"Gift Bag"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and behaving.  Mind you behaving is rather boring is it not!!!  I might just be quick post from me this week.
The boys are off school for the "tattie" holidays.  Hardly seems time since they went back after the summer holidays.  We have  LOTS planned as mum & dad are both off for the whole 2 weeks.  I am getting myself sorted so that we are free to do whatever they throw at us.  Audrey has so many things listed we had to tell her us "oldies" will need a couple of "Rest Days" 
Today`s Gift Bag was made and filled it with some Goodies to give to Rita when Hazel and I met her in Glasgow.  It was our first meetup, however Rita has been very good to me over the few years I have known her through Blogging.  I was delighted to give her a little something for a change.

Gift Bag Centura Pearl Card
XCut Gift Bag Die borrowed from Hazel.  When she lent me the Die I cut out lots and lots with different card for future use.  I love this bag it goes together so easily and is so, so useful for gifts.    The only thing is ..... it is a very "sharp" Die, not that it would cut "you"   It cuts beautifully but also cuts through the bits that only need to be creased.  With that in mind Centura Pearl Card and thicker is what has to be used.  

SB Blossom Five for the Roses 
Scraps from my Bit Box to make the Roses
Marianne Die for the beautiful Scroll.  Rita sent me some of these some time ago which made me buy the Die, its a fantastic Scroll  
SW Classic Rose Die leaves I had in my Die Cuts Box
Meiflower Organza ribbon
A Craftworks Card Sentiment

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave your wonderful comments
Till Next Time
