Fox and Friends Gift Set

Hi,  I know, I have surprised you again (as well as myself) but I am working on a few projects at the moment.  I have tiles drying on my bench and three half finished projects on my table waiting for decoration.  So on to this one using the fox and friends stamp set....
 Sticking with my theme of late I have been trying to make gift sets and this is a pumpkin basket (and ideal for Halloween, lol) with a couple of 3" x 3" cards, bookmark and a couple of tags.  Sorry that my photo is blurry, they look good at the time I take them!!!
 So a close up of my little basket with retired dsp, hehehe
 A closer look at the 3" x 3" cards
And a different angle to view the set.
Instructions you ask, and yes, get in contact with me and I will give them to you or I will blog them again with instructions.  This was made a little while ago and even though I have been trying to be very good and have everything written down this one slipped on by.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a great evening/day.  Have fun watching the Olympics, I know it has been in our household as much as possible......

Suitcase/Box Set

I know, you are surprised I am posting for the second day in a row!  So am I!  But I just finished my big project and wanted to show you straight away.  I bought the tutorial from Becky Roberts years ago and have finally got around to making it.  Terrible how you buy things because you love the look of them and just don't make the time to get stuck into making it.  Well finally here it is:
 So is this a set or what!!!  It was so much fun making it.  So the suitcase (which you can't see very well in the background), four cards, two book marks, post-it note and pen.  And I wanted to make it for a male as I hardly ever do male projects and thought this would make a good one, also Fathers Day is coming up, lol.
 These two cards are the same just cut the card differently, one horizontal and the other vertical.  I only just bought this stamp set and don't know why I waited so long, such a cool set to play with.
 The next two cards are pocket ones...., threw in an extra photo (for no particular reason, hehehe)

 Two bookmarks which I think are so sweet, decided to go with the chocolate brown as the green and blue were starting to get to me.....  This is also a retired stamp set, I was looking for something small and malish and I think this branch just about covers that.
 Post-it note holder and pen with the dsp on the inside, very hard not to decorate a pen when you have done it once....
 The box opened with transparency sheets for the pocket, love the look but I don't like using it!
 Now the other side of the bag with the set.
I know I should write all the information about the recipe but again if you would like to know anything, just drop me a line.
Hope you liked it and have a lovely day/night.....
