A girl can never have enough .......

Evening everyone

I hope your weekend has got off to a good start?  Mine has, I was actually able to get out of bed for longer than half a hour today, and spent my time making something COMPLETELY different, well different for me, that is.

A friend recently asked me to make several birthday cards for 30 year old girls who all like the usual things -  clothes, shoes, bags etc., and having used my 'Shopping Willow' stamp from Whiff of Joy, about a zillion times lately, I decided to have a go at making a handbag card which I've never attempted before.  I didn't have a template, but had seen something similar in this months Papercraft Inspirations magazine, so drew up my own and made a start.  I kept it pretty simple as I was out of my comfort zone, and for the first time in I can't remember how long, I haven't actually used a nestie!!!!  I was quite pleased with the way it came out, (it actually looks a lot better in the flesh so to speak), and it's given my mojo a bit of a boost too.

Hope you like it.
