Thank you gifts

Well am posting this late at night as had one of those ideas where had to put in action or wouldn't bother lol
Made these for my staff as a small thank you gift for all their hard work.
Started off as plain pads ( no covers ) and pencils

Then after a bit of embellishing whilst watching Dredd (new film version) and C.S.I this is the finished result and I even made a extra one

Ingredients used - pads and pencils from The Range, papers used on back of big pads, to cover pencils and small pad from Brenda Pinnick scrapbook kit.
Leafy swirl by Creative Expressions stamped on handmade covers (Rymans card) using memento inks ( rosebud & pear tart ) and thank you is a stampin up stamp.
Card is recycled from dog food boxes and shells from somewhere!
Added some beads,heart charm, ribbon and wooden bird to small pad.
Thanks for all your get well wishes, still feeling rough so might go for a check up but it's only two days now til I finish work so might just hang on x
UPDATE - went to doctors and now have antibiotics for chest infection x
