An Empty Purse, Tea and Chipboard

Here's my project for today's Teapot Tuesday challenge - Abracadabra - where you have to show something that has disappeared - and the thing that disappeared??? There's no money in my purse - why???? because I buy too many stamps!! LOL!!! Is your purse empty too!?!?! (I see heads nodding!)

This also covers the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger which is a bright green bag with red and pink flowers from an Ebay shop!All my stamps are new releases from Waltzingmouse Stamps: Big Blooms and Fancy Phrases.

You can find Mel's fun little purse template here in the SCS forums.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Big Blooms, Fancy Phrases
Paper: BoBunny Seafom dot & Decaf Dot, white - PTI
Ink: Pure poppy, Dark chocolate - PTI, Adirondack - Lettuce, Memento Angel Pink
Accessories: Red eyelet, cropadile, ribbon- PTI, rhinestones - Studio 18, foam dimensionals, purse template, circle punch - SU, scor tape, scor pal

I made this card for last weeks Ways to Use it challenge over on Split Coast - to use chipboard on your card. My flourish is a Tim Holtz Grungeboard colored with my ink pad. The fun teaparty sentiment is one of the new sets just released by Waltzingmouse Stamps called Afternoon Tea Sentiments. I used last week's Mercy's Tuesday sketch for my card.

Then, since I had all the supplies out as well as a pile of chipboard shapes (!), I made this second card using the same sketch but different chipboard and another fun quote from the Afternoon Tea Sentiments set.

Hmmmm - I'm suddenly craving a cup of tea!!!

Oh- and Claire has picked the winners from our WMS DT blog waltz - check that out here.

Oh yes, Julia, my purse is empty after "waltzing across the pond" this month, but your post gives me some great ideas to use when my purchases reach me.
I admire your creativity, and expect that I will be 'case'ing a couple of your ideas.
Got any classes lined up that we can take?? :D
