The Mind of a Woman

I will add some txt soon, but now I have to (well, why me? Not MY course work, but...) watch Jane Eyre. (Son's English work, but I've never watched Jane Eyre myself either.)

*** Son's English coursework deadline was today and my help was essential, he says... ***

OK, English coursework done.
Handbag: Again one creature I've never tried before; a Handbag Card. Hih, lovely project. I'm so in love with Spellbinders dies that one day you will get bored with me,

"Annie, happy crafter, had  a Big Shot,
Ee i ee i oh!
And with Big Shot she cut some dies,
Ee i ee i oh!
With a Spellbinders here,
and a Nestabilities there,

Here a mess, there a mess,
Everywhere a big mess
Old crafter Annie had some fun!
Ee i ee i oh!

A woman's mind is as complex as the contents of her handbag; even when you get to the bottom of it, there is ALWAYS something at the bottom to surprise you! - Billy Connelly

Card blank was shaped 
All die cuts - Spellbinders
Decorations on edge of die cuts - some glitter glue dots from tube and leftovers when cutting a eyelet edge die
Stickers - Anita's and from Samuel Taylor's
Butterfly and tiny flowers with pearls -  from my stash
Sentiment - Billy Connelly

Been organising some drawers; it really is rewarding because of all these "oooh, I didn't remember this" and "awww, when have I bought this" etc. Definitely it's GREAT!!!

Few challenges, I would take a part:
Paper Crafting Journey - PCJ Challenge 7 – For the Ladies in Your Life 
Scrapbook Sisters - Card for a Special Lady


  1. This is so beautiful. And of course I now have "Old McDonald's Farm" song in my head. LOL I didn't quite get the part about Jane Eyre, (which I really like; as well as most all of the stories by Jane Austin) but I like your colors, quotes and especially your nestibilities. Hugs, dj

  2. Its really cool, Annemaritta! ANd now I'm gonna have your ditty in my head all day. lol
    Glad you could finish your homework in time to craft. ;-)

  3. Pretty! I love all kinds of shaped cards - and most of all handbags :-)
    Very well done!
    PS: I have my Bigshot for 4 weeks now - and I´m in love with it, too - I continue to buy dies - so much fun!! I should have bought it earlier!

  4. Great I have the song in my head too! That was your ploy right? To get as many of us as possible to have that song in our head? It is working! Too funny! You know I am very partial to purses so I love this! I also love spellbinders and pearls, so this has all my favorites! You did great with all the pearls! They are tedious but well worth it! Great job Annemaritta!

  5. I saw this before, now why didn't I comment...honestly this forgettory of mine gets better and better. Really cute purse the colours, details and all the bling. glad you got your big shot back. Did you have a party to 'die' for - sorry terrible pun!! lol. hugs lin
