Christmas dinner gift bags.......

Hello to all, I hope you are well & happy!

Thought I'd share a few things I've made, for Christmas day. One of mine & Jool's purchases at the craft show the other week was some lil gift/treat bags which I thought would be great with some choccies & sweets in.

These particular ones I have made to sit on the dining table when it has been transformed for Christmas dinner, acting as place cards & to give each of the 'diners' (oh...that sounds a few chocs & a small table present inside. They will be lil gifts from my boys.

For the images & scalloped edge I've used a template which was a magazine freebie a couple of months ago, then coloured them with my trusty watercolour pencils, finishing with just a touch of
CS is all Bazzill & then ribbon added for fastening the bags. However when the boys fill the bags up I'll then close them with eyelets.

I'm quite pleased with how they've turned out, but as yet haven't decided if I'm going to keep the images at the top or reposition them in the middle of the bag itself.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Kerry xxx

Award thank you's.....

Distressed again......

Hi all, I hope your weekend was a good one?!...... I took myself off to the NEC with my lovely Sis-in-law Jools. We had a fab day, although I think I can speak for us both... "our feet were killing us by the end of the day!.." lol.
Don't know if anyone else is the same but the strangest things seem to give me inspiration, Saturday it was a pom-pom ribbon! Only trouble is I didn't buy it when I saw it, thought I'd go back & get it later &..........yep, it was sold out!!! Trust

So, the card below which I've made for hubbies Aunt who will be 6o this week has had the distressed treatment.
PP's are all from a paper pack from Daisy D's, along with the tag. Image is one which Vicki very kindly sent me a while back, which I have coloured with watercolour pencils & then clear embossed over. Lace, ribbon & eyelets from stash & sentiment is Doodlebug Rub-ons in white which I have then inked over.

Hopefully this week I'll get chance to play with my new goodies I bought at the show, &, attack my list of Christmas cards I need to make!!!
Bye for now,
Kerry xxx

Happy Birthday Holly......

Hi all, I hope you are well on this damp Wednesday?!........

Here is a card I made for my son's to give to their friend for her 6th birthday. Wonder if you can guess what her name is?
Letters & pp's are from a digital download at Shabby Princess ......'Flea Market Chic'. I've double mounted the letters onto card, to give the effect of chipboard letters, so as they would stand out more. Ribbon, lace & eyelets from my stash.
The idea with the ribbons is that later they can be tied together so as the front of the card can be hung up, if wanted.

Thanks for popping by,

I've been tagged.......!!!!!

Well, what can I say, other than I've had to use some of the grey matter inside my head lol.The first tag I've been passed on is from Wiccababe & Alex, again sorry for the delay in posting this but firstly thinking of facts about myself whether interesting or weird is not the easiest & then secondly whether anyone would want to read them! hehe.......

So, the rules...
1. Link to your tagger & list the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
