A girl can never have too many!

Good afternoon to you, how are you on this dreich Monday?
Has "Horrid Henry" hit you yet.  We've got wind and rain but not as bad as I was expecting, however it is early yet.  I think the worst of the storm is expected later this evening with 90 mile an hour winds, nice, not!
Once the boys are in from school and the dog is walked I shall be battering down the hatch for the rest of the evening, just in case.

Did you have a good weekend?
I had a nice busy day at work on Saturday, which made the time go fast.  This was followed by a quiet night in.  No staying power!
Yesterday also had a quiet day, I wasn't feeling the best, the joys of a sore head.
I guess it is the body's way of telling you to chill!

Today I have been busy beavering away in my craft room, whilst the weather is "pants".
I had a few card orders for friends to crack on with which I have now completed and can relax.
Time now to play instead!  After I've walked the dog, picked up the kids and made tea.
The card I am sharing today is another very CAS card as requested by my pal, it was to feature a handbag of some description.

I made the wee bag with scraps of card, wire, ribbon and my punch corner rounder, then added a little bling and a charm.

My parents went home at the weekend, in all the lovely snow, but made it back south safely.  It was lovely to catch up, we don't do it enough living so far away from all our families.  Time now to get the house back to normal, boys and hubby back into our weekly routine and myself back to work tomorrow and Wednesday.   I do like a routine!
You never know I might get a little crafting in too this week.  Can't wait!

A super card you've made for Anne. I'm sure she'll love it. The piece of ribbon on the handle looks really sweet. I hope you're head is better today.
Hope you'll be able to join in with my blog candy giveaway. Barbxx

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Good evening Erika, well it's blowing a right "Hoolie" with us right now.
I hate the wind I find it quite scary!
I just love your fantastic card, great colour. Has given me an idea for 70th card I have to make.

A sweet CAS design Erika, love how you've created that handbag.
The weather here is blustery but not too bad, hope yours has settled down now.
Enjoy your week.

OOooooooer Erika - I decided to take a peek round your blog - this also is a perfect example of a snippets card. I forgot to include wire in my list in my comment on your entry! :)
