For all those Girls who like to Shop


Todays card again has been created from one of the new Elizabeth Bell stamps from Funky Kits, this one is The Shopaholic, so I dedicating to all us crafty girls who spend a fortune of our craft.

I stamped my image again onto white card and I went back to my Karisma pencils for this one, I find them a lot easier to use, then I cut her out to the size that would fit behind my Polka Dot Frame. This is one of the new Nestabilitie dies from Spellbinders, I used my cats eye inkpad to colour the spots through the stencil.

The base card is a A4 piece of white card folded in half, and on top I have layered up a piece of red card with a patterned paper from one of Anice's Funky Cds, which I printed from my computer. The mounts in the centre were again another of Anice's papers, but this time I have used one of my Martha Stewart border punches, on top of this I have used another piece of red card and one more of Anice's papers, this one I thought was quite appropriate with the handbags on. I should have said I used a red marker pen around the edges of all the papers just to define the edge.

I then stuck the stamped image behind the Polka Dot Frame and with foam attached it to the base card. The greeting is one of Little Clare's stamps that Ive stamped again onto white card and punched out with the red card one of the Nestabilitie tag dies, then I trimmed the white card down to fit on top of the red one, I have used black brads through the holes as decoration, and stuck this to the card again with foam. To finish of the card Ive put together two silk flowers from my Crafty Stash with a jewel brad in the centre and hung a bag charm from the back of one, on some jump rings.

I also want to thank you for all the lovely comments on our new Granddaugher, unfortuantely it maybe awhile before we get to see her, as she lives in Kent and we live in Gloucestershire and my poor husband is on call this weekend anyway, which is a great shame. But I expect being a first time mum, she will be trying to cope with being a mum and perhaps trying to catch up on some sleep and a new routine.
