Pretty in Pink

Hello everyone!! Do not be alarmed 'tis me with a crafty make!!

I made this little bag for a friend's daughter Katie, who loves to come and visit Surprise and has started to have riding lessons. It contained a pair of pink riding gloves and a mug with all sorts of native pony breeds on it...she loved it!!

The image and paper came from the Thelwell CD rom from Crafters Companion. I had a collection of those little paperback books when I was younger. I wonder what happened to them all?!!

Anyway while I have the chance I am off to play here

You know how kids are at Christmas time - ignore the present that you spent hours looking for and chasing down, just to play with the packaging? Well, dear friend, that would be me if I got a beautiful gift bag like this one:-) It's stunning! I keep going back for one more look!
Have blessed day,

Oh Sarah, that craft CD was MADE for you! How perfect and how cute are those wee illustrations. I can see there'll be more to come from that CD!! The paper is brilliant, with all the wee horse shoes on it. Love the paper gift bag idea too. You created something so special that I'm sure that little person will treasure. Love it! Hugs, Wends xoxo
