Good morning all. 
     Did you all have a wonderful Monday?  We were so busy at work,  but boy did it go fast!  :O)   I wanted  to start  today with a huge THANK YOU to you all.  It is always so wonderful to come home to such sweet comments. You are very nice and I love reading every word.  It truly means a lot to me. 
     So let me get to my card for today.  I know that you are all totally shocked that this isn't a Greeting Farm Stamp, but  a  couple of months ago I won a great stamp from Ladybug Crafts and I was in the process of cleaning my desk off when I found it.  I was organizing my desk with these three shelves that I bought at the dollar store just for this specific reason.  I buy things or win them and put them on my desktop so I can use them, and before you know it I can't find where I put them.  Now they have a color coded shelf to rest in until I get around to using them.  (Sorry, way off topic!)  Anyone who knows me knows that I love a great leather purse.  So as you can guess this stamp in right up my alley. 
     I also really wanted to use this yellow checkered frame, so I used it to paper piece the purse and as part of the design of my card.   I love how the yellow and the red worked so well together.  I also decided that I could use this card in the Ladybug Crafts, Ink. challenge #35 Summer Birthdays
     Alright guys, I am out of here.  I have to work early, so I am trying to get everything done so that I can have a little time to visit blogs before I hit the road.   lol.
     Have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G
