Today I want to welcome my new downline Jenny - congrats on becoming a demo Jenny, I know you'll have lots of fun! Here's a card I made for her using the Bloomin With Beauty set.

I coloured the flower with Copics and pierced around the edges using the Crafter's Tool kit. The tag is a Spellbinders ribbon tag die, stamped with 'congratulations' from the Sale-A-Bration Congratulations set.

(All supplies Stampin Up unless otherwise stated)

Stamps - Bloomin With Beauty/Congratulations
Ink - Memento black
Card/Papers - Whisper White/Real Red/So Saffron/So Saffron DSP
Other - Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon/scallop edge punch/spellbinders ribbon tags/red brads/Crafter's Tool Kit/Copic markers

Jenny's also tagged me with a fun game - to show the bag/purse we were using on the day we were challenged. So here's mine - nothing fancy, but nice and roomy and I love grey at the moment. And yep if you thought it looked like a doctor's bag that's exactly what it is (well not a real one, the design obviously, no stethoscopes in mine lol!)

In addition to the normal junk it always contains:

-My iPod
-A Leica digital camera
-Philosphy lip gloss (Raspberry Sorbet - yumm!)
-several pens (they seem to breed in there!)
-Moleskine notebooks - one of my favourite things. I have several, all over the place - I love that Bruce Chatwin used these when he was documenting his travel around the world. I'm forever jotting down ideas for work, quotes, to-do lists, and of course ideas and inspirations for paper-crafting.

Play along if you want - tell us a bit about your bag/purse!

Have a great weekend everyone and hope to see you again soon!

Fab card Kate! I must have good taste as my bag is very similar to yours *wink*! I'd love to join in with the bag game but fear that I'd have so much junk to record it'd overload my blog data quota lol! Stampin' Hugs, Aimes x
