They followed me home...really, they did!

Hey, hey; how are you? It's been a crazy week at our house; I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday. I won't bore you with all the details; but I'm serious - it's been crazy!

I got some new stamping toys in the mail this week; I should give this card to my best friend - I believe she is addicted to purses, shoes and watches. :D Seriously - she is!

One of my new gadgets was a thin cut sizzlet...I know, most of the people reading this blog are thinking "what the heck is that"!! It works with my big shot which I love; but I've only used it for dry embossing until last night. I hadn't ever used a die cut...till last night at 11 p.m.! I had to watch Private Practice b4 I could play.

So all day I've been thinking about this card. I used my big shot to cut the 3 patterned purses last night; the paper is Stampin' Up's cutie pie. I'm always like a season behind - have you noticed? Most people are breaking out their fall colors - not me; I'm still hanging with summer for as long as I can!

Anyway, I cut 3 more purses out of black cardstock tonight b4 the volleyball game and put the entire card together. I like the way the black kind of shadows the purses. The middle purse is glued down flat; but the other two are raised with dimensionals. Click on the picture for a closer view.

The base card is Certainly Celery layered with SU's Cutie Pie DP. I then cut a small strip of Apricot Appeal (I think?) and dry embossed it (also with my big shot) and then put it all together. The saying across the bottom is from Stamping Bella (love her stamps) and says "they followed me home..."; that's what you say when you come home with 3 PURSES instead of just one! LOL

Hope you're having a fabulous week; enjoy the weekend and sneak in some quiet time for yourself and rejuvenate! Thanks for stopping by! ~M.
