Best of Everything Thanks

Hi there!
Tonight I'm feeling tired after a hard week, but very thankful for many things, so I thought it'd be a good time to show you a couple of thank you projects.
First up is a card & bag I made back in September, to thank a lovely hostess for a great workshop.
This was my first play (of many so far) with the fun 'Best of Everything' set, which was a total must-have on my first new catty order. The colours I've used here are peach parfait, certainly celery, choc chip & white. Here's a close up of the card...
... and the bag. These bags are so simple to make - just scoring & a few cuts - but look so effective. the matching tag adds a little extra something.
The second card I have to show you shares the same birdie layout, this time with a scallop square die, and using baja breeze, marina mist instead of the celery.
I made this one to welcome a new Demonstrator to my team in September too. As you'll see, I had some lighting issues taking this pic, so the pic colours don't look right, despite lots of photoshop fiddling (sigh)

Anyway, I'm pretty tired tonight so I'll finish here for now. If you have any questions about the projects, need any other info, please say hi & leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail.

Until next time, sending inky wishes,

PS: Almost forgot - In case you haven't realised, the scallop square duo die is 10% off in November, so it's a great time to get this really useful die. There's lots more too - check out the full list of what's on sale HERE.

I really love how you've added the Itty Bitty flowers to the tree branch, Di. Very, very cute!
