High Hopes Gift Set


Oh today is a just worries me that this weather can't last too long this time of year. Oh well I guess we should enjoy it while we have it!!

Today I am sharing a card and gift bag I made for, my friend, Donna's Birthday. Both images are from High Hopes and I used my copics to color them. Aren't these little girls both so darn cute. I like them because they remind me of my little country girls when they where and all.

This is a closer look at this cute little gal with her lightning bugs in a jar. I did a little doodling around the image and added a little ladybug button in the corner....It is hard to find lightning bug buttons and charms but I thought a bug is a bug! I also put some crystal lacquer on the jar so it would look 'glassy'....and this little tiny button brad on her bibs.

Here we have the inside of the easel card. This sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I used this really cool loop punch from Martha. You can also see the little dragonfly charm hanging from the bow in this shot too.....yep a bug is a bug!!!

And here is the card and matching gift bag. Shhhhh! In the bag are some stamps.....what else do you give a stamper???

....and finally a close up of the bag. I added a leaf branch or two..... didn't want her to look like she was swinging from nowhere.

Stamps: High Hopes and Stampin' Up
Paper: Stampin' Up and Paper Pizzazz
