Crafty Little Fairies (DT) Shopping

It's Thursday morning so that means it is time for another challenge with

Now, I have heard it said that this is every girl's favourite thing to do.  No.  It isn't.  I hate

Unless of course it is for new crafty playthings.  Shoes?  Clothes?  Bah!

But I loved making my card for the theme

The stamp is a cutie from LOTV called Emma Presents
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) on Bristol Board
Papers are unmarked ones that I have had ages, I think I inherited them from a friend, and I have almost ditched them so many times, but hoarding does pay off eventually
The appropriate circle sentiment is by Little Claire from the Sentiments Mix set
Martha Stewart border punch for detail

When I painted the image, the colours matched with those in the papers, and then when I layered the image panel onto the backing paper, it ended up covering the brown handbags completely!!

Hope you have fun with this one, so looking forward to seeing your wondering shopping themed makes.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

I have days where I do well shopping and get things I really do need / want, but most of the time I hate shopping. I just can't be bothered going through all the rails. I think that hubby and I have reversed roles in that respect as he is a real shopaholoic!
Love your card honey and the sweet LOTV image so beautifully coloured.

This girlie hates shopping too. Ugh. It's just horrible in so many ways. You card, however, is not horrible at all. It's quite fun and girlie. I love how she's all dressed up for her big spree.

A fabulous design and it's always nice when you are rewarded for hoarding - the DP is perfect for the image :-)
I am not a fan of shopping unless it is for crafty stash, or maybe chocolate/cake as per your sentiment circle - that I can do too!
Big hugs, Kat xx
