"Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge"

Hi today is the October blog hop over at
The theme is using non traditional Holiday colour schemes I have chosen the above colours for mine.

I made a gift box with 6 cards and 6 matching Tags .

Have taken a few pictures to try and capture some of the detail.

I love making little gifts for other people so I am going to give this set to a friend or one of my sisters
