Delight in the Little Things!

Hello friends!

I have my final Free For All posting today for PaperWorksCo.  This week you'll begin to see the debut projects of the new DT for the coming term and I'm thrilled to say that I was asked to stay on for another term and am delighted to continue working with Peggy.

So I created this sweet gift bag card ... I don't know any official name for it so that's what I'm calling it!  LOL  I used the gorgeous decorated Kraft paper from Jillibean Soup and the Cosmo Cricket 'Garden Variety' papers.  The image is A Day in the Life of Abigail C ... 'Garden Fresh'.  I coloured with copics and matted the image with the circle nesties.  The sentiment is one I found recently in the $1.50 bin at Michaels ... isn't it lovely!  And what a great reminder to always 'delight in the little things'!!

Here's a picture of the card open and you'll see how the gift bag unfolds inside.

Another view of the inside.  I used a velcro dot to adhere the image circle down to the main panel of the card to keep it closed.  I will now probably stuff the bag with seed packets and keep it as a gift.  Maybe I'll use it as a teacher gift too!

Thanks for stopping in and if you haven't joined the Winter Wonderland blog hop you may want to and at the same time join in with my little candy that I have on offer!  You'll find my card and candy in the previous post.  You have until Thursday evening to still join in!

Well, I'm off to enjoy this gorgeous sunshine we're having today!  Take care and have a wonderful day!
