Morning everyone

So - how is the Christmas shopping going?  I am doing well with mine.  You know how I always like to work ahead?  Well I tend to be the same with Christmas and now I am pleased that  do this.

Well you know how I love making the altered gift bags!  Actually when making for the craft fairs I got a bit bag happy!

I always love the embossed look, I do not know what I would do without my embossing folders.  And somehow this design materialised by just experimenting with trying this and that.  I loved the design and went a bit mad making more in this way with different papers and colours etc.

Thanks for looking today,

  10. Hi Judy, so happy you found my blog, and that I could in turn, follow your link and come back for a visit. I LOVE this bag. It is bloomin' gorgeous with all the gorgeous roses, lace & gold trims. I love embossing folders too, and would never think to use on a bag (well, I don't make bags or treat boxes, but admire the craft that goes into creating them!). Yay for you at having a good handle on your shopping. December isn't the best month to be in the stores. Thanks for becoming a bloglovin follower. If you can, could you join using the Google Friend connect? Then I can 'see' you, and add your info to my friends' spreadsheet info, and when I have blog candy, you'll be included. I don't know how to find people with the Bloglovin, and get their blog links! TFS & have a great week. You have a beautiful blog site.

  11. You don't need to put anything into this gift bag, because the bag is a gift all by itself! It's gorgeous, beautifully detailed and oh so elegant!

  12. Beautiful Bag Judy and I so wish all my christmas shopping was done, I'm running out of days that I can do it :)

  13. Lovely the cream and gold colours it makes it more like a evening bag.
    Very nice!!!!......
