Mama's Purse Peeker

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend.  We traveled to Pittsburgh to attend my cousin's funeral. En-route we learned our daughter-in-laws grandmother passed. I'll tell ya, it's been a heck of a year for us with cancers and death and hopefully this will be the last.  Today, I got up and said "this is my day!"  Since my hubby works at home 3 days a week and he was gone today....well, let the cat play! I drank my coffee on the deck, played with my dogs and made this very pretty card! It's the first time, since the beginning of June, I have been relaxed and it felt soooo good! Life is way to short not to enjoy it.

This sweet card was made with "Mama's Purse Peeker," isn't she adorable!?! She is from the Peeker's Collection 2 set by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamps! What little girl does not love playing in mama's purse? And, you think she is adorable, you should see the rest of the set! Each one is more adorable then the other one!  For the first time I paper pieced (her purse) and it is so easy to do! Lots of fun too!

  • Design Paper: Echo Park, Victoria: Yummy, yummy paper pad!
  • Copics: Hair: E57, E55, E31, E51. Rose: R37, R35, R32, Dress: BG75, BG72, BG70, G000. Skin: E21, E00, E000. Money: YG61, G10. 
  • Flower: left bottom; Prima Flower, Flewurs de Prima, pretty for they have gold tip glittery edges! 
  • Flower, right top: Prima 
  • Nestability:  Labels 14. 
  • Leaves: Marianne Design Creatable Dies: Open Flowers Trendy
TIP OF THE DAY:  If your paper is not colored through all of the layers, it will show white on the side edges, after being cut. Glide the edge of  your paper over a similar colored ink pad and you won't believe how much better it looks!
