The Purse

I will confess that I am still not sure what I think about this one. I stayed up pretty late working on this last night and by the time I went to bed I was pretty sure I would wake up and go with plan B. ...and true to form, I spent all night thinking of what I needed to do to make this 'right'. I solved that...or so I thought...and still thought I would go with plan B as this took an eternity! and I have to start working on a little something for Angie.

Not sure what was up when I came downstairs this morning but when I looked at it with fresh eyes, well, I decided it wasn't as bad as I thought. Granted, it's still not quite 'right'...but not necessarily 'wrong' either. I hate when that happens! I added my little tag and here you go...my purse for Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge.....I made this big enough for either a chocolate bar...what gal doesn't need, er love!, chocolate or a gift card. It's super small! Part of what bugged me last night was that I thought I had gold brads. I really wanted to have the little nail heads. Of course, if I have them they are -?????- I put my purse in the background to show the inspiration but like I said yesterday...it's ginormous! There is only a little snippet of it. What ever possessed me!

Thanks so much, Sharon, for another fun challenge! Now I have got to start on Angie's thing...she leaves in just a few days! How sad is that! I will so miss her.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday and I will post you all soon!

Take care! :)
