To My Sweetheart

Hello my lovelies how are you all? A quickie post for me today as I have so much to do & I'm also hoping the weather stays nice so I can go for a run later, I'm gonna run around the lake........maybe take some bread feed the swans & ducks lol. Fingers crossed for me NOT falling in lol.

Okie doke the creation I have made today I did bit by bit over the course of a couple of days just when I had time lol. Its for the Ribbon Girl's Challenge blog which is a colour theme, so also decided go along the vintage route as well.
PIC HEAVY also sorry for the not so good pics it was hard to photo & so therefore doesn't do it justice :0(
I made a gift bag, I have sooooooooo many of these gift bags that I thought it was about time I used them more..........also I lurve decorating gift bags. This is a smaller one which is perfect for those special small gifts ;0)

The rolled flower is from a spellbinder die, I made this one ages ago & found it in my drawer so thought I would pop it on here, it was one of those last spur of the minute things lol. The swirl is a Magnolia die here.

This is the back of the bag which I tried to keep more low key...........sort of lol. The papers are Prima 'Lyric', luckily when this pad came out I brought 3-4 pads I think lol, the edges have been distressed, inked & machine sewn.

 The postcard is a stamp I've had for ages & cant remember where from. The 'LOVE' is a Marianne die from Bunny Zoes & the pearl heart in the top right corner is also a Marianne Designs from Bunny Zoes
This gorgeous image I just thought was perfect for a wedding or an anniversary.........of course as its from a loved one I thought a Gift Bag would be perfect to pop in maybe a bit of bling ;0)
I think I got the image off the internet, I've had it that long tbh & it was in my vintage image box.

All 3 different laces that I've used are from my stash. The gorgeous 'Tulle' trim which I lurve is from Live & Love Crafts, the Kort ot Godt rolled roses are also from LLC. The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns'.

This last pic I took on a black backing to try get a better pic.........I still failed though for some reason lol.
The bows I made with gorgeous 'Silky Crush Ribbon' which you can get at the Ribbon Girl store here. I have it in quite a few colours, it really is sooooo gorgeous IRL. The doilies & cheese cloth are from LLC.

Well thats it form me I better move my butt & get back to my list of things to do. 
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend & fingers crossed it stays sunny..........we keep getting grey clouds up here :0(   Off to link my creation up now while there is still time lol, I did mean to post it yesterday but went get my tattoo finished & then completely forgot :0(

Tatty bye my lovelies & thank you sooooooo much for all your lovely comments, you always make me smile...........YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!! MMWAH
