A Gift Bag With A Difference

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
This is a double post for House Mouse and Prickley Pear
So here's a reminder for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Lorraine's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Anything Goes." - So you can make anything, using anything, as long as you use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.  I made another gift bag but with a difference, I thought this would be a nice little gift for someone who is suffering with a cold and a sore throat, there's some throat lozengers, tissues, vapour rub and cold and flu powders.  Maybe not an exciting gift to give but it might help them to recovery.  Here's a closer look.

I used this great image HMJR1055 Birdie Doctor, teamed with one of the paper pads from LOTV, Baskets & Bunnies.  I love altering paper gift bags, and homemade ones make the gift seem that bit more personal.
