Bev sent me beautiful fabric to construct her bag. The red fabric was gorgeous in real life--heavy and textured and the other fabrics were bold and bright. The rich colors definitely made a statement.
I finished Bev's bag up and sent it off to her.
What do you think?
Here's my card for this week:
I used up some of my Cottage Wall scraps and some odds and ends off my Stampin' table. I love the little curly label punch tab sticking out w/my message stamped on it! :)

I made a masculine card for teenage boys. I have 3 nephews and I have NEVER made them a card since they turned about 10 years old, because let's face it guy cards are a challenge, but a teenage guy card is nearly impossible. Stampin' Up! did a GREAT thing when they introduced Extreme Elements and all the extreme sport stamps. KUDOS SU! If you have boys in your life, you can't go wrong with these stamps!
Stamps: Extreme Elements, On Your Birthday, Extreme Skateboarder
Ink: Barely Banana, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Whisper White
DSP: Pattern Pack III (Night of Navy-grid)
Accessories: Small Star Punch, paper piercer, mat pack, gold brads

I did purchase and download the Sweet Pea paper--isn't it sweet? I am crossing my fingers that the new Idea Book & Catalog has something similar when it comes out in July!
I printed out my stationery and cut it apart and I am very pleased w/ the end result. I will take pictures and add them to my post later. Right now, I'm going to the basement and STAMP! That's my Mother's Day present this year. I didn't want 'things' I wanted a couple hours of DAD TIME for the kids. *WINK* If you are a mom you know what I'm saying! :)

I used MDS to get this layout. I love the fact that I can change my mind 400 times and not waste one scrap of paper. This layout started out with a kraft background and then certainly celery. I have had the picture matted in brocade blue, kraft and finally whisper white. I font was made smaller and larger and changed entirely no less than a half dozen times.
While you may think of My Digital Studio as a big investment....lol... I think of it as a big money saver when you are as indecisive as me. :)
