Simply Anniversary

This is for Clean & simple 177:

I masked off the right hand side of the card to stamp the Dawn Bibby daisy stamp repeatedly, so I could get the curve. The heart stamp in the middle was a freebie with Craft Stamper, stamped with memento tuxedo black and coloured with copic coral. This was then stamped with the Hobbycraft triple love stamp and then masked to stamp with the Tim Holtz paisley stamp. This was then cut with a nestie, as was the surrounding red scalloped circle. Two epoxy hearts were added and the stamped sentiment.

Papers are Kanban. I threaded the baker's twine through the buttons and then wrapped around a few times. The pyramage oval poppy is from a Kanban kit, with the poppy coloured with copic strong red. The flower buttons and sentiment were from stash.

What's inside your handbag?

That's the question for Suzie's 365 day 47, so I emptied out the contents and here they are:

I try not to carry too much because of problems with my back and I use a bag that goes over my shoulder so that I'm not actually 'carrying' the weight. I think I was surprised to see how much stuff is actually in there!

carrier bag
letter to post
wallet with credit cards etc
powder compact
reliever inhaler
pens (6 of them - do I really need that many in my bag?)
Boots points coupons
bus pass
variety of tablets/throat sweets
contact lenses

Update: getting ready to go out soon and suddenly realised what should have been in my bag and needs to be added - reading glasses - I always try to keep a pair in there.
