Happy Friday everyone. I hope you’ve all had a great week and are now looking forward to the weekend. Here in Wales everyone is hyper about the Six Nations Rugby match tomorrow against France when we are in with a chance of winning the Grand Slam (*whispers* I’m not a big rugby fan but will be keeping one eye on the TV just to see what happens). I’m sure Cardiff will be buzzing with all the fans from both nations supporting their teams.
I’m here this evening with a catch up post for this week’s charisma cardz challenge. This week it’s my turn to set the theme and I have chosen “alter it”, so I would like to see something altered to look different from it’s original state – whatever you do is up to you. I have very little time to create my project so I decided to alter a plain white gift bag (I know I’ve done this before but they are really very useful lol!). Here is my altered project:
and here is a photo of the bag before I altered it:
I used another new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Easter Rosie’, which is currently one of the offers of the month and available at the special prize of just £1.00. I also used the little egg images which come in the ‘Easter collection 2’ which again is available at a special prize at the moment. Why not pop over to the DSB shop and grab them while you can! I coloured the images with promarkers and the pretty papers are from the first edition ‘hideaway’ paper pad, it’s hard to tell but they are lovely and glittery. I did add a sentiment and a few more mini eggs on the back of my bag but forgot to take a picture d’oh!
Our sponsor this week is All That Scraps and one lucky winner will receive this amazing prize:
The design team have done an amazing job once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my altered bag into the following challenges:

I hope you will be able to join in with my challenge this week. Your entry doesn’t have to be anything too complicated (just look at my project) the main thing is to have fun! I look forward to seeing what you create. I would like to welcome my newest followers – Vicki and Tonya *waves hello*. Thanks for joining me ladies and I hope you will visit me often. I’m running late with my post for the winter wonderland challenge but hopefully I’ll get around to posting it tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.
