Teacher Appreciation Mini Pocketbook w/ Notecards

Good morning bloggers!  This is my boys last week of school and I wanted to make a special gift for my youngest sons teacher.  She has been an awesome teacher!  Not that my older sons teacher is not, but the teacher is a MAN and I don't think he would like a purse filled with not cards:))

I made the purse using the wonderful tuturial from Becky Roberts at.  If you like to make items like this or would like to learn how, you need to head over to her sight and check it out.

To go inside the pocketbook, I made 8 bashful blue "Thank You" note cards using the new SU! Fabulous Florets stamp set.  I also made my own matching white envelopes.  I hope you can see the detail of the purse.  I inked around the edges and even stamped the flower image from the same stamp set.  I used the flowers from the Fun Flowers die (again I hope to see this in my future soon!!-I hear its coming back for the new July catalog)

SU! colors used:  marina mist, bashful blue and night of navy
