It is such a dreary day here in the Thumb of Michigan. We have any rain for 4 days straight and things are getting a bit soggy including my stamp room. Yes, our basement has water and it almost nevers gets as far as my stamp room, but this time it has. I know things could be much worse and for so many it is. Complete devastation in the south and many places around our world so I won't complain. Well not too much anyhow. *grin* My hubby is here to help clean so that is a great help and I can now get some business work done.
So to take a break from all the what I call, "not so fun stuff", I've got somethings to share with you. So let's get going. This first one is a purse pattern I found on line. I believe it was on a challenge on SCS. I just knew I wanted to bling it up a bit so I adde lots of rhinestones. It's hard to tell by the picture, but I made score lines on the diagonal and then added my rhinestones to the center points. Cut a piece of the soon to be released Beyond the Garden DSP, punched it with the Eyelet Border Punch and than ran it through the Paper Crimper to make it a little more pliable to add to the curved top of the purse. The flower is stamped and cut out from the soon to be released Fabulous Florets stamp set. This would make a fun way to give a gift. Wouldn't a teenager just love this with maybe a gas card included? (ok, maybe it would be cheaper to buy them a fine piece of jewelry). LOL! Anyway, you could fill it with lots of goodies.
