Hello One and All, if you're getting the sunshine I hope that you re enjoying it
I am so pleased July is out of the way!
This post is picture heavy and so I'm going to keep this brief. I finished it all late last night, so I am going to enter it in the MAWTT challenge whose theme is BABY this week See here

The gift in a different colour way to my previous knitting projects and if I'd really thought about it, I would have used different colours on the card/bag to match - I just went for safe pink!

The layout is based on a Saturday Sketch dated 13th June 2015
The gift bag, I was really pleased with this bag - not my usual "thang" but I will make more for future gifts and just change the colours. I also, didn't have a lot of white ribbon so next time will make that a little longer and will place the velcro more towards the edges of the flap
I got really excited when I discovered a clock "shape" on Serif and you can alter the time to suit

I added a small daisy to the top left hand corner but forgot to photograph it

5x7 card blank
White card - some of it coloured pink to match topper
My Craft Studio cd-rom "Young at Heart"
SW Open Daises
SW Pierced Tags
SW Pierced Flags
SW New York Collection - Herald Square
SW Gemini Collection - Lyra
Tonic - Swirls (I think)

I don't think I've ever made something with as many dies! 
Out dancing tonight - well watching, until the stitches come out

Blogger playing me up now so I'm going to hit the "publish" button before I lose the lot!
