Just Because

Oh boy---we are flooded here! The hurricane off the coast dumped TONS of rain in our area.....so much that the schools were closed yesterday! Yipes! (My youngest daughter was in a very good mood when she heard that she had off! Sigh!)

Here is a gift bag I created with some Gina K stamps- It was simple to dress up a plain white bag and make it FUN! I used Wild at Heart for the main image. I embossed it with white ep on black onyx cardstock. The result is almost like a painted texture. I cropped the image to fit it on the bag front. I simply added a few scallops, some decorative masking tape and a few rhinestone accents. Very simple.
The sentiment is from Fanciful Tags.

Thanks for stopping by!!

What an adorable bag. Great use of Mel's new set. Love it! Could you send some rain our way. We haven't had any since July and we need to badly. Hope you won;t have to build an ark! LOL!

Rain? What is this rain you talk of? Send it our way (maybe not the flooding part...just the rain part!)
