Time For A New Release!


and there's a new Ladybug joining us for the first time today, the lovely Susan, she's a brave lady joining us mad bunch !

You should have found your way here from the lovely Pami's blog, if you haven't you need to make your way back to the "Challenge Blog" to start the hop.

On to my card using the rather gorgeous and girlie,
don't you think it's fabulous!

I coloured the image using Copics and added a computer generated sentiment, I decided to go CAS as the image is so fabulous that a complicated layout really isn't necessary.

I just added a little glossy accents and a touch of silver gel pen to some of the clasps.

Now I'm going to let you into a secret, I am not the kind of girl that has a handbag for every outfit and the nearest I have ever got to a designer handbag is the one I was given on my birthday from Clarkes so hardly designer lol! 
 Seeing the lovely range hanging from my tree, got me googling"Designer Handbags"
Boy oh boy was I shocked at how much a designer handbag would set a fashionable girlie back, shocking, when you think that you can be the proud owner of these beauties here for only £1.75

Want to know which one's my favourite?

It just has to be this one, perfect for every Christmas party, I need one!

The next stop on the hop is Michele but before you leave to admire the gorgeousness of her creation you need to make a note of my letter!

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
CBN1, Anything goes,
Lollipop 84, Christmas,
MIM96, Anything goes,
PanPastel 25, Use a digi,
Paper Players 102, Christmas,
The Ribbon Girl, Girlie,(you wouldn't see a boy holding these beauties)
Squirrel And Fox 21, Christmas,

Thanks for stopping by,

p.s. before you go, you might like to read this,

Andrea said...

what a cute and girly card..every girls dream ..BAGS ;-))) the stamps are ace ,im off hopping thanks

Marianne said...

I agree with you that this image is perfect for a CAS card (very handy when you have to create many LOL). After reading Kerry's comment I realised that I, too, had mistaken the top bag for an ornament. Designer bags are not my thing either. I think it's so silly to pay a fortune in order to show off a particular brand name. They should be paying us for all the free publicity, don't you agree?
