Quixotic Challenge, nose rings, and pocketbooks

First things first - I so missed my stampin' stuff while on vacation! :) It's so good to be back!

This card is for the following challenges -

Quixotic Challenges - Make a Splash

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Get it all Out!

I used Merman Ian digi image by the Greeting Farm and those little circle sticky things have been in my stash for quite some time, I had never used them before. I didn't know WHAT to do with them until this challenge! LOL

On to the nose rings - ha! Yesterday was my daughter Cassidy's 15th birthday. She has been asking to get her nose pierced for at least 6 months now. I got mine done over 10 years ago and I still love it - I wanted it for quite some time before I did it, and I wanted Cassidy to do the same thing. I didn't want her doing something like that on a whim. So we brought her yesterday as a birthday gift, and she looks absolutely adorable - see?

This is her and one of her best friends, Kaylee:

This is the AWESOME hemp pocketbook that I bought at a store called "Hemp and Chocolat" in Guerneville, California:

And I couldn't resist this felt bag at another cool store called Yin Yang in Sebastopol, California:

All of the decorations, including the peace sign and the words, are done with glued-on pieces of felt or embellishments, it's quite a work of art. I love it! I also got some cute sterling silver peace sign earrings and a business card holder with a cool scene from Alice in Wonderland on the cover.

That's all for now - off to create some more! I cannot believe my vacation is near an end, I could definitely get used to being home full-time. Peace.


  1. I am so glad she had fun! I have wanted to get my nose pierced for a long time, too, but I never do it! I am so excited for her and it looks very kewl! Great bags. Love them!

    Angel Hugs,
