This is the first time I have participated in the tour; although I have enjoyed visiting many castles in the past. Hope you have enjoyed the tour so far.
The stamp set I have chosen to profile for this tour is one of the hostess sets in the current Stampin"Up Idea Book and Catalogue called Silhouette Sentiments. I found it to be a very versatile set and fun to use.It can be found with the level two hostess sets in the front of the Idea Book and Catalogue, page 11.
Paper/Card Stock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, DSP is from the InColor Paper Stack.

Using the Marker technique this set is perfect to create inserts for the Simply Adorned Charms; this one is the 1x2 inch pendant.
And lastly my favorite project! .....I have been seeing all kinds of holders, covers etc for purse items on many blogs so I thought it would be fun to create a purse gift set with all of these things in it. I used:
