Fussy and Fancy....Make a gift/anything but a card

Hi Susan here...

We are half way through our current challenge at Fussy and Fancy, so Group B has its chance to give you some inspiration.
The theme is Make a Gift/Anything but a card
For full details of the challenge, our sponsor and to get some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.

Now onto my 

I decided I might make another gift to give to one of my daughters, we all love handmade gifts and all of us get a lot of use out of notepads, so making this was not a hard decision to make.
The small amount of backing paper and cardstock is from our stash. The calendar jumble is our own digi design.
The flowers are a mix from Hobby Craft and Crafty Emma's Store. The leaves have been made from white cardstock, deckle scissors, inks and a ball tool.
The ribbons are all from our Local Market.
The beautiful snowflake charm is from Crafty Emma's Store.
I used some red mirri card and dies to cut out the letters that spell the word 'lists', something me and my family do a lot of. A list for this, a list for!!

This is to show you the side view of the notepad.

This cute digi image 'Jolly Josie' has been designed by Marina Neira and available from The Stamping Bazaar Store.
I have used chalks to colour the image, to give a soft effect.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
