Three Little Gift Bags!

Good Morning All, hope Monday finds you well, and not being blown away with the quite high winds there seems to be in some places.  We have a blustery day here, but I put towels out so hopefully they will dry.
This is just a short post today, I'm still in my PJ's, and it's after 11 am, such laziness I hear you shout, but I had a poor night with not too much sleep and when I was asleep it seemed to be quite troubled.  Alistair told me I shouted "help" a few times.  I can only think that there is still stress there, I suppose years of bottling it up means it's not going to be solved in a week.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my previous blog, and a warm welcome to my new followers, great to have you here.

I've got three little gift bags to show today, made a few weeks ago, for my crafting visitors, with a little something in them to remind them of their visit. I was rather pleased by how they turned out, see what you think;
The stamped images are a mixture of LOTV and Little Claire, and various papers from my hoard, WO flowers Sizzix dies, and charms from The Ribbon Girl, ribbon from my stash.

I'm off to visit another crafty friend this afternoon, Margaret got me started with embossing and die cutting when I began making cards, so we will have a blether and a couple of hours of crafting.
Have a good day everyone and see you soon,
Kate x

Well I can tell you they were beautiful and the contents were lovely and yummy, as I was one of the lucky ladies that received one. I have put mine in my box of things I want to scrapbook, as these little bags are so pretty.

Beautiful little bags with such wonderful decoration and charms. The contents were fantastic as well, I know because I got one.
I have mine sitting on my sideboard for the moment so I see it each time I pass through the hall.
I thought you were going to say your bad night was Trauma from your meeting on Saturday. Joking apart it was a great, fun day.
Hope you had fun at your crafty friends house.
Hugs
