A Ladies 70th Birthday

Hello!  My Christmas cards have been delayed due to birthdays and Christmas tree and decorating for the Christmas season.  I am trying to stick to priorities and doing what needs to be done first.  With that said, here is my Mom's 70th birthday gift/card from us (I will be putting gifts inside each of these items). My mom has a small collection of "glass" shoes and purses, so that is why I chose to do this for her. I found the shoe pattern Here, and printed it starting with just making a template just to see how hard it would be to put it together.  As you can tell, it is not to hard to do at all.  Then I cut out the purse with my Cricut Expression.  The the fun part was actually choosing the paper and then embellishing it.  It is not perfect but, I am very pleased at how well it turned out. I wanted it to look vintage and I think I achieved that.  I posted on Facebook to all of her friends that it was her 70th Birthday and that I would love it they all sent her a card.  As of now, she has over 10 different birthday cards from friends and family, and I am expecting more for her.  Also, her church had a cake for her last night so tonight I get to spoil her with dinner and her gifts and a cake.  I hope she likes these, and never gets tired of my creations for her.

I used:
K&Company Life's Journey Designer Paper
Teal blue cardstock from my stash
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge for the purse
Cricut Craft Room Basics for the scalloped circle cut on the back of the purse
All the ribbon and lace are from my stash
The paper Roses are from Michael's
The pearl strands are from Michael's
Rhinestones are from Michael's

The Purse and the Shoe together!

Well, I hope you have a day filled with many blessings 
and thank you so much for stopping in.
