Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #13: Mother Dear

This week at Tuesday Alchemy, we are celebrating our mothers or those special ladies that give us love & support.

I was excited to use an image from our sponsor, A Creative Need, for this project. I printed the image at it's exact size & I was surprised that it was SO big. I decided to go with it (saving ink, paper & time) and I created this delightful gift bag. It will be perfect for tucking a coffee gift inside! Think: gourmet coffee, biscotti & a gift card to mom's favorite coffee shop.

I sewed the edges of the printed image & another piece of heavy cardstock together before cutting out the coffee cup. I painted the sleeve a lovely French blue before adding the embellishes of flowers & bow.

Thank you, Eileen for both :) I like my new banner, too - Now I just need to make matching badges & buttons. Of course, I have so much going on right now that i definitely on the back burner at the moment.
