There's something about woodgrain...



Doggy bag challenge

There's something about woodgrain that appeals greatly to me. Love the natural organic feel. :)



I have been looking for a woodgrain background stamp for the longest time. So I was excited when I saw this woodgrain stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. [yes I bought both the 12x12 and 6x6...this girl has been deprived of woodgrain ...and there was 45% off...*LOL*]


All I did was add some pretty lace from Gauche Alchemy's Lace Ribbon Variety Pack, burlap, an ice-cream stick and a faux bird....The lace was stapled on , the bird had a wire that was wound around the hole I punched in the ice-cream stick and the whole thing was attached using a big brown round brad. So the recipient can detach the pretty bits and use them on another project.


And I have a really quick decorated doggy bag aka LESSology Challenge #3: The Doggy Bag. Come play along? I would love to see your entries! :)

This is gorgeous Yvonne! I really adore the woodgrain, too. That template is just brilliant for larger projects like this so you don't have to deal with lining up the background stamp perfectly. LOVE the layered lace and the fun bird. And that ice cream stick is just the perfect perch for it. Fabulous!!
