Gift Card Purse & some news

Hi ladies, hope you had a wonderful weekend! I will have more photos up today, so i would like to keep my text short.

The other day i was at Starbucks and thought about my friend, who’s really busy getting her stuff done before the holidays and i know she loves Starbucks. Who can not use a little boost while shopping and staying in line :-)
So here is my little card purse – i used Lili of the Valley’s cute teddy “Jenny bear – all shopped outwith it.
Now, as you know there are different ways to keep things like this closed.. Velcro or the tiny magnets. I did no have any magnets and i do not really like the look of Velcro. My flap holds shut with the rather stiff felt ribbon, i placed just so it would overlap the circle a little bit.
simple inside… i could have decorated here even more… at some point i wanted to add some scallops to the opening. I just ran out of crafting time :-)
Alright.. here is an other shot :-) Now for the exciting news… you have to visit today and tomorrow the Lili of the Valley blog! Tomorrow the DT will start showing images with the very new January 2011 stamp release and i can tell you… they are SUUUUPER cute. You will love them 20!!! new stamps!
Papers: Stampin up Design Paper
Other: Spellbinders dies, Stampin up Top Note die
Sentiments: Magnolia (inside) and Whimsy Postmark stamp.
How to make the purse, can be found here, i extended the size to i believe 8 inches so i would be able to use a bigger focal point image.

Absolutely adorable! Amazing coloring and I love all the little details! I can't wait to see all the new images. :) (I'm just a tad jealous that you get to design for them! But, of course, you are totally deserving! Everything you create is simply amazing!) Have a great Christmas!
