Kicking it Up!!

Today I have a fabulous card/gift bag design to share that I received from the lovely and talented Carolyn King, when she came by to treat me to a birthday lunch!

Woweee!! I love how she matched up my little zebra from "Jumping for Joy" with this red white and black party-themed stuff (she used part of the napkin like DP!), and I thought her "card on a bag" design was so clever! The little white bag is A2 sized so you just adhere your card to the front, to decorate the bag, and then lift to read what's written inside, is that not the cutest??!! The Zoo Brads are also from Gina K. She also made this adorable little cupcake topper with punches and a toothpick, the black gingham is the perfect touch. The bag contained some beautiful Basic Grey paper and oodles on embellishments she hand-picked to compliment all my stamp sets, and she left the party supplies with me so I could throw a little birthday celebration with my family later, it was all over the top fabuolous and thoughtful and I just loved it! I love you, Carolyn, thanks for your friendship and inspiration!! :)



Still more birthday cards and gifts to share, I was so blessed, stay tuned!
