Let's go shopping

Hello lovely people,

I'm all recovered after my hectic weekend and ready for another busy one with more family this weekend :-)  Just two more days of work to go first...

In the meantime, we have a new challenge for you at Crafty Little Fairies and our theme this week is...


Our lovely sponsor this week with a prize of 4 digis of the winner's choice is...

I fancied another play with my Go Kreate dies and this time I have followed a suggestion from the lovely Christine to draw round the inside of the largest die and cut it out by hand to mat onto the base shape - it works a treat!

I have used one of the fabulous 'Love to Shop' girls from ADU - I do wish I looked this glamorous when shopping but not a chance!

Very cute image, and I love the papers and colors you chose to go with her, Kat! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Christine L said...

Hi Kat... ooooh this is absolutely GORGEOUS... love the paper you've used... and the image looks so perfect on it.. Your shading of her (particularly the folds on her skirt) is fabulous.. Your stitching is PERFECT.. And the little flowers finish it off so well. There is NOTHING I don't like there.. (double negative??) - and I'm so glad you found the tip helpful re the cutting!

Big hugs
Christine x
PS... Have a lovely family weekend !
