Bag Toppers

Good Morning Ladies,

Ladies please join me in wishing Our Lovely Janet a Very Happy Birthday, I hope you have a lovely day Janet, filled with fun, surprises and hopefully a little bit of cake.!

Now onto to today's project, not a card for a change!  
Danielle and I run a  Facebook Group that is all about crafting, be it card making, Origami, knitting, sewing, absolutely anything crafty.  We decided when we started that one of the things that we wanted to do was Monthly 'Swaps',  so anyone that wants to take part puts their name forward, we pick partners and then have a Month to make and send your Swap.
The first 'Swap' was chosen by Danielle and it was to make 'Two Bag Toppers', it was up to you whether you made just the toppers or filled a bag of goodies and pop your Toppers on the top.

I added a few bits and pieces to my bags and created my Toppers from Grand Decorative Circles for the larger bag, I used Petal Pink and Cream card and added some lace Applique' flowers to decorate the bag topper.
The Smaller Bag Topper was made with Sue Wilson's Millie Die, cut in the same colours and decorated with a single Flower Applique, topped with tiny resin flower.
I think that they are both quite pretty and I'd be happy to receive them.

I will be sharing all of the entries on our Saturday Blog Posts, as you would expect there was a huge range of styles.  Lynda and Cheryl both took part and both made beautiful bag toppers too.

Our next Swap will be 3 x 3 notecards, I am looking forward to the seeing what everyone makes, you can join in too if you like, just let me know.

Pat, I was sorry to read that Pete had another bad day, I hope and pray that you get care package in place very soon, it seems ridiculous that this has been expected for so long but the care package you need is not ready. Sending huge hugs xxx

Lilian I hope that you are feeling a little better my lovely xxx

Val, sending you huge hugs, this first few weeks on new medication is miserable, I am so sorry that you have had to delay your trip to UK.

Sending love and hugs to all you too,
