A Crafty Sunday!

  Its been another cold day here today so I have stayed in my craft room and made a couple of cards.  This first one is using my favourite stamp of the moment the Greetings set from Hero Arts.  I really love the design its so versatile and you can never have enough Thank You cards.

I have made this for the "Patterned Paper" challenge over at The Lily Pad and also the CAS-ual Friday challenge of "Paper Piecing".
































This card is for my lovely daughters 24th Birthday next week, she has an obsession with handbags and has a vast collection of them including some vintage bags that she has found at charity shops and car boot sales.  Hence the bag shaped card, its quite a simple design but I know she will love it.

Just a quick post as I must catch up on lots of my favourite blogs. Thank you all for the lovely comments about my last post and my Paper Craft rejects, I am going to keep trying!!!
