A Few Things I've Been Playing With

I made this for the Mojo Monday Sketch this week, you had a choice of making your card square or round. Well for this purse I chose round of course. Also this fits The Digital Tuesday challenge, which was to make Anything But A Card and the sponsor for this week is Odd Girl Stamps and I just happen to have a few of their images. They are too cute. Here is another view. This was pretty easy to figure out how to make really. I just used the two circles, decorated them and then cut a strip 81/2" long by the width that I wanted (1 1/2") plus 1/2"on each side to fold in to glue to the front and back. I cut a handle with a MS punch and there you go. Instant purse/ gift bag.
I added a couple of my button flowers to the handle.

This is the Challenge for Sassy Cheryls Designs this week. The challenge was to do an all white project. The image can be colored however you wish but the rest of the card has to be white. This also fits in with the Caardvarks challenge for this week which called for a monochromatic color scheme.
I used 5 different textured papers for this. Fun hu? And since the word was made of metal I just drybrushed the white paint over. I hope it is okay to have the center image colored with various colors.

Samantha and Logan got to come home last year to celebrate her Dads Birthday. They had a really nice intimate family dinner, Sam and Logan, Ramona and Claudette and KayLynn , , Alisha and her fiance Casey, Sam's brother Jason and Dawn and Gary. It was a great Birthday present for Gary to have all the kids under one roof for his day. I am so happy they had that weekend because ,due to an accident this last October Gary is gone. I feel so bad for all of them. Love that Martha Stewart punch that I used for the green paper.
Sam and KayLynn and Logan playing Peek A Boo. I used a lot of embellishments from a Scrapbooking set that I bought from Costco a year or two ago.

I used small mirrors and colored the edges with Alcohol Inks and then I cut circles with my Spellbinders, circle and wrapped with embroidery thread. The ribbon is pull ribbon which is so much fun to use.

Have a great day everyone and don't forget to stop back for Bugaboo Friday Freebie.
