Summer Breeze - and Two Gift Bags

Good morning! It's not a bad day - at least there's no rain!

I have two creations to show you today - two gift bags - steps to make are in docrafts Creativity Magazine Issue 38 - and a birthday card.

A Papermania stamp that I think I bought last Christmas and never inked up was used on one of the bags, and coloured with Pro's.  It was decorated with a handmade flower, MS die Ice Skates and and MS leaf swirl.  I didn't think that the second bag needed much more than a hand made flower, ribbon bow and butterfly because of the paper I used to make the bag.  These bags are so easy to make and can be used to give a gift for all sorts of occasions like a gift for a new baby or a leaving gift.

I used a digi image called Summer Breeze from Spesch Designer Stamps for the birthday card coloured with Pro's and a touch of distress ink around the edges.  A few eyelets and a Spellbinders die for the sentiment finished it off.
