It's a Girl Thing...

I have always loved everyone's take on the gift card holder purse and decided to make one myself. I wasn't quite sure about the dimensions but wanted to utilize as much as I could of the paper. I ended up with 4 different sizes and overall I was happy with the end results.
Paper is from Stampin' Up "Junior Varsity"
Stamps are from Paper Trey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages"
Scalloped & Circle punches are from Stampin' Up
Ribbon & Velcro are from JoAnn's
I also used one of the marquees from the Storybook Cricut cartridge for the flap on the purse and used a small piece of velcro to keep it fastened.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

OMG...has it been this long?!?

Just a quick little note to my "blogging buddies"...The month of October has come and gone and not one single post from me, it's definitely been a crazy-craft-free month!! My father had a terrible fall on October 3rd and was in the trauma unit at one of the local hospitals. He had some bleeding in the brain, fractures on his neck and spine, broken bones on his face and a broken arm. He is home now and doing much better but still has a long road to a full recovery. We are very thankful for the many prayers and well wishes we have received...the power of prayer is truly amazing!

I have missed visiting everyone's blogs and plan on catching up ASAP! Can't wait to see what you "crafty" gals have been up to. Hope yall are having a great week! =)
