Linda's Birthday Bag

We've got a great friend that works with my husband who recently had a birthday, so here is what we came up with! I was really excited to have a "need" to make something fun for her and she really enjoyed it! Ok, so here goes, the bag was filled with 8 cards and here they are!

The designer paper used throughout is the Ginger Blossom paper from SU. The cardstock, cameo coral, groovy guava, river rock, very vanilla, and ruby red. I got the directions for the bag from Angie Juda, it's super easy and is just a piece of 12x12 paper. I also broke out some of my PTI stamps, the sentiments and the frames around the sentiments are PTI. I used the scallop and 1 3/8" circle punches, double stitched river rock ribbon, and brads from SU. The last card used the Embrace Life stamp set, also SU.
This card is just using the other side of the floral paper, gotta love double sided paper!

So, there is Linda's Birthday Bag! As soon as I get more on my "to do list" finished, I've got an idea for a baby bag in my head. My son's teacher is having a little girl, so I thought it would be fun to make her a little bag of baby thank you cards...so stay tuned!
