ELZYBELL GIFT BAG -and a very happy Summer

Morning everyone

When I was very first introduced to stamping it was by a lovely friend of mine.  At that time she was very into stamping with the lovely Elzybell images.  Well, I had not tried stamping and I must say we had the most lovely happy Summer that year.  There is a vast distance geographically and I was embossing away making part embossed panels whilst my friend was happily stamping and colouring.  Parcels were whizzing back and forth with me sending lots of part embossed panels and then some were retained and others boomeranged back tome with these lovely images stamped and coloured! We had a real little production line going and Royal Mail must have been clapping their hands! lol They were such happy times,  So this is how this altered bag stemmed from.  I had one or two panels left over  (yes we were really ahead that Christmas!) so this Summer I decided to use some of them up, and what better way than to make an altered Gift Bag to takie to theCraft Fairs.  Well you know me and gift bags!

How is the lead up to Christmas going for you?  I have everything made but still a lot to do.

Thanks for looking today
