Dottie's World Challenge - Wishing You Well

Hi folks, did you have a good Christmas??????

For those of you who don't know I've lost 32 pounds in weight since the summer with the help of Slimming World but I have a sneaky suspicion that over the past three days I may have put on 32 zillion pounds! Oh well, I had fun doing it! LOL

It's my turn to set the challenge this week over at Dottie's World and I've decided that a card wishing someone well could be in order, here's what I came up with.....
The image is from my new download collection 'Girl about town' I paper pieced it and mounted it onto this simple bag with foam pads.
I made the bag template with auto shapes on MS Word, it did have a handle but I chopped it off to replace it with the ribbon. If you would like to have the template (below) just click on it to enlarge it, right click and click 'save picture as'

Why don't you pop on over to Dottie's World and play along for you chance to be chosen as GUEST DESIGNER FOR JANUARY!
