Just A Bit of Sunshine!

Posting a bit of sunshine as the sun starts peeping out here in the Midwest.
We are hoping the ice finally melts on our back patio today!

There is just something about the combo of bright sunny yellow and black.
This is Garden Riley with Bo Bunny Dots and Black Magic
Coredinations paper that has been embossed with Swiss Dots. 
The clouds were made with the Cloud Stenciling Kit from Great Impressions
and the new Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
A bit of pen stitching with a Tombow marker and some twine
complete the card.

Then I just had to make something special for Sophie.  So
here is a little treat purse. 
Just big enough to hold a special treat.  How about
Butterscotch candies?

This is from the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge.  Purse is
 the Flowers 9 pattern cut at 6". 
Flowers are Flowers 4 (with shift key) cut at 2 1/2 and 2.
I used my circle Spellbinder Nesties to cut the white circle
for Sophie.
I usually stamp first then center what I want to cut in the
circle then cut it out.

 I actually cut two and cut off the sides from one to
emboss and glued them on the full purse.  This helped
strengthen the handle as well. 

I lightly sanded the swiss dots embossing with the Tim Holtz
sanding block.  Paper again is Bo Bunny Dots and
Black Magic Coredinations.

I added a bit of Crystal Stickles to the yellow flower for
sparkle.  Sophie's dress is actually stamped on the
Bo Bunny paper and cut out then glued on stamped image. 

I think I love this Cricut cartridge! 
Keep in mind the purses cut pretty smallon 12 x12 paper.
This Flowers 9 purse is acutally the largest cut at 6".

Stay tuned for more purses. I have cut some others
but they are smaller so let's see what I can fit on the front of them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Well Therese, you have done it again. I love your projects and I am so glad I was up late to read the MB and see your blog.

Love all the Riley stamps and of course my favs are the camping ones. :) Thanks for sharing!
