My mother's day gift...2010

Last Teri's class we learned how to make this purse that can carry cards. It looked really hard...but when you actually put it together, it was pretty easy. I was determined to make another one for my mom...but when it was time to get down to it, I couldn't find the instructions! *panic* what to do...then I took the purse that I made at Teri's and started measuring. here's what mine came to be. I altered mine a bit...I made a closed pocket in the front, of course added my flowers and love that crocheted lace. I added that pearl brad and a computer generated sentiment.
once you open it has two pockets where you can add your cards. I decided to make a few for my mom, so that she doesn't have to ask me every she can have a stash =)
here's my first card...I used Izzy from TGF...she's too cute! can't finish the card without my and I also added bling and stickles. I used my cuttlebug embossing folder to do the backgrounds.
here's my second card...I used Madelynn for this one. I am loving all different colors of crocheted lace, this one I added flowers, pearl bling, MS border daisy fan punch and stickles.
here I wanted to make my cards a little more simple...had to add those cute mini prima roses, used SU sentiments and there you go!
I am so glad that my mom loved her gift. I know that it's the thought that counts but I made sure I added some gift cards in the front pocket =)
we are half way through the week! can't wait for another weekend!

Wow!! Joy this may be your best project ever!! Not only is that purse amazing (and even more amazing that you had to figure it out on your own), but the colors you chose, your coloring, your altered lace (guess I need to get a few more colors in the store *wink*) are all just gorgeous!! Wow!!
