Guest Designer at Not Just Cards

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a good weekend.  It was my birthday on Saturday and I have been totally spoiled.  Went to see a Queen tribute band on Friday night, my girls treated me to lunch out on Saturday and I enjoyed a meal out with family and friends on Saturday night.  All in all,  a great weekend.  But now onto crafty matters.

A little while ago I was invited to be a guest designer at Not Just Cards challenge blog for the month of March.  I was delighted to be asked and today is my first challenge post with them.

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image from Robyns Fetish called Kitty Play.

I decided to decorate a little gift bag.  I love decorating gift bags as everyone has birthdays and presents look so much better in a lovely bag.  I coloured the image using promarkers and cut out using my lacy circle die.  To keep with the wool theme I threaded some wool around the holes on the outside of the die cut.  I created a little bow effect using wool too.  A sentiment and a flower finished the little bag.  Perfect for anyone with a knitting hobby.

Thanks for popping by and would love you to join in the challenge at Not Just Cards.
