Sketchy Thursday cards....and FINALLY the BAG!!! {another giveaway}

Hello, friends:}


I've got a couple of things to share today--I just love Sketchy Thursdays! I love their challenges [scrapbook layouts]...but by the time I figure out what I'm going to do and print the pics....I've missed the deadline! I need to have pics printed ahead of the time:} Lesson learned. HOWEVER...this week was a card challenge! GET OUT:) Right up my alley! So I created two pics based on this sketch. I loooooooooooove this first one. I love these papers (I used them on two other cards--can't get enough of those soft peach and yellows with that green ticket! LOVE it). I used Unity's August 09 butterfly with Ippity's Thoughts from the Past and Regal Greetings {the sentiment}. The pic doesn't show it very well--but that butterfly is stamped in light yellow on kraft! BEAUTIFUL in person! Love these colors! 
My next card was created by rotating the sketch. I love making these envelope flaps--only this time I didn't attach the string and eyelet. I used Unity's ledger stamp (on grid paper--it looks cool) along with the snail from Naturally You and the sentiment from Jan. KOTM. LOVE it--I do wish that my pics wouldn't show the teal so bright! It is softer in person--taking pics inside after dark is not always the best:) 
That's it for cards today...but I promised to bring you pics of my new bag last week....and GUESS WHAT?? I got two of them in the mail! I actually did a review for CSN stores a couple of weeks ago. I picked this bag--LOVE LOVE LOVE that grey with mustard color! I love the size and that feel of the bag--it looks almost suede but it is more nylon something! All I know is that I LOOOOOOOOOVE it! I am actually shocked at the size and the amount it holds--look at all these pics of the inside! FAB! Love the price too--$52!! ACK--so glad I got it:} This bag is called Baggallini. I would give this bag 12 out of 10! LOVE it that much:}
 
In that first pic--I was telling Trav how much I love love love this bag! He caught me in the act:}
 
LOOK at all that room--there are two side sections and a a zippered pocket between the two! ACK-love love love it:}

I originally was going to get this bag from Chinese Laundry. I looooove this bag too. I just love how it looks. Unfortunately, I waited too long and CSN was sold out. So I searched the internet....found one....bought it! LOVE it! I am disappointed in the size--it is SUPER HUGE! I thought it was small like the Baggallini. Not so!  SUPER huge. I just love the feel of this bag too. I'd give this bag a 9 out of 10
 
Thanks to Trav for taking my pics. I just hate getting pics taken...but he is always fun to work with:}


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you are doing well--and to make your day sweeter like mine was with two new purses...how about you head on over to CSN stores and come back and tell me what you would buy! I will pick one random winner on Friday at noon (or around then!). The winner will get a random Ippity stamp set [with a few of extra goodies like I always send out]!! So that's two chances to win--1. leave a comment about my cards and 2. visit CSN stores and come tell me what you like! HOOORAY for giveaways:}


Thanks again! Be blessed!
