Clean and Simple Gift Set

This will be my last post until Monday.  I will be serving on team for a women's retreat so tomorrow is packing day.  I'll be back on Monday with the SCS CAS challenge so be sure to check in.  I've been a bad blog hopper this week because I've been preparing everything for the weekend.  Hope my blogging friends will forgive me...I promise to catch up when I get back.....after resting for a day or so!  We don't get much sleep on these weekends.

This is a simple little card and gift bag I made for my secret friend on the weekend.  I'm so excited to be able to tell her that I've been praying for her for the last 6 months.

This whole set cost me less than $2!!  I got the paper at a church sale, the "D" stamp came from Michael's $1 spot, the felt swirly things on the bag came as a freebie in an order, bag and tag were in my stash.  You can't see it in the photo but there's a strip of black satin ribbon on the card as well as tied on the bag. 

Be sure to check my Etsy site...I've just added these awesome lined Kraft coffee tin bags.  Love them!  I used one for the bag I made for the May Arts Halloween challenge.    I love that I don't have to put my treats in a separate bag before I place it in the Kraft bag because they're lined!

Spaking of May Arts...they've got a Fall Decorating Challenge going on right now...Head on over and check out the details...you could win FREE ribbon!!

Paper - Neenah Classic Solar White, SU black, unknown DP
Stamps - Michael's, PTI Everyday Blessings
Ink - Versafine black
Accessories - gift bag, white tag, stick-on embellishment, satin ribbon, sewing machine

Pin It!
