Birthday treats

I must be the slackest blogger in the world lately.  I've been working my day job from sun-up to well after sundown every day for weeks now and it's seriously impacted my time to blog.  But never fear there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  I have one more business trip next week and then I should be back to the usual level of busy - and not completely insane.

Ok enough rambling... could you tell that was a belated apology for not posting more often recently?  So as a treat I'm going to share something I made for a dear friend of mine for her birthday a few weeks ago.  You might remember I posted photos of the card I made in my last post... well this is what I made to go with it.  It's a tote bag containing 4 gift cards and envelopes.  I've used lots of items from the mini - the top note die, the very vintage wheel, and some very vintagey colours.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
