For My Awesome Friend

Hello, my friends!

Okay, so I couldn't resist in making a couple of cards while working on my special projects. hehe Card making is just too addicting!

I made this set for one of my awesome friends. Her birthday is coming up so I thought I better get it done so she will get it on or before her birthday. If you know me, I have a really bad habit of sending stuff out the very last minute,,,okay, USUALLY late! I intend to get this out by Wednesday, Thursday the latest.

I accidentally came across Flourishes site and saw a sketch I totally love so I just have to follow it! I used my new Birthday Present Rosie stamp from La La Land Crafts. Isn't she just darling?

I made this matching bag/purse to put a couple of La La Land Crafts stamps in. Guess how I made this bag? :D I unfolded an empty cookie box and used it as a template! well, I did reduce the size, not with the scanner, just with my head and the good old ruler. hehe So yup, I don't have a template for this one, so this is the one and only one. I will probably make a template for future reference.
Anyway, I am entering this set for
KLSNS: Buttons
Crafty Cardmakers: A feminine celebration
Stamp Something: Something Girly
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle: Open
Flourishes: sketch

Well, my friends, I hope you all enjoy looking at my project! Please leave me a comment if you stop by! I would love to hear from you all! Thanks so much!
