Inspired By...

I love Heather's style.  She doesn't know it, but I admire her clean style.  It is stunning and not busy at the same time.  Her sketch on this card really appealed to me, so I decided to have a go at making a card using her sketch.  Hope you like it...a quick and elegant thank you card! 
I also wanted to share a fun little purchase that arrived in the mail yesterday.  I have a new camera lens that is big...and I wanted a new camera bag.  All the camera bags I saw were clunky with what felt like 101 snaps...and no room to through your keys or cell phone.  But then...Carly posted on her blog about this Etsy shop, PorteenGear.  You can design your own camera bag...and let me tell you...I am in love with my camera bag!  Here are a few shots...first up the front shot.  I went back and forth on whether to get brown or black leather...but I wear black more often...even if it's a black t-shirt in the summer...so here's the front shot...
 A front view with three small pockets and a zippered pocket...perfect for my phone and keys!
 Finally, a view from the top showing how roomy the bag is...and it fits that big huge lens...no problem!
My camera fits in the middle and another lens goes on the side...all my camera supplies in one spot!  Happiness...

  2. I love your card, it is so elegant. Nice bag. I need a new camera before I get a new bag. Mine is being held together with rubber bands, it has been dropped too many times.
