Nitwits OOh La La

What lovely weather we are having here in NW England , too hot to craft really , the afternoon sun turns my craft room into an oven .
After visiting Pauline's blog , I had to have the new Nitwit digi papers called Ooh La La, they have poodles so it was a must have . This card features the beautiful papers. The outer die is Tonic Venetian lace , it is a large die collection containing 11 dies , this is the biggest  7.5" square , I do like to make big cards lately . The butterflies use to dies , the inner 2 are a free gift with a carft mag , the outer one was a bargin buy for a £1 at a craft fair , it's by Do craft. The pearl trim used for the butterfly body is from crabapple crafts .

Tonic Kensington Handbag

Good morning crafting friends , hasn't it been such a lovely week weather wise , in the UK ,long may it last . I for one have been enjoying the garden and eating healthy meals with a bit of crafting mixed in .  I saw this die on create and craft and thought I must have it . I saw lots of gorgeous bags on the web and some in lovely acetate boxes . I only had A4 acetate , so this is my version with a card back to match the bag . To be honest the box is harder to make than the bag . I'm going to order some A3 acetate form the web and get handbag and box making , I think if I sold these they might be popular , what do you think ?

products used :Tonic Kensington Handbag Die , pink card and stripped card , pearl strings form my
