I was stumped at first then decided to make this purse/handbag card. You write your sentiment on the back of the purse/handbag, then pop your prezzie inside..Voila 2 birds killed with one stone. Gift Bag & card in one!
The main flower was handmade using the EK Success Retro flower punches.
I hope you like it. If so, please leave a comment.

I made up 3 cards just to show how versatile Copics are but couldn't use a Magnolia stamp(shock/horror) as "it is better to use stamps they can buy in the store". Sound advice but oh so cruel to not let me colour a Tilda.
So I did these 3 stamps. The ribbon & rhinestones were coloured with Copics as well.
I haven't coloured this style of stamps before (the flower & butterfly) so still not too sure about them. Let me know what you think.
I made 2 kinds..the one little red one is made from stinky grunge paper and using the new Tim Holtz flowers die from sizzix.
The other is doing it as he shows here: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/12/12-tags-of-christmasday-12.html
So here are my first 4 roses...these little buggars are addictive so I have more cut out ready to go.

Ok so I didn't make the Belles & Whistles DT but the people that did are true artists so well done to them all.
Today I missed the Magnolias Down Under Blog # 45 Paper Tole Challenge but I decided to post my entry here anyways. Next week if I take part I will be on time.
So without further ado..my first Criss Cross Card.

You know what they say, "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I only have this one B & W stamp so I stamped her up and coloured her with Copics. I used Basic Grey Sugared 6x6 pad for the card.
The card is a diorama and you can email me to get the instructions should you wish to try one for yourself.
They are super fun and super easy. I have even made a cut file so that my Cricut does all the work for me. This leaves me more time to spend on the colouring and finishing.
The B & W DT call is here...go and have a look at some of the other entrants.
