Raise the Bar...

A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others. -Frank Morgan
My recent Mother's Day card was chose as one of the Top 3 at Raise the Bar and I get to be a Guest Bar-Tender this week! I was so excited to have my card picked...and who doesn't want to Bar-Tend for a week!?!?!?!

This week's challenge is to be inspired by your favorite Purse, Tote Bag or can even find one on the internet if you don't have one that calls out to you "Make me into a Card!!!"

I have had this little woven tote for Years as my Summer bag...I think I got it for $12 at Target!!! I love the little line of beaded flowers!

I didn't have beads, so I just added Stickles to make them shimmer and shine. The sketch for this week's Fall to Layout was Perfect for this inspiration piece so I used that for my layout...
