Wings and from Me to You

Hello everyone-if you are basking in sunshine please could you send some to East Yorkshire because we seem to be shrouded in fog or very cold misty rain these last few days. Always brightens my day to read all the wonderful comments-thank you

Here I am again combining two challenges both of them favourite places of mine

At Crafty Emblies the theme is Wings-they now have two different challenge blogs so do read what the post says there. Then at Craft-room Challenge there is From Me To You which was my inspiration for this piece.

We are taking my MIL our for a slap up meal on Friday as she is visiting someone on Mother's Day. I hadn't a clue what to buy her as a present but she does like cooking and old recipes so this book should be fine.

Always difficult to know what to use to wrap her presents because she does like a clue as to what is inside. I  stamped butterflies onto brown paper and lightly coloured them with water colour pencils then I made a big tag with a Mrs Beeton quote and scribbled on 'Do you know who wrote that' I bet she will know straight away lol. Now for the lovely part-the beautiful cage and birds from Crafty Emblies and a few pieces of ribbon.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day

Love Chrissie xx

Hi Chrissie, this book looks great, a lovely gift for your mother in law but made more so much more special with how beautifully presented it is. The wrapping is gorgeous with the butterflies and birdcage! I always use brown paper to wrap my pressies, so must make a bit more effort in the future! Thanks for joining in with us at the Craft-Room Chrissie.
