Now today is our daughter Tammy's birthday, It's doesn't seem like 37years ago I was in the little cottage hospital in Devizes giving birth to what I was told a very small baby, now our son was a small 5lbs 7ozs so yes he was small and they thought this one was going to be smaller. So I sat and knitted very small clothes, ( remember no scans back then) to get a shock when told we had a beautiful baby daughter weighing 9lbs 4ozs. Far from small and nothing fitted. Now she complains that she was the biggest out of our three now she is the shortest. Any way I got for my birthday the other day from son and daughter-inlaw a gift bag die ( X Cut A4 die set) and some lovely papers, so of course I had to have a play, so made Tammy a card and bag, and a gift wallet. So here they are.
I embossed my A4 card stock and prefolded card with SB dotty folder, I cut out the foliage out of the bag front, then cut out the foliage again out of pale lilic card then stuck that piece of card inside the bag slightly of set of you could see the colour through the first die cut, used the cut outs on to her card, then just added the oval (cut out from bag) put peel off sentiment on. Then thought I'd have a go to see if I could make a money wallet out of one side of the bag die, I am loving this bag die, it does come with a bow and gift tag die too. I wish I had some organza ribbon in the pale lilic as I know it would have looked better, but never mind I have loads of the satin so satin it had to be.
Off to meet up with Tammy this afternoon for coffee and cake. Son-in-law and grandsons are going to the football after they have been out for lunch, so she is happy about that. She feels she has a lovely birthday so far, seeing how they have just gone and bought a new car.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on Lauren's card she was thrilled with it, we had bought her lots of new clothes ( being practical ) they get enough toys as it is, so we were treated to a fashion show by her - 4 going on 40 is our Lauren.
Well I'd better get a move on and get bits done before I go out. Have a lovely weekend what ever you are doing.
