Hello friends...

Here are a few PURSE cards I've made.  The flap of the purse is made from a Marianne Creatables die, Anja's Vintage Decoration. 

The embossed card I used on the purses is from the range of CRISTINA RE papers.  On the top card I have used two different dies to make the roses.  1. Die-namics Royal Roses  2. Impression Obsession - Spiral Flowers.  On the bottom card I have used my own ULTIMATE ROSE.

Also, here are two sample purses I made...  this Vintage Decoration die can be used in so many ways.. these purses are just one.

 The black purse was made from an embossed paper I had.  I cannot remember the brand or name.  The white purse was embossed using the Couture Creations Embossing Folder - Tied Together.

Another purse I made using a similar die was this one using a Memory Box die - Delicate Butterfly Arch.  This die was much more delicate to work with but still looked good.
I've added the beading for a handle thus making it more like a handbag. The corners are from Joy Crafts - Frame & 3 Corners.  The background paper is one I've picked up on my travels.
I always have my eyes open for pretty papers... you should see my collection Yes indeed, I'm a sucker for my papers... oh and also pretty pastel cardstock.  

I promised a surprise and I apologise it's late... but trust me, it's coming.  Without telling you what it is, it does involve a video and my problem has been that the lighting in my house isn't good.  This is due to the fact that we have two enormous windows with make it too light... so I have put a dark blind on one of the windows... maybe I'll need to get another one.  We'll see, I shall be trying it out tomorrow.  Please be patient with me, I know I can get slack but I do live with constant pain and it more often than not dictates my life and how my days are.  However, I do try and I'm determined to start doing videos for you all.

Love... Angie
