Happy Monday!!! I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was warm here which was a very nice break from the cold. Yesterday the rain began and it looks like rain for the next few days as well. Oh I am so looking forward to the sunshine!

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to see that the featured stamper for the week on Splitcoast is none other than my dear friend and design team sister Judy!!! Yeah Judy! Congratulations!! You so deserve it!! Of course I had to take this opportunity and case one of her cards. She is such a sweetheart and so talented too!!! One of Judy's favorite colors is pink so I chose one of her pink cards to case. I kept her layout. I changed the stamps from Pocket Silhouettes to You are the Potter from Our Daily Bread Designs . I also added dry embossing, distressing, buttons, and changed my sewing, sentiment, and ribbon treatment. I macramed the craft hemp to keep with a more Southwestern feel. I also added a doodle flourish to meet the challenge of the OCCC challenge for this week.

My second project was for today's technique lover's challenge and the OCCC challenge for this week. I have never made a treat purse before. It was a lot of fun and I had the opportunity to use my brand new Parisian Breeze paper. I love this paper and I can see this being one of the papers I want to hoard. I also incorporated a doodle using Blue awning chipboard. The flowers are punched out using the Boho Blossom punch. I punched out the butterfly from some Baja Breeze DP. I plan on sending this cute little purse to a dear friend that has been struggling a little lately. Since she is diabetic and a stampaholic I thought I would send her some yummy ribbon, brads, buttons, prima, eyelet, and etc. I hope it brings a smile!
