Late for Mother's Day...

I didn't have a chance to post this earlier, but better late than never, right? :)  I created this Mother's Day card and gift bag for my Mother-in-law. She's a super lady! It's so nice to have great in-laws!  My Mother-in-law loves cats - so what better to use on her card than Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers paper? I started with a bag I got when I purchased some hair products and turned it into a gift bag to match the card.

The original bag:

The bag after I added to it:

I love to reuse random things like this bag and make them look better.  :)  Thanks for stopping by.

supplies: Basic Grey Max & Whiskers paper, Hero Arts notecard, Stampendous stamps, Fiskars border punches, Perfect pearls, Martha Stewart heart punch, Tim Holtz distress inks
