Not a card!

Hello blogworld,

This is going to be a short post from me - am trying to watch telly and type this and one or the other's got to go - sorry bloggyfriends it's you!  No offence, even hubby looses out to my fav telly programme!

Also very busy at home just now with Em off on half-term, but luckily she is much better (cold and behaved).

So not a card from me this time but a gift bag - inspired by the Lili of the Valley ideas to inspire blog and Bev Rochesters project there.

So, heavy on the old pictures here!

Bag looks a bit wonky in the next picture, but it isn't - it's that the flowers are hanging over the edge a bit and so it won't sit right.  Better placement next time I think!

Not so sure about the flowers on the handle, but quite like the rest.  It was actually quite easy to make, and I can see it being adapted to different sizes and shapes.

I used:
Sugar Nellie stamp: Daisy, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Chalked while in the die (it was cut out with a nestie circle).
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the ones on the handle are Prima.
Brads from my stuff
The bag itself is made from long rectangular nesties and the handle a Martha Stewart punch

Hope everyone else is well.


A challenge, or two:
