Gift Bag!

Hello Friends and Visitors, welcome to my Blog and I hope you will like what you see here.
Thank you to everyone who commented on my last card, you are very kind and I welcome each comment.
I hope you are well, although there loads of visruses going around and no one seems to  escaping them, except me at the moment. But if you are poorly I hope you will feel better soon.
Of Course we started the New Year with some very sad news about Rachel and her two little girls loosing their beloved husband and dad, I'm sure they are in everyone's thoughts that they will get through this very difficult time.

Well this is just a short post as I'm off to work soon, and I thought I'd better post something, however I have not much in my folder other than Christmas cards. I have been making cards for people who want them, but I can't post them yet, but here is something that was for Christmas but not a card;
Hazel from Basket's of Joy, very kindly brought when she visited me, some of these bags already cut out, I must try and get the die, it's a Xcut one. Now Hazel I don't know if I out it together in the right way, I kind of thought that the join shouldn't show, but the recipiant loved it.
Tattered lace Bells, SB swirlie flourish and WO roses.  It held a candle, it was for our friend Linda.

So I must get off now and get the lippy and perfume on and kit myself out to face the stormy weather we have just now, although it the sun is shining at the moment.

So until next time have a good day and hope to see you soon,

Great little gift bag Kate, it makes a gift all the more special when given in such a special way.

Hazel said...

Kate, I hope you didn't get blown away with this terrible wind that you guys are having more than us.
Red. bag the bits go inside not out side, but it was an age ago that I gave you these and knowing me I will not have explained how they went. But it still turned out beautifully.
It is a great die to have as those bags can be used for so many occasions.

Do t over work Hazel xx

Good evening Kate,
Great use of the Die Cut Bags. The seam should be on the inside, however it looks good anyway.
Hazel cut me loads but I just had to have the Die.
These bags can be used for so many ocassions
Hope work was not too stressful

Hi Kate,
fab Christmas gift bag.
Isn't Hazel just the most generous lady.
She always goes the extra mile, and so does her sister too.
Looking forward to seeing more of these when you get your hands on that die.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Looks live a very handy gift bag, especially when decorated like this.
Getting ready for the storm tonight, but they seem to have down-graded it, now only 60mph gusts, not the 100 mentioned this morning.

Wonderful idea Kate - I love making paper bag cards and albums. I am going through a VERY lazy stage and don't want to do anything but read by the fire!
