A New Day

Well today has been quite the emotional day for this momma.  Today is my beautiful daughter Lindsay's 26th birthday and it is the first birthday of hers that we will have spent apart.  As most of you know, Lindsay moved three hours away and took a new job.  I'm happy for her and all that is ahead of her, but I sure do miss her and it's been especially hard to be away from her on her birthday.  As I was getting ready this morning to head to the health fair at our local hospital is reminded me that 26 years ago this morning I was headed to that very hospital to give birth to my first born.  Who would have thought where we would be all these years later.  She is a strong, confident, smart, young woman and we are so very proud of her.

I can tell you that I love being a mom and enjoy my girls very much.  They bring so much joy to my life each and every day.  I am very blessed, but I am also so very grateful, which leads into my project for today.

I made a gift bag using our new Stampin'Up! bag punch board.  I'm just getting to using this fun new product, but I think it is going to be great.

This little bag measures 4-3/4" tall by 2-3/4" wide  This would be a small size.  You can make a small, medium and large and the height can vary from 4" to 12".  I'm sure this little tool can do so much more and it's going to be fun discovering all that can be done with it. The Gift Bag Punch Board item number is 135862 and sells for $20.

I used the You've Got This stamp set and colored in the flower using Blender Pens and ink pads.  The colors are  Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush.  The bag itself was made using Mint Macaron.  I added a little strip of the Cherry on Top DSP and a piece of White 1-1/4" Jute Ribbon and one of our paper doilies.  The bag handles are the 1" Dotted Lace Trim also in the Mint Macaron.

Well I guess I've rambled enough for this afternoon.  Thanks for stopping by.
