Good afternoon,  we started today off with a beautiful morning, blue skies and warm.  Now it's getting very dull and the sky is now grey, oh just what I need when the girls have tennis this afternoon.
Again I must thank you all for your lovely comments on my card.  I have used that die so much that I have order my own one now, that's the good thing about borrowing and seeing if you like a certain die or not, it's great.
I got a request asking if I could make something to put some hand knitted baby little cardigans into to make them into a lovely little gift that was different, so this is what I did.

Yes I used my new gift bag die again, I very simply embossed with SB dotty folder, added the rocking horse die.  I put a white one under the blue just off set.  And of coarse a pretty pink SW bow on the other one, now if I had had a pink rocking horse die cut I would have used that, but these were from Patricia  and I had used the pink ones up.  Tie some ribbon from stash added a Dummy embellishment and that was it.  Took me all of just over half an hour to make and do.

I thought I would share this photo taken yesterday at the Loch across from work, I just love this time of the year when all the young are about.

That's it for today, off now to get the girls from school and get them to tennis, well that's if it on seeing how it is now raining and we have had thunder.

Take care.
