Tote With Cards!!!

Today's project is a tote bag with a set of cards. There is only one card showing but the bag holds five........and they are in!!!
All paper is Basic Grey-Wassail and the project used up quite a lot of leftovers.
On the cards the trees are handcut and the oval greeting plaque is cut on the Cricut.
On the bag the edging is a Fiskars border punch and the flowers on the bottom of the handles are a Woodware punch.

Today I have spent the day finishing up jobs.
All outstanding Lucky Dip prizes are now packed and ready to go to the Post Office. If hubby has the time I will get him to post them tomorrow for me but if not it will be Thursday.
Sorted out loads of card blanks and covered them with paper ready to make sets for all of the totes I have ready.
Now I'm just in the middle of clearing my desk before I go to work tomorrow.

I did spend a very lazy ten minutes watching a couple with their three comical dogs in the field at the back this afternoon. Awwww they were so cute. Two black labs and a teeny tiny Jack Russell playing football. The ball was bigger than the little JR but my word he gets points for trying. I think he was definitely the!!!

Back to my tidying for now.

Thanks for dropping by.
