Bag and flowers for Karen

I have always found that strong colours lift my mood.   A good friend of mine turned 50 last week.   I purchased a gift voucher from a place where there are hot springs.   (I always find that it is something you never buy for yourself)  On the front of the bag I have used the following quote:

'Don't walk in front of me,

I may not follow.

Don't walk behind me,

I may not lead,

Just walk beside me and be my friend.   

Albert Camus.

I also bought a yellow candle  (jasmine scent)   to place inside the bag.  The card was made using one of the photos I took.  
The bluey/green paper is by Cosmo Cricket (Tea for Two)  The roses on the bag and tag I picked up from the local craft store.

It's a good time to be in here updating my blog........  My daughter is in the kitchen inventing recipes.  I love the fact that she wants to create and invent, but told her that she can only do this on a friday.   It looks like cupcakes with jellybeans tonight. I think that she has also made cupcakes and put chocolate in the middle. This chocolate, hopefully should be a nice melting surprise in the middle.  (Here's hoping)

I am linking to Stonegables Tutorial Tips and Tidbits.   There is also a wonderful giveaway on her blog.   I am spending most of my time at my Facebook Page 

Have a great weekend.
