Wishing you Joy

Would anyone think that one piece of 12x12 paper could wish you joy? That's the House Mouse challenge. Go see for yourself -- there you will enjoy the DT contributions and can find a tutorial for this double pocket bag. It was a delight to make and I am so glad that House Mouse has set me to work on it. I purposely kept the coloring light because I wanted to create a delicate look to match the DCWV paper. My granddaughter will find this dangling from a Christmas tree branch so I had to be sure to make it cute and girly by adding the pink ribbon and the pink tissue paper stamped with mice footprints. Thus qualifying it also for the Cute and Girly challenge blog spot. And I am really branching out this time and offering this one up to C.R.A.F.T Challenge too -- both of these I would not have discovered had it not been for my blogging friend Lorraine. What will be placed inside these little gift pockets remains a mystery -- but I will be wishing her Joy. And I wish you Joy too as you make some of these for yourself.
Stamps: Stampa Rosa, Michael's $1, Stampabilities
