Happy Saturday and welcome to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. The challenge is Strings the Thing, so put on your thinking caps and get those creative juices flowing. Initially I was a bit stumped with this one, but then the ideas just started flowing and I hope you'll be inspired to join us this week.
I've had this little bag lying around for a while now and it came in so handy for this challenge. I've altered it into a little Thank You bag by cutting a piece of lilac cardstock for the front. Onto that I adhered some patterned paper and used a doily behind my gorgeous new Molly Bloom image, which is being showcased for the first time on my blog. Don't you just LOVE her ? She and a few of her other friends are newbies purchased from Which Craft in the UK. I was so impressed with the service I received that I'll be ordering some more Molly Blooms from Paula in future.
I've used some yellow string which I've threaded through a lovely purple button and have further decorated my bag with some flowers, ribbon and pearls. The border die is one of my new one's from Marianne Designs. The Thank You sentiment is a Fokus stamp, purchased from our local Merrypak store.
Our sponsor this week is Horseshoe Crafts. As I hadn't heard of them before, I went for a browse and you've just got to pay them a visit. Happy shopping!
Thanks for popping by for a visit. I'd love for you to leave a comment as I so enjoy reading them. Take care, hugs Sharon x
p.s. Not sure what the heck is going on with Blogger, but I am getting so annoyed, as I am unable to leave comments on the blogs I've been visiting. To the regulars I visit, please don't think I've been ignoring you... I've tried at least 3x on each blog, with NO succcess!! I hope Blogger gets his act together soon.... grrrr! [Edit 30 May : If you follow the instructions left by Lynn (Jimlynn) and Jennifer, you'll be sorted. Thanks ladies... I am able to leave comments now... shew!)
