Purses Of All Sizes!

I made these two purses for my mother/daughter hostesses last night. I purchased the tutorial from Becky Roberts. I'll come back later and post a link to her blog info. She does such great work and explains directions very well.
Aren't they super cute! And they really weren't that hard to make!

Close up of the buckle with some Pretties rhinestones added. Gotta get another set of Pretties!
Demonstrated the faux Aligator skin technique. It really looks like it!!! That was FUN!
Purse card we made using the Circle Circus stamp set. I got my idea from a card in the SCS gallery, will try and post a link later.
Another card I had the girls make last night using the Great Friend stamp set and the Tea Party DSP. I love the color Basic Gray, but I still agree they need to rename it Charming Charcoal! It's really pretty especially used with PINK! Hey if you can't tell I'm really busy and need to get off of here and get some work done, I'll try and post some vacation pictures in a couple of days. Have a great stampin' day!
