Mom's Purse Card Set... {H2H Challenge}... and we're finally moving!

The Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog is celebrating Mom this week!

I created this pretty card purse for Mom (tho I don't have any Mom's anymore, so I guess it's for me???) for the challenge.  I followed Amy Celona's Stationery Box Pocketbook tutorial for the purse.

Here's some close-ups:

I also created an assortment of 5 cards to place inside the purse:




Thank You

Wedding (or Anniversary)


This is my last post for a little while, as we are finally moving into our new home tomorrow.  No internet or phone or satellite TV has been hooked up yet... yikes.  So I'll be coming back to our old house to work online for the next while.


Happy creating!  :)

Oh. My. Flippity. Flip! I love these cards and purse, but the purse just knocked my socks off. Good luck on the move. How fun for you to finally get to live in that beautiful home!

That purse is absolutely gorgeous! It's a shame that I know my mom wouldn't appreciate it or I would make it for her. Guess I'll just have to one for myself for Mother's Day! =)

Vicki, the cards are wonderful - now I NEED that paper pack! LOL Seriously, very, very pretty - I love the little touch of red that you used to give just a "pop".

So happy for you moving into your new home!!
