Creative Cottage Challenge Blog Week 2 - Flowers

Happy Wednesday morning, Wednesday again, can you believe that? where did Monday and Tuesday go? It was a gorgeous spring day yesterday, with lovely sunshine and no need to wear a coat! unfortunately today hasn't started off so well, its much cooler, and as yet the sun has yet to make an appearance.
I have to do the grocery shopping this morning, lucky me - NOT!!! why does everyone eat so much??? Might have to treat myself to some nice cream cakes, to lift my otherwise low mood. Comforting eating isn't good for you - but it tastes nice!!!
I can not believe we are half way through March already, and i have lost my urge to get ahead with my christmas cards, i must find some inspiration somewhere, please help!!! otherwise i can see it being another mad dash in December, with me having to buy some ready made brought cards - gasp, horror!!!
Right im rambling, onto business,

Its week 2 at the Creative Cottage Challenge Blog, we are thrilled with the response that we have had so far to our new challenge. Becky has done a marvelous job at getting this blog up and running and we hope to see you join in with us each week. As you know you do not have to use the Creative Cottage products, but of course it would be a bonus if you do!

I have used one of my favourite Creative Cottage Kits called Bags of Style. Available to buy here.

These papers are just great, in tones of pink and black! my favourite combination.
I have made this card for my friend Sally's birthday which was yesterday. She loves bags and shoes, this card has a bit of a twist!

As you know i love these easel cards, who doesn't?

If you life the handle of the bag, you pull out another small bag/purse.

The first bag has been put on 3d pads to give dimension and to take the additional bag/purse!

This purse opens and has been embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder to make it look like leather!

And although i havn't shown it here, ive added a Marks and spencers voucher inside.

I hope you like my card this week, and will join us with week 2 at our challenge blog.

I look forward to visiting you and seeing what you come up with this week, enjoy your week, hugs Linda x
