New handbag, anyone?

Hello, and welcome!

How has your day been?  I sometimes wish we could see each other through the computer, and I could gauge what kinda mood you're in, but.....when I think some more....maybe that wouldn't be a nice experience for either of us, lol!

Had some time to play.........and here's the result :D.........

Just felt in the mood for a handbag........didn't have a particular recipient (oo, big words) in mind, so will probs be one of those "just in case" cards, lol...........

Had a try at making my own flowers.....never learn, do I?......and used really small scraps that almost went into the bin.......I did a doodle of a flower, then did a smaller one....cut 'em out and used 'em as templates to cut more........scrunched them up......used a black glaze pen to make dots on the pink ones, and lightly inked the white ones with pink ink.........put Card Candi in the centres.....

Here I am with the lace again, and this pretty white is even prettier with the pearls and sequins (already on there...I'm not that clever).....

Not sure I should have taken a close-up of the flowers.........

and I was hoping this close-up would let ya see the lovely texture on the black lace.....

and there you have it.....I really like this colour 'bout you?


Anything but square or rectangle
