Snow Bag

Hey everyone....just a quick side note before I get to the bag...this will be my last post for a few days, probably till late next week. {Unless my sweet hubby will agree to run back and forth bringing me stamping supplies, setting up a lap table to stamp on and taking and editing photos...hmmm...I think I will not be posting anything! :) }...i mean really, is it so much to ask for...he's already working from home, picking up all the slack from me and tending to all my post surgery needs! :) Oh well!...a girl can dream!! Anyway...I am going in on Thursday for foot surgery...I am having a bunion removed (pretty routine, so says the doctor) I have to be completely off my feet for 5 days and then take it easy for 2 weeks. The good news is that after that I should be able to wear close toed shoes again...I haven't done that for a year or more!!! It's exciting stuff...wish me luck!
Ok...on to the bag!!! I am going to make this cute little bag with my Stamp Club ladies tonight! I think these are so cute and fun....and pretty simple! You just cut a couple of pieces of cardstock and stick them to a lunch sack. I cut the lunch sack down a little...I think I did 6 1/2 inches. The cardstock is 5 3/4 x 8 inches. I colored in my image with blender pens and used a leftover icicle I had made a while back. It's made with crystal effects and glitter embossing powder. I cut out my own handle but you could also use a word window punch! I also stamped on the tissue paper, cuz it's cuter that way! Thanks for stopping by...ya'll that come and check out my blog are awesome!! :) Have a fabulous week!!!
what's in it?...
stamps...Big on Christmas, Snow Flurries

paper...bashful blue textured, whisper white

ink...bashful blue, black, real red, wild wasabi, only orange

accessories...white lunchbag, crystal effects, glitter ep, sticker from Winter Bright SS Kit, red, blue, wild wasabi, yellow, pink & blue gingham ribbon

Too bad I can't jet on over this time Tara--I would bring you your stamps and stuff. Well maybe not, but it is fun to say. I WOULD however play a little cards with you and that you can believe. Good luck, hope all goes well and tell Shawn to do all the hard work--oh wait you're already good at that. lol.
