I hope you are having a great weekend and that you have a Happy Easter with family and friends.  I’ve been getting ready all day.  The casseroles are ready to assemble and bake tomorrow, the ham is in the fridge, the brownies, cookies and treats are made, the tables are set, the eggs have been filled and the baskets are ready.  I have laundry to finish and final cleaning to do and I’ll be all ready.

But for today I have one cute little purse to share – we made these last night at my stamp club meeting.

This is the new Petite Purse Die – a sneak peek from the new catalog – you can get it now during the month of April and then it will be available in our new catalog starting June 1st!  These are so cute.

I made this one as a little Easter purse.  The purse is cut from Crumb Cake card stock, then I cut an extra front panel and ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder and glued that to the front.   I cut the back and flap out a second time with some designer paper – the new Summer Smooches Designer Series paper – also available as a sneak peek in April – I used the piece that had the Tangerine Tango print.  The purse is assembled with a little bit of sticky strip on the two side flaps.

The handle is cut along with purse and I glued it to the back side of a piece of Tangerine Tango scalloped polka dot ribbon.  Then attached the ends inside the purse with a little piece of sticky strip.

I added a “Happy Easter” tag to the handle and a little button to the front flap.  Finally I stamped the little bunny from the Every Bunny stamp set on some Naturals White card stock using black StazOn ink and Watercolored with an AquaPainter.  The bunny is Crumb Cake and the scarf is Daffodil Delight.  For the egg I stamped the image on a scrap piece of the same designer paper and cut it out and glued it on top of the watercolored image.  The cut out bunny is then attached to the front of the little purse with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Inside the purse is none other than a yummy Peanut Butter Egg!

And I checked the bird house this morning and we have babies!

See TWO babies ready to eat!

There were 5 eggs and mom was watching me so I only took a quick peek and got this pictures showing the 2 babies – I don’t know if the others hatched yet.  I’ll check again in a day or so. These are the chickadees.

And one more picture to share with you today.  In my craft room I have two dogs beds for the dogs but they are different and they both always prefer the one the other one is in.  So on Friday Magnolia was in the dog bed and all of sudden Aspen hops in and lays down and she gives me this look – “Mom, look what he did…….”


I hope you enjoyed the cute little project and the fun pictures.  Have a great Easter Sunday and I’ll be back next week.
