Purses


Laverne and Shirley, Thelma and Louise, Lucy and Ethel, Kate and Allie, Cagney and Lacey, The Golden Girls...good ol' shows that brought to forefront trials and tribulations, successes and failures...friendships that stood the test of time. A good girlfriend will stand by your side no matter what.


Yay! It's time for another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge. I pulled out Birthday Purses and paper pieced one of the purses with the same paper used for the blocks. A Creative Impressions hardware piece tied with ribbon completes the look. This set is perfect for Moxie Fab World's Celebrating Relationships Challenge: National Girlfriend's Day. I just think the sentiment is so much fun and so true.

There's great eye candy over at the blog, as well as rules and prize details!

Supplies:
Cardstock: (Vintage Cream) PTI
Patterned Paper: (Pixie-Licious) Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: (Birthday Purses) Skipping Stones Design

Ink: (Rich Cocoa) Memento
Embellishments: (Brad, Ribbon) Creative Impressions
Tools: (Square Punch) Creative Memories
