A little magic...

So...
my friend Theresa has a birthday
a week and a half ago...
bad friend that I am
I just delivered her card and gift
yesterday!
I whipped up a little magic
thanks to
Being black on black-this is really hard to see...
but that top part--that has "For You" on it?
It's attached with a wee little brad on the right-hand side
to that top panel...
 
"magically" swings up and out of the way
to reveal this...

I found a cute little black tote bag
that came with a white and black polka dot ribbon
run around and knotted in the front-
a ribbon that whipped out quite easily
and since my friend is crafty too,
I knew she'd be able to easily trade out
the ribbons for whatever holiday...
but since halloween is coming up
I chose to decorate it for that...

I added a little feather hair clip
(shhh-don't tell!)
and then made the little back cat on a broom
in front of the moon pin
and attached that...

Before I could get it all put together however
I had a little help from my own
BLACK CAT...

he went head-first into the shopping bag
to check out the feathers...!
Needless to say---
I hung the bag well out of reach
until I delivered it yesterday!
Lol!

I thank Dawn for sharing her card idea-
and give credit where credit is due!
Came across not one but two instances of
"thievery" this past week--
work done by several different people
posted on someone else's blog
with absolutely no credit given to them whatsoever.
I am a follower of Mo's Digital Pencil as well
and Mo Manning, artist behind those designs
had hers lifted again by a company no less!
Sad. Sad. Sad.
You will see ideas shared here-
but you will also see CREDIT GIVEN to the appropriate parties
for those ideas
and I always try to give them a heads up
that I gave them a shout out on my blog!
 
That's it for today.
Gotta fly on out of here and get ready
for our groupies tonight.
Meeting here and I need to clean up some cat hair
and start cooking up some supper!
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
Blessings,
