A BIG THANK YOU to Kristina Werner

SEE HOW TO MAKE THIS CUTE PURSE..... if you need box base instructions you can get them here.....OTHERWISE just watch the video to see the technique for this cute little wristlet! Check out my side bar for all your needs.



First of all I would like to congratulate
Kristina Werner for reaching 50 fabulous weeks of COLOR CHALLENGES and doing them just for all of us! It is a time consuming undertaking and she has been more than gracious to do it for us! Remember she picks her favorite top 20 and does not use a random interger! That is a feat in itself. SO KRISTINA here is a round of applause for you, and a great big THANK YOU!

I wanted to make something 3d for the big 50 event so, I chose this cute little purse that is all over the web and filled it with 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" note cards. I made my own envies in red to finish off the requirements! I embossed the little purse in a faux leather and added hodge podge hardware to the strap to make it look authentic! So much fun! Last, but not least I embossed the brad in white craft ink so as not to be disqualified from the challenge! We could use no other colors besides white, red, yellow and turquoise LOL!!!! So here you go I hope you have fun with your entry too! Have a great week everyone. Hugs~Donna
