"Gift Bags"

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Thank you so much for stopping to look at what I have been up to and leaving your encouraging comments.  I have a few new followers, I am so delighted you pressed the button to become a follower Thank You for doing that.
Our boys are home safe & sound from their trip to Barcelona.   Had a quick phonecall, they were just awake at 10am. they said they will be along later.  Looking  forward to that, we have really missed them.  
John Jnr is on the move within the Fire Service once again.  We will have pick ups from school to do when Mummy`s shifts as a Midwife don`t quite work into their schedule.  Daddy will be office based, he will drop the boys at school in the mornings.  We might have them some days during future School holidays which will keep us busy.  Grandpa more than me as they will off on their bikes.  I don`t do cycling now, always hated it but did it for John and then with the boys.  Now they are older they don`t really need me as long as Grandpa is there, I have sold my bike  .....  Yipee!!!
So with all that in mind I will stepping back a bit from Blogging in the coming months.  I will try to show things, plus trying to keep going with "Oldie for Friday"    I will still be looking in on your Blogs and commenting when I can. 
Hazel and I met up with two Blog friends for the first time last week.  What a fantastic day we had, never met before but was like we had known them forever.  We have done the same with Kate in Inverness, Ang and Christine who we met at Birmingham.    I made a Gift Bag for each of them,  filled with Tablet and some other Chocolate Treats.  Here are the bags, they were tied with Organza Ribbon to match the flowers with an added Gift Tag.  Forget to photograph the finished bags ...  typical, just typical but you get the idea.

Bags made in Centura Pearl Card using an Xcut Die
Flowers are Velum using a Woodwear Punch then coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens
Leaves a combination of SB Foliage & SW Rose Dies
Pearls from my stash
They were tied with Organza Ribbon from MieFlower,  the Tag made from the waste from the handle was stamped with a greeting
Both ladies were delighted which makes it all worth while

That`s it folks
Thank you so much for your visits, comments and continued support
Till next time
