CARD PURSE FOR MOTHERS DAY OR BIRTHDAY

I HAVE A CUTE CARD I HAVE CASED FROM SEVERAL OTHER BLOG SITES LIKE MY FRIEND DEE SLATER AND ANOTHER I FOUND ON LINE FROM BONNIE.  THANKS, GALS!!

OF COURSE I HAD TO CHANGE IT UP A BIT BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT CREATIVITY MEANS, RIGHT??

IT IS A CARD IN THE SHAPE OF A PURSE, WITH A HANDLE, CLOSURE, ETC.:

 I USED LUCKY LIMEADE CARD STOCK AND SCORED IT WITH MY SIMPLY SCORED SO THAT IT FOLDS AND HAS A FLAP.  THEN I ADHERED ICE CREAM PARLOR DSP (ON THE RETIRED LIST AND ON SALE!!) ON THE SHORT FLAP.

I USED THE TOP NOTE DIE AND MY BIG SHOT TO CUT ONLY A PARTIAL DIE CUT SO THAT IT FIT THE FLAP PIECE.

YOU CAN ADD EITHER AN IN COLOR BRAD AS I DID, OR AN ICE CREAM PARLOR BUTTONS.

  HERE IS THE CARD OPENED UP LIKE YOU WOULD OPEN THE PURSE.  I USED BLUSHING BRIDE CS ON THE INSIDE TO PUT THE SENTIMENT.  I USED TWO RETIRING STAMP SETS FOR THE MESSAGE INSIDE.  HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY WISHES IS A HOSTESS SET THAT IS RETIRING, AND THE OTHER SENTIMENT IS FROM CHERISH FRIENDSHIP, ALSO RETIRING.

THE PUNCH BUNCH HOSTESS SET IS THE STAMPED FLOWER, WHICH I PUNCHED OUT WITH THE BLOSSOM PUNCH.  THIS COVERS THE RIBBON CLOSURE THAT GOES AROUND THE BRAD OR BUTTON TO KEEP THE PURSE CLOSED.

THE RIBBON HANDLE IS ALSO FROM THE ICE CREAM PARLOR RETIRING SET AND ON SALE RIGHT NOW AT A BIG DISCOUNT.  I USED MULTIPLE MARKERS TO COLOR IN THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY STAMP TO KEEP IT WITH THE THEME OF ALL THE COLORS IN THE DSP AND RIBBON.  ISN'T IT CUTE?

WINNER WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER:
I PUT ALL THE ENTRANTS FROM OUR BLOG HOP LAST WEEK ONTO PIECES OF PAPER AND MY HUBBY CHOSE ONE AND THE WINNER IS - MARIA V.  HER COMMENT WAS:  "Thanks for the fabulous blog hop and for sharing some great projects!! "  THANKS FOR THE LOVELY COMMENTS AND CONGRATS MARIA!!

Maria will be receiving a fun package of a stamp set, some ribbon, paper and brads that match, as well as a few die cuts and other odds and ends so she can make cards.

THANKS FOR VISITING OUR BLOG HOP LAST WEEK.  KEEP VISITING BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER HOP NEXT MONTH!!

BE CREATIVE AND GET INKY FINGERS Y'ALL!!
