Across The Miles

Hello all my lovely people how are you all? Are you getting excited for the big red jolly fella? He will be here soon wobbling his belly like a bowlful of jelly!!!!!!! Eeeeeeee I really cant wait & although its hectic this time of year, its the BEST time of year.......LOVE IT!!!!!!!
I am hoping for some crafty time today as I'm really missing it however I thought I would show you this I made for a lovely bloggy friend.
I made a gift bag to put some yummy goodies in.
I've used Inger Harding digi papers, I love digi stuff cus its perfect for doing different sizes.

I've kept it all pretty simple as its got travel to a different country & I didnt want anything getting damaged. 

The top corner shows the velcro to open it up inside. The bottom corner is the velcro on the flap, I also added seam bing there as an anchor to lift the flap.  Added 'Tiara' stickles to the large poinsettia.
I've added a sentiment & a 'Christmas Angel'.
Seam binding & lace is from my stash, gift bags I've had for probably 2 years & cant remember where I got them.

I did cut it down in length a bit although when I started filling it I wished I hadnt as I struggled fit it all in. I'm not gonna show you all the goodies as it will ruin her surprise...........although this lady wont know its for her lol.

I really enjoyed making this its ages since I've done one, you never know you may see more lol.

I did manage to do a bit of commenting last night although I'm sorry they were not my usual type I did it in bed from my Kindle & it was the first time I'd used it like that lol.
I did mean to do some earlier but Expendables 2' arrived as I had pre-ordered it from Amazon...........it was absolutely fantastic & I will be watching it again later in the week, you've got to, its THE LAW!!!

Okie doke thats it from me I will be round to catch up with more blog hopping later. Thank you so much for stopping by, you are gems.
Tatty bye mmwah xxxxxxxxxx
