Jeepers Creepers

Hello Blog friends hope you are all well.  
The schools in our area finish this week to start the summer break.  I do hope the weather improves some what for the children to be outside as much as possible.  We don`t child mind, however the boys will be along here a fair few times no doubt.  We all live out in the country just 8miles apart. We have the added attraction of lots of woods where they can climb trees.  

I had a request for a card for an 11 year girl .... !!!! 
Here is what I came up with, thank goodness the Granny was delighted.

The stamps I have had for a couple of years, they are in my album of stamps.
Sorry folks I have not a clue which Companies stamps they are.
I paper pieced the boots and coloured bits of them
The little verse stamp came with the boot stamp. Happy Birthday is a very old StampinUp stamp 
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit and all your comments I really appreciate them.
Have a great weekend

Gift box for a Man

Hello Blog friends and followers hope you are all well.
After such along spell away from Blogging I would like thank everyone who has popped in recently for their loyal support. 
I made the bags shown in my last post for the two female teachers at Robert`s school.  They also have a man teacher part-time who Robert really likes.  Robert and the teacher get on very well, they are both into music especially Drums.  Robert also plays guitar taught by dad.  Thomas is very left handed and although he also plays guitar he gets rather frustrated sometimes.  Give Thomas a problem to sort out, he is much happier doing that.
Anyway here is my box:-

Base Kraft Card
Paisley Card is Kanban card I have had for years
The only thing I found difficulty about the box was getting the lid to fit
However 2nd go was the better fit
I used a big button as the embellishment

Audrey (DIL) has mini products for men to put in it.
That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate each and every one
Till next time

Gift Bags!

Hello Blog friends and followers, thank you for calling by.  If you landed here because you pressed a wrong button, welcome, please stay a while. If you have time please leave a comment so I know you called. 
I hope you have all had a good weekend and looking forward to the week ahead.  
Here in this part of the North East of East Scotland the children finish school on Friday for the summer.  I do hope we get a glimpse of it while they are off, we did have a couple of days last week and the week before.  That was it for our part of the world.
I had a few Gift Bags to make for Teacher Gifts, thank goodness Robert goes to a tiny little school.
Here are two bags I have made:-

XCut Die for the bags 
SB & SW Foliage Dies  
SB Garden Blooms for the flowers 
I have not put sentiments on till I hear what Robert wants on them
These bags are brilliant, they hold quite a few Travel/Miniature products.
Audrey (DIL) has the products bought and ready.
They have a man teacher, I will make a box for his gift ... don`t know what that is yet.
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
