Happy Easter and aThank You Card and Purse

Hi Everyone, Well, we are back from Japan and still trying to get rid of this jet lag.  It was a tough flight back...not must leg room on the 8 hour flight.  All in all, it was about 24 hours before I was able to get to bed and have a sleep and even today I was up at 3:30 am, so will see what today brings.

I still have some photos to share of our trip and will do that in later posts.  Today, I have another Thank You card and purse that I made for my Monthly Club Ladies.

Paper: Textured and Smooth Whisper White, Soft Suede, Peach Parfait, Attic Boutique DSP

Isn't that little purse the cutest thing?  It is the new die that is available for the month of April...a sneak peek at a new product from the 2012-13 catalogue.  
Stampin' Up! is changing the calendar dates for the catalogues.  The 2012-13 catalogue will be available June 1st, so that mean the current catalogue expires on May 31st.  I will have the dates for the retired items shortly. 
Now, I need to go to my stamping room to finish up my Easter cards and baskets.  

Until next time....

  7. Karen this is just too sweet. I LOVE your card and the oval embossing is fabulous! I think this is one of my favorites of your's so far! LOVE that little purse. The DSP looks so stylish and girlish too. I am making them for table favors for my next class. Too cute.
    Hope your jet lag goes away soon. I know I'm whipped from the work travel and it takes me longer and longer to get back to 'normal' anymore... getting old stinks! Hugs.
