Festive Cards & Wrap #Handmade #Folksy

Today I thought I would show you cards and wrapping related items. Cards tags, gift bags, and paper for your Christmas gifts. After all we often buy those sort of things first. Cards are usually mixed in with other blogs, themed or otherwise, so I thought it would make a nice change to have more of them. The tags and wrapping are to add more variety and because they tend to come under the same heading and let`s face it we all need them too.
I have to say that while looking I was amazed at the variety of cards as well as the individuality. The tags too are amazing, so many different ones and so beautifully done. I was also surprised to see fabric wrapping for presents as well as the bags for putting your pressies in. Present wrapping need never be boring again.
Yesterday I was busy on the computer and then took my grandson to the cinema. We saw Tin Tin and we both enjoyed it, naturally we had to have popcorn and drinks.
Then last night it was a baby shower for my daughters friend. She had her twins early but they are doing very well. Usually the baby shower is before the birth but my daughter decided to go ahead with it anyway as the invitations had all gone out. I took two Rainbow Cloud Name Plaques with Rainbow ribbon and of course each of their names on in pink letters. Hubby did a lovely job with them and they looked great.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

I awoke to a wet grey morning
no pretty sight as day was dawning,
of the sun bathing the world in golden light
an early morning, stunning sight.
Instead all the world was grey
not a good way to start the day.
Very soon we`ll be shivering more
as winter displays what`s in store
for all of us. It`ll soon be here,
the snow and ice creating fear.
The country all slowing down
for many causing us to frown.
The chidren though, love it so
not bothered, loving the snow.
Out and about in it happily all day
not caring if it`s cold, wanting to play.
Building a snowman, maybe a fort,
hoping they won`t get caught
by a stray snowball in flight,
trying hard to stay light
on their feet to dodge quick
before they feel that icy lick.
With rosy cheeks they look so fair,
lot`s of laughter in the air.
The best part of winter is the fun
to be had when the work is done!
