images

Now onto my project which features an image from the Bugaboo Sunbonnet range called
I decided to make both a gift bag and card using this image, I have coloured her with Graph It Markers, I used my EK Success to cut out the circles, the papers are from my stash, I added flowers, bows, sentiments, liquid pearls, resin flowers, lace, sentiments and punched butterflies 
The bag is actually recycled, my son often goes and gets a takeaway of some sort and when he had taken out all his food I noticed that this bag was like new and unstained so I thought I would do a bit of recycling.

I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:
I do hope that you have enjoyed your visit please do come back soon you are always welcome, don't forget to come join us at

Lorraine, so glad to be in the Lil' Patch DT with you! Your image and coloring takes me back to the days when my girls were young and loved all things Holly Hobby! Thanks for the walk down memory lane (they are both in their late 30s). No need to be gutted - honest mistakes are just that , , , honest and mistakes. I had one on the team, too. The post is up - and beautiful! Hugs, Cathy xx

MaryH said...

Wow, what an eye you have to see the possibilities in a take out bag! It certainly made an impressive look to create a bag for your beautiful card. Love how you used so many lovely items to enhance this cute image...both on the pretty card & it's matching bag. I'm with Stef H. - very inspirational work that you share with us. Thanks for that. Have a great Sunday. Hugs

This card is so sweet Lorraine. Lots of details to captivate the eye. I have always loved Bugaboo stamps and this one reminds me of my grandmother. She made lots of Sunbonnet Sue quilts and I have one.
