Waiting.....

This is the 2nd post today....also for another late SWAP.  My last post was the Fall-O-Rama SWAP and this one was called the Cuttlebug SWAP. Basically, just use your cuttlebug in some form. Easy-peasy.  Little did I realize that I would break my Sizzix BigShot doing this swap. I thought that thing was unbreakable!! Fortunately I have a very handy husband so I just handed it to him and gave a sad face.  He found that it had a bad bearing in it, but was able to fix it enough to last me hopefully until Christmas (after taking it completely apart, he did say that it was very well built!!)
Like the last post and SWAP I made a card and a handbag for Debi. And I appropriately used "Waiting Tilda" (or I think that is her name...??)
I used my BigShot for the Spellbinders Lacey Ovals and Ovals, and then used Swiss Dots embossing folder for the oval behind Tilda. I recently got my hands on some Helmars Scrap Dots! I love this stuff! (though I'm still learning how to apply it, LOL!) I've popped Tilda up using it and really prefer this stuff over the pop dots (which I can never get to stick anyway).
I actually used the same sketch with this that I did with the Sunflower card. I just think this is a great sketch (beware...you'll be seeing this more!) I'm going to enter this in the Just Magnolia Challenge, too. I'm not really sure if I can have two entries but we'll see.
I kept this bag a little simpler, I thought the paper was so gorgeous, I wanted it to stand out on its own.
Yep, it's a Shrinky Dink Tilda (gettin' tired of those yet? LOL)  I'm just excited that I have this in the mail on it's way to Debi. Hopefully, she'll like it enough she'll forgive me for being sooo late!

Wow Paula, you have been busy! I love the gorgeous bag, and all the beautiful flowers... Thank you for your awesome comment on my blog - sooo encouraging and lovely!! The whole harvest weekend at the church went really well and everyone enjoyed it immensely, but unfortunately I only sold one mirror and one little box, so after I've decided who's getting what for Christmas, I am going to try and sell the rest on the Etsy store I'm in the process of setting up. It's really scary as I've never sold anything online before and I'm terrified of doing it all wrong!!!
