This card was made using a kit by Heather Roselli called 'Big Spender'. The kit, I think, was partly intended to reflect the current economic climate, but I couldn't resist 'filling' the bag element with gifts and other goodies. I made the tags below using the same kit, and I think I'll make another tag to match the card sometime in the future too - the bag would lend itself to this perfectly, don't you think?
This Thursday will be 'Card Day' over on the Girl Talk blog (Dani Mogstad's team blog). This month I am showing off 3 new cards - and if I get the thumbs up from Dani, a little freebie too... so fingers crossed for a 'yes' :)
I am also doing another article for that blog on the 5th May - 'cos someone else beat me to the card day slot for next month - humph ;)
You know, I never thought I get frustrated being on a design team - but I do, 'cos when you make something you want to show off immediately to everyone, you inevitably have to wait to pop it on the team blog first! Still, I wouldn't stop doing what I do for the world, and as long as the teams want me, I'm theirs - believe me, I know how lucky I am, and constantly wonder just how it happened?
