Handbag Card for Polkadoodles

This week on Polkadoodles the challenge is blossoms. I chose to make a handbag card with papers printed from the new All Around and Everywhere CD. I cut out some flowers from a sheet of the paper to pop up and decorate the bag, and threaded some beads for the handle


The 'clasp' of the bag has a tiny sentiment sticker on it which doesn't show very well in the photo. Be sure to pop over to see what the rest of the design team have come up with.

I am bleary eyed today, having stayed up half the night to watch the nail biting results of our election back home in the UK. We made sure we had a postal vote before we left for the US. Whatever the final result, I wish the new government wisdom, and a hefty dose of common sense as they try to get our country back on it's feet again.
We are off to get some sand between our toes for a couple of days, driving down to Anna Marie island to see some friends from the UK who are on holiday there.
