Good afternoon.    So far we are having a lovely day.  After the awful day yesterday, with gale force winds it does feel spring like - BUT tomorrow is another awful day . Washing out dried and back in side, not ironed as I don't have time that will be done in the morning.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my card. Today I am showing a card made with the other border die I bought on Saturday.  I have made it into a Mothers Day Card the boys can give it to their mum.   My little "IZZY BAG" is my first attempt, very easy, but will play about to see what else I can  do.     I used pearlised card for both the card and bag, plus some Anna- Marie spotty card.

 Sorry I seem to have cut the photo off at the bag side, but you get the look.  

Right I am off to get ready to go pick up Beth from school, where has the day gone??? It's vaulting tonight, so it's home a quick snack then back out again.  

I hope every one is well if not here are some (((((hugs))))).

Take care when out and about.

    Well done you! Your bag is gorgeous and love the matching card!
    I really must make one of these lovely bags.
    Thank you.

  2. Well done Hazel. You must have sneezed that in as I left a comment on yesterday's post not long ago and it wasn't there then. It is gorgeous. Just tried cutting a JS ivy corner die and Sue's Camilia dies and no problems. See you later at the cafe.

  3. Brilliant Card and Bag, love them.
    Mmmm!! I feel a purchase coming on. I like the effect of the Die on the Bag.

  16. Hi Hazel, love your beautiful card and bag, what gorgeous dies these are..

  17. Beautiful. I think you are possibly enabling me to want another SW die! I'm not Irish (well, maybe somewhere in the Heinz 57 variety gene pool), but we have a friend who is, and a niece in-law who is most definitely. And I like the cheerfulness of green. Off to see the earlier post that I somehow missed. Gotta learn more about this die. And lucky girls to be visiting Ireland. We were in Dublin for 3 days - long ago. Loved it! Have fun. TFS & Hugs

  18. Two beautiful bags Hazel. Those dies are stunning I can see me giving into temptation before too long! Susan x

  21. Hi Hazel,
    These are gorgeous. I bet the boys will be so proud giving their card to their mam. I love the die used on the bag, and have just seen the post from yesterday, I don't know how I didn't come on to see it before now.
    Are you going vaulting tonight, by you're fit. I couldn't even do the run up!!
    Love Maureen xx

  22. Hi Hazel,
    these are so gorgeous.
    I thought when I saw what you had bought we would see some very lovely creations.
    Will be making a pink nappy cake soon for my other granddaughter, as she is having a girl in July.
    Started collecting for it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  23. Hello Hazel, your bags are fantastic, love the dies. I had a look at the instructions on the SW blog and it looks complicated, but would love to try it, hope all is well, hugs Kate x
