Celebrate with Pouch Mart!!





 
Good day and welcome - I know I have been absent from the blog lately - but my excuse is a wonderful one! My son was married last weekend in our back yard - so I have been concentrating all of my efforts towards that wonderful event!! I will be posting pictures as I get them - so stay tuned!

On to the important business of the day - I am especially excited to be participating in a special Blog Waltz today!

Several of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team members are using Waltzingmouse Stamps to co-ordinate with their bags from Pouch Mart!!

Pouch Mart is a web store that sells all shapes, colours and sizes of bags - and the folks over at Pouch Mart have generously sent us some of their fabulous bags to work with! Aren't we lucky!!

They are also offering a $25 Pouch Mart gift certificate for one lucky commenter!! And Waltzingmouse Stamps are also offering a free stamp set to one commenter - it's all wonderful!! See all of the exciting prize details at the end of my post!



I received a couple of these cute little Eco-Friendly Mini Totes from Pouch Mart and knew immediately that they were the perfect card size! They are 5" x 5 1/2" and are eco-friendly - that is they are non-harmful to the environment since you certainly wouldn't throw out this sweet bag - it is a re-user - and look at all the pretty colours!



I decided to glamour up my turquoise tote with some lace trim and fringed felt. I used my trusty glue gun - so easy!! (although my fingers now have no fingerprints haha) It is exactly the right size for my card so I am using this bag instead of an envelope when I go to that special birthday party!



As I said earlier in my post, Pouch Mart is offering a $25 Gift Certificate to one lucky commenter and Waltzingmouse Stamps is providing a free stamp set to one commenter!

You have until Sunday, July 29th at 11:59 p.m. to leave a comment. The winner will be announced on Julia's blog on Monday!

  7. EEK, I think my comment disappeared! Let's try again...this is the most cheerful project, Bonnie! I love the crisscrossed patterned rainbows...used some Double Dutch papers myself today, they are so awesome! The bag is so sweet with the little eyelet lace, reminds me of the stitched cloud die cuts on your bag! Congrats to your son and new daughter-in-law...I bet the wedding decor in your backyard was so fabulous, can't wait to see pictures!

  38. And the mini totes come in all different colors!? How wonderful. They are so cute!! And what a sweet treat bag you have created with trims, brilliant! I LOVE your rainbow card done in non traditional patterned papers, it's so strikingly beautiful. I don't know that I would have ever thought of doing that. I'm very much an inside of the box kind of person. LOL Most of the time. I have looked over the rainbow dies because they seemed so boring to me. I need pizazz. LOL Thank you for helping me look outside of the norm. =D I love it when that happens.
