Handbag/Purse Invitations for Rosanna's Birthday, Copic Conference Photos and Grannies 87th Birthday
Hi All, where did last month go!!!
First just got to wish my Mum in Law A WONDERFUL 87TH BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGARET, HIP HIP HURRAY!!XXXX
Just had the most FANTASTIC weekend at the Copic Conference in Sydney, took Rosanna and boy did we have fun, laughed so much my sides hurt, ate way too much yummy food, fortunately my trousers were stretchy lol! And had so much crafty fun! Was lovely to colour again without the stress of work, cleaning etc!!! Though that didn't last long when I got back home lol!
Finally got these invitations finished ready for Rosanna's Birthday sleepover on Saturday, so another weekend with very little sleep lol! These have been created on shiny/metallic cardstock. I made up the design myself, if anybody is interested I have made a few notes and would be happy to do make a tutorial, just let me know.
Had to make a keepsake for Rosanna (also the guinea pig lol!) I pleated the ribbon around the edges, and part copic coloured the very edge but we decided we liked the edge as it was! Kindyglitz the edge of the purse, the flap and swirlled it on the ribbon. Cream pearl beaded ribbon for the handle. Pearls and rhinestones for decoration.
A different background to show the kindyglitz sparkle and embellishments, 'Rosanna' is written using an Ice White Liquid Pearls Pen

Just had to have a purple one lol!
The invite on SU Vanilla card stock and punched edges
All ten purses and all unique as Rosanna picked the cardstock and said here mum these are the colours, so has been fun matching embellishments lol!
Now match the hand with the face below lol! Not the best of me but, wonderful of everyone else.
Group colouring (game we played using two dice) Fantastic fun

Finally Granny (Edward's mum Margaret) is with us for eight weeks (on holiday from England), been out tonight celebrating her 87th Birthday, we took her to the Thai restaurant in Laverton, had a wonderful banquet, (full again lol! had a wonderful time! She is one remarkable lady, fit as a fiddle! Celebrated with a bottle of fizz when we got home (Rosanna and Morgan's fizz was Lemonade)

Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you and your family are all well, happy crafting, take care, AnnetteX:)
