A HOSTESS GIFT WITH MOJO MONDAY

Hi all!! I am really busy today getting ready for a large workshop I have tomorrow making Valentines, but I wanted to share the hostess gift I made for my wonderful friend Wendy who is hostessing. I wanted to make her something really cute so I decided on a Top Note purse with matching card. I also filled the little purse with chocolate goodies - every gal needs chocolate:-). I decided that I just had to use that last sheet of my Sending Love DSP since it was the only pattern I had not played with yet, LOL! And, the Love Bandit stamp set was a must for this one - it is sooooo cute!!! I want to share each piece of this with you so I will start with the card which is actually based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch. And, I did the inside of the card using some of my rub-ons from the Loop to Loop package(retired, but I love them!!) which was the Way To Use it Challenge at Stampin' Connection. Lots of punches used on this card and I even used some of my corduroy buttons!!
And, here is a close-up of the Top Note purse that I made - this is probably one of my favorite little bags to make because it comes together so easily and there are sooo many variations you can do and they all look so cute!! So, I am off to finish cutting my kits and working on some projects that I need for upcoming classes! If you are interested in any of my workshop or class projects, and want to make them for yourself, please send me an email - I have them all available as kits to go as well!! Take care all and have a wonderful day - thanks so much for stopping by!!
