Gorjuss Gift Bag...

Finally I got to give my friend her christmas present today!  She understood why it took so long (I purchased it the day my dad died and totally forgot what I had done with it when it came to christmas).  It was nice to give it today as her mum and brother share the same birthday and I went bearing gifts for them as it was theirs on Saturday. Cards for them to follow!

The topper is made with a gorjuss girl stamp "ladybird" stamped with a basic hobbycraft black ink pad and coloured with Spectrum Noir pens then Spectrum Noir pencils.  Very spring like with pink and green!

The works is a great shop for craft bits, the wide pink ribbon and white crochet ribbon reels were 99p as was a pad with the 6x6 butterfly papers which I cut down.  The green backing paper is a scrap of the dotty 12x12 by create & craft.  The lace is from my stash which I purchased in bulk from ebay!  The paper doily is from Hobbycraft.

The flowers are from a really old set from QVC no longer available sadly, they have practically no craft shows now.

The gorjuss topper cut with spellbinders Labels 28 and edged with Stampin Up Pixie Pink ink pad.

The gift a steampunk style necklace!

Will post the birthday cards tomorrow

Thanks for visiting!
