Beautiful Wings

Good morning everyone! I just want to say that I had SO much fun yesterday making those rag purses with Becky! We went shopping to find fabric and get the other necessary supplies. I got so overwhelmed in the fabric store that I almost walked out with nothing. But then I found some that caught my eye and I am so glad that I got some! I did forget to get a button for my closure so I will have to go look for one today and then I can sew that on and the handles and then it will be done! I will be sure to post a picture as soon as it gets done. I was really apprehensive at first as it has been YEARS since I have done any kind of sewing (you might even say decades)! The great thing about these purses is that they are supposed to have that "rag" look so it is not supposed to be perfect. Whew!! And thanks to Sherry who came at just the right moment to help me with the bottom of my purse so the corners would come out right. Too fun!!

Today's card inspiration comes from Cindy Beach. She did this card and I fell in love with the layout! I just had to try something like that on my own. So here is what I came up with. Super easy!! Thanks for stopping by and have super day!!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Herb Expressions; Paper- So Saffron, Rose Red, Whisper White, Taken With Teal, Sweet Pea designer paper; Ink- Taken With Teal, Rose Red; Accessories- Beautiful Wings embosslit, linen thread, button latte, scallop border punch, dimensionals
