A bunch of 365's

I seem to have a bit of catching up to do, so here we have the card for Wednesday when I was in Bath, plus yesterday's and today's all from 365 Cards.
Today's challenge, Day 216, is an Ad Inspiration, and these tote bags are the subject.
I really rather like all of them, but a piece of spotty black paper was staring at me so I went with the one on the right. The birds are from my Unity Stamp KOM for September, which arrived on the 1st October!!! The turquoise paper is a scrap from Pink Petticoat

Day 215 entitled 4 Elements, had to have four separate sections depicting Fire, Water, Earth & Air. I spotted that one roll of ribbon was entitled Elements, which gave me the idea for this card.

Day 214 was White space where this sketch had to be followed. The blacked out portions of the card are the only parts where anything can be added. This is my interpreation, using Cuddly Buddly paper, sentiment and image.

I think I'm all caught up now. I've got to get ready to go the Bath for the weekend for a spot of babysitting whilst my daughter and her husband attend a wedding (the one I did my last lot of stationery for). She is to be a bridesmaid for the first time and is really excited. Grandpops is coming too this time, so he is really looking forward to spending time with Daisy.
