It's Your Day - Everyday Purse --for Dies R Us Challenge Blog

I'm so pleased to be sharing that starting today, I am on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog team! My time on the DRU Inspiration team had come to an end, so I'm very happy to have been given a spot on the Dies R Us Challenge team. Challenges are on the 1st and 15th of every month, and they have themes.  You must use at least one metal die from a brand that Dies R Us sells in the Dies R Us Store. A $10 Gift voucher is given away each challenge, and top 3 are awarded.

The challenge that starts today, and runs for the next 2 weeks has the theme of "Anything Goes" (remember to use as least 1 die from a brand that Dies R Us sells).

I recently purchased this Concord & 9th Everyday Purse Die Set, and I am having sooooo much fun with it!  This is what I created for one of my best friends birthdays:

Isn't it darling?  I used designer papers from Crafter's Companion, and some leather looking papers from Tonic Studios.  The Silver Glimmer paper is also from Tonic Studios. The Concord & 9th Everyday Purse set has various options for clasps, tags, and closures.  The possibilities are really endless.  

Here's a picture with a gift card in it to give you a better idea of the size of the Concord & 9th Everyday Purse Die Set.

Supplies from the Dies R Us Store used on this project:

We have some exciting news to share with you.  .Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

I hope you can join us this next 2 weeks for our "Anything Goes" themed Challenge.  I'd love to see your creations, and you could be the winner of the $10 gift certificate. 
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Outlawz Festive Fridays-- Birthday
Outlawz Monday Greetings -- Geometric shapes (more than 4 sides)
D.L. Art -- April Linky Party
