A girl can never have too many bags....

A friend of mine hit a little rough patch and I wanted to cheer her up with a little card...

My original thought was to make a card reflecting this sketch... (Wendy did one too). However, I wanted to use my darling little purse set (I admit it, I am a purse whore and will drool at the thought of stepping foot into the Coach store). Then came the delima...the card wouldn't be big enough and there were only three, not four purses. So I improvised...made the card bigger, like the size you would buy in a chain store. But what to do about the fourth purse...I don't have that darling single purse stamp (yet)...after a little thinking...I had a plan!
Unfortunately, even with making the card bigger, I could only fit three purses. Are you still waiting to see how I made that 4th purse....scroll down!

Do you recognize it? Yup, it's a present from the gifts stamp set! I masked off the bow and added a handle from one of the purses. I just couldn't let it go to waste so I tucked it inside the card.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. Love it inside and out! I can't see any way I would have changed it:-)

  2. Lurve lurve lurve it! I may or may not have just ordered the purses stamps because of you....just sayin'! Way to make me re-prioritize my "wish" list!
