Glassine Gift Bag with 3D Foam Heart

Hello friends
Are you keeping warm??
It is proper Winter now isn't it!  
For something a little brighter and Spring-like I put together a small 
gift/favour bag for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
This is using their new 3D Foam Hearts that I featured for sale yesterday.
If you would like to pop over to their blog there are full step by step instructions
showing you how to heat emboss the 3D Foam Hearts.
I'm really rather fond of Jewel Flowers and Flourishes...they keep popping up! 
Glassine bags are become quite a favourite too...is this goodbye to tags?? 
Today was supposed to be my first craft workshop in my new studio/shop so
feeling a little sad that I have had to postpone due to the snow.
What did cheer me up was a neighbouring shop - Flower Heaven brought along a
floral gift for me as a 'welcome to the High Street' gesture.
So kind and I'm really liking fresh flowers on my counter!
Take care friends.
I'm back tomorrow with something new and different...think beads!

Good morning Christine.

I think you did the right thing in cancelling today as it's forecast for us to have a lot of snow today, and it started here a couple of hours ago.

I love the bag you've made, it's so pretty, especially the embossing. Your flowers are beautiful, what a nice gesture from your neighbour.
Lastly, your new stationery looks fabulous, the teal really sets it off.

Have a good day and keep warm.
