Time for a Play Date!

Yippee its the weekend and time for me to play along with the The Play Date Cafe colour combo challenge.

It is my Mother-in-Law's Birthday on Monday and we are off to have lunch with her tomorrow. I had already made her card but hubby came home yesterday with a bag of jewellery for his Mum. I decided in these times of austerity, rather than buy wrapping paper, I would decorate the shop bag to match the card I had made. All I needed to do was cover over the shop label with my own design.

So out came my PTI goodies and lots of ink, matched the colours to the Play date challenge-a bit different than the card colours but close enough!

I had a lot of fun with this and like how it turned out, especially next to the card. And naturally saving a bit of money can't be bad whilst playing!!

Here is the bag in the Play Date colours:

And here it is next to the card:

 I'm hoping MIL likes it-I know she will love the jewellery especially as her little boy picked it out for her!

Enjoy your weekend x
