Halloween Or Harvest...
Better late, than never...
October came with an invitation to join a few other stamper's in a private HALLOWEEN card swap. A card wouldn't "hold" a couple of $pot stamps, ribbons, embellishments and chocolate that were personally picked around the holiday. My friend, Mare reminded me it was to be a "card" swap? I couldn't resist sharing all the neat things offered this year. Next thing I knew... Mare was purchasing a few goodies herself! *LOL - wink*
Cornish Heritage Farms is a Christian based company. However, CHF stamps are very adaptable through techniques, color combinations and embellishment choices for any holiday season. This "handbag" could go either way... Halloween or Harvest! *wink*
A close-up of the decorative closure provides the viewer with more details. Unfortunately a photograph doesn't do a card or project justice as viewing it in person.

Thank-you for the invitation Tami Wood to swap with yourself, Kristina of BALANCE, Rhiannon of Rings Like A Bell & my good friend Mare of It's All About The Journey. Rhiannon was so kind and generous for sending me an Inkadinkado stamp. As a personal "thank-you" to Rhiannon I added her into MY swap. Hopefully everyone enjoys their Harvest Handbag with all it's little surprises.
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
