A peek at some of today's workshop....

Hola chica's COMO ESTAN?.... hope you all had a great Sunday afternoon.. I had a workshop today and we made this lovely dress card. I got the template for the nugget purse but I don't have the dress one SORRY.. :( from my new friend Yvonne Metz she has some great projects to check out.. I used CTMH hollyhock CS for the dress and stamped it with the CTMH adorable stamp set. I used hollyhock and chocolate ink . The purse on dress was punched from a tab punch that I got at Michael's and I used my Nestie's for the purse handle and the collar. I signed up for the VIP monthly coupon that they offer!! boy what a savings on my set.. I LOVE MY NESTIE'S!! can't wait to get another set..!! For the nugget purse I used the CTMH BT from the more to adore L2 paper pack . I used one of my decorative corner punches on the front flaps of the purse . I punched out a 1/2 inch circle from vanilla cream CS and stamped it with the smallest flower in the set with hollyhock and pierced a hole in the center added a small pink brad and placed it in the center of the front flap of purse.. I used a small piece of adhesive velcro that I cut from a full strip for the closure..Inside the chocolate nuggets are covered with the CTMH L2 BT as well ... QUE BELLA !! this is a very cute Mother's day card to give.. I hope you like it.... :) the girls really did... have a great night..
