Not a Birthday Card

Good Morning and Welcome.  Our Challenge at Make My Monday this week is ANYTHING BUT A CARD  so I thought I would share the 'Card' I made for the birthday of my friend, Anita.  We rarely make each other an actual card and prefer to make something else.
I decided to make a lavender bag using a Crafty Individuals Stamp and coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils.

The Back.
 

 
 

 
This is the 'Envelope' made from a page of one of our favourite catalogues,
I hope you like my project this week and will join in our challenge,
Have a great week,
Rosie x

  3. The lavender bag is beautiful, I just love the stamp you used. The way you have wrapped it is very clever and a great way to recycle catalogue pages. Anne x

  13. What a great idea for a non birthday card gift, love that you stamped on the fabric. Are you going to Birmingham? I hope to be there all three days, would love a coffee again xx

  14. Pretty, pretty! What a super idea, I have friend to whom I would like to give small birthday presents but a) feel that it is so difficult to identify what is the right present without spending a fortune and b) not embattassing them so they don't feel they have to buy me something. But a birthday 'card' with a longtime use is wonderful.

  18. A great alternative to a card and really beautifully done, love your "envelope" too. I would never have thought of using pencils on fabric, and I managed to pick up a tin of intense pencils at a bargain price from Hobbycraft a couple of weeks ago - I can see me sneaking off to my craftroom while Mr M is watching the rugby! Thanks for the inspiration. MMx
