Splendid gifting from Just Us Girls!

Just in time for my sweet Mama's birthday, we're JUGIFYING gift bags!

Such a sweet {and GREEN!} way to embellish a thoughtful gift or yummy treat...

And I'M playing along.... me, a KNOWN felon. My crime - perpetual re-gifter:
of gift bags! - I'll move a bag back and forth, four maybe FIVE times -
BIG AS YOU PLEASE! And I'm not ashamed to admit it, either!

Well, now, maybe THIS way,
I'll get the good ju-ju, since I EMBELLISHED it, myself.

{Maybe my middle name should be TARGET!}

Or NOT! - heh heh! Although, this bag is created, colored and embellished
thinking of my sweet, outdoorsy, nature lover of a mom - I didn't customize
it to the point of her specific name.... That way SHE can re-gift it, if she wishes! Shhh!

{It's ALL good, babies!}

So, won't you, won't you, WON'T you... PLAY ALONG WITH US!

Not ONLY is this a fun {and possibly addicting} challenge premise,
but it might help send you off to your next PARTY with a crafty bang!
Sweet, madame Paper Daydream, Dana, is hostessing this wonderful,
useful and utterly, utterly GENIUS way to make the object of your
affection and thoughtfulness REALLY know how special he or she is!
We CAN'T wait to see what YOU come up with! For even MORE and
completely darling inspiration, check out the rest of our fine team
of "bag ladies!" Hee Hee - {We're good with that!}

Glad I read the comments I was gonna call 'em pheasants!!! LOL! This is the perfect bag for a nature lover for sure! Love how you water colored the main image with the rest of the crew marching along the bottom of the bag! You are so clever! Your Mom will not want to regift this beauty!!!

This is so pretty Elise! Love that bird image and how you embellished the bag with the bead fringe! Mom will love it (and so will many others I'm sure)!
