Purse pocket for cards

 this was my big secret that i created for the club gals as well! i sewed chip boards in there so it will protect the cards inside if they choose to put it in their purse! That was my intention. sometimes it's just nice to have a card at your finger tips and this is a perfect way to carry them! Each gal, got a glitter letter in their first initial on the front! I sewed these using the super pretty fabric, deck the halls.

BBQ neighborhood invite

what a dashing little grill we have here eh? well i can't say the bbq stamps are su! saddly, but they are something i bought a LONG long time ago and dusted off to make these! perfect for the situation;) the salutation "you're invited" is su! from the cute set really retro(now retired). first i stamped my grill in basic black. took my aqua painters and some cherry cobbler on the tips to color them in. after they dried nicely i filled in the grills w/ crystal effects. so cute, you can't help but touch if you were the recipient....
the cute red checkered dsp is from the pkg Love letters DSP and of course some black ribbons.

don't forget to sign up for the Pretty Card Keeper Box Class coming up on Sept 27! Deadline is Sept 9 to sign up! See post below for more details...

Happy Stamping!
