#196 'In the Country'

This fortnight at Ooh La La Janice has chosen the theme 'In the Country' . So plenty of scope there to get your creative mojo going!!
I used the 'Carnival of Colour' CD to inspire me. I have made a gift bag and six notelets using the Yorkshire countryside images from this CD.

I had some yellow aperture cards in my stash from eons ago. The colour is not one I use regularly but I felt it matched the scenes perfectly and it was bright and cheery for these current gloomy Winter days. You can see I'm longing for a bit of yellow sunshine here!!

For the bag I used some card stock with birds on a blue background, which I got from Lidls a while ago. Then trimmed it, to match the cards, with yellow card stock. The design for the bag came from You Tube. There are many on there, just search as I no longer have the link, sorry. I decided not to add any words to the cards as I felt the recipient of the gift could use them for any occasion and adding a greeting would limit this. Not sure now whether they are too plain.

If you need more inspiration please pop over to Ooh La La (link in sidebar) to see what the rest of the team have won't be disappointed.  The results of the 'Girlie' challenge is there too. So off you go and see if you were in the Top Three.

Have a crafty week and keep warm on these chilly days!!
