Shopping Our Stash #126

Good morning friends!  It's time for another great challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This week we want you to make a Thank You card.  Easy, right?  Yes, indeed!  So lets see what I came up with for you.

 First of all I used this adorable image from Tiddly Inks.  She is called Cocoa Wishes and I think she is so cute.  I really love all the Wryn images and have such a good time coloring them with my Prismacolor pencils.  This time I decided to print my image on Kraft card stock.
 Here you can see that I decorated the front of a white gift bag..  I used a Spellbinders die for the snowflakes and put a pearl in the middle of each.  The DP is MME (I think I always say that.  I do love their papers!).  I also used a Spellbinders die to cut out my image.  I used a die cut from K&Co. (which is my oldest stash item on this project) to embellish the bow.
 Here you can see that the image is on a card.  I adhered the card to the front of the bag.  I used the same Spellbinders set for the inside snowflake.  I made the sentiment on my computer and used a circle die to cut it out to fit the middle of the snowflake.
Here's the mug I purchased to go in the bag.  (Yes, it is actually too big.  I will be returning it to get a smaller one that fits.)  I also plan to add a bag of my homemade cocoa mix.  I think this will be a sweet Thank You gift for someone.

Now it's your turn.  Dig into your stash and join us for our "Thank You" challenge this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
