Midway Reminder for Midweek Magnolia's and New Deep Ocean Challenge

Hello again its me, lol well like its gonna be anyone else doh!! 
Ok I am back this time with 1 creation but for 2 DT's, yep ran out of hours so they are sharing the one creation.......we are kinda busy behind the scenes but cannot show you yet ;0)
Ok so I have a midway reminder for Midweek Magnolia's & their theme is......
STITCHING - True or Faux
......and we also have a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenge & the theme is....
Both are super duper easy peasy really.
Now I made this last week, then forgot to take pics.........yep I'm good like that lol. So I know I showed you a gift bag yesterday but this one is another gift bag but instead made by me ;0)
I have made this Go-Kreate dies, I used XXL Frame Frilly #3 die for this. The super gorgeous paper is of course Maja Design from Live & Love Crafts, all edges were distressed slightly, inked with walnut & machine sewn as always. I never make anything now without sewing the papers lol.

This is where my sentiments are for Deep Ocean Challenge lol.
This is the back of the gift bag. I've added a Canvas Corp mini bag over the top of a Heart Doily. The seam binding is from my stash & also the 'Handmade' plaque is at the bottom.
The verse on the Mini Bag is Stempelglede 'Just A Note' stamp set. The lace is also from LLC.

Inisde the Mini Bag is 2 tags that I made with a WOJ Tag die that I've had forever. The sentiments on each of the tags are again from the Stempelglede 'Just A Note' stamp set

Here you can see I decorated the sides & added buttons & metal thingy-ma-jigs that I've had in my stash forever lol.

I added the same button again to centre of the seam binding bows. The heart I cut out with Spellbinder dies & also machine sewn around the paper, you can see the stitching better in this pic.

The stamp of course is Magnolia 'Tilda With Dot Bow' & I coloured her with distress ink markers........ I found her in my coloured up box all cut out ready to use. I do remember masking her with something but the other thing I didnt like how the colouring looked so I fussy cut her......... So instead she is lying on Magnolia's 'Lovely Fence', yes I know it must be uncomfy but ssshhhh lol. The roses are from LLC & the rolled flowers I made using a MB die & pink card & added 'White Gesso' to them. The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns' these always sell out quickly at Bunny Zoes but Nikki will have some more in soon. Guess they are not just my favourite lol.

Well thats it from me today, I'm gonna go get armed with a paint brush not for painting stamped images either, though I wish I was crafting. Although tbh what hubster is doing I'm rather excited about...........sssshhhh its a secret but one thats saving me a canny penny or 2 lol.

Thank you so much for stopping by my lovelies mmwah.
Tatty bye & enjoy your day xxxxxxxxx

3rd of May is one of my favourite sheets from VSB II, so pretty! With this unique shape it was a good choice to fussy cut Tilda. Cute with the multiple tags on the inside.
