Traditional colours for this bag


What a great weekend. Friday we went to the theatre to see Marti Pellow in Blood Brothers, Saturday I was selling at a craft fair, which went quite well, and today we are off out with friends this afternoon for a meal and then off to see The Searchers in concert. (They are a 60s band for those youngsters amongst you.)

 I've made another of my bags for the craft fairs. I've used some free Holly Hobbie papers along with a Little Claire diecut. I've edged the paper with DI Forest Moss and the diecut iwth Worn Lipstick. The card candi and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards, tree and present from Anitas which I found in my stash, Woodware punched holly leaves and a bulldog clip to finish. I wanted to make a more traditional style with a modern twist.
