Newborn Baby "Welcome" Gift Basket

I used ordinary brown wrapping paper [cheap from Asda] and wrapped the bundled birth announcements together to secure, removed cards again. I then trimmed the top of the 'bag' with pinking scissors and stamped image of teddy, then placed cards back in the bag.
Hand stamped images from "Bundle of Joy" set and Nursery Letters Stampin Around wheel I'd made 12 birth announcements in total: A close-up of the raised effect of the handstamped and cut teddy bear:
Ink pads: Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip Cardstock: my own. Stamp set: "Bundle of Joy" Trims: Dotty brown ribbon from Hobbycrafts Brown wrapping paper from Asda

Some of my decorated end of term 'thank you' gifts/cards

Some thank you cards using the new oval punches and stamps. Plus the 2-step stamping of the flower from the "Heartfelt" set:
I recycled these paper bags [previously school lunch bags] and hand stamped them with the "Polka Dot Punches" SAB set in Green Garden and Pink Passion:

General Birthday card

Denise's 40th B'day card

Sorry I haven't had much chance of late to get some of my work up on my blog recenty - having too many things on the go at the moment including a change of pattern in my working hours!
My chum Denise's 40th B'day was back in May and we all met up for a lovely birthday meal in Edinburgh - had a fabby time - this was her card I made including matching envelope too!
