Shop Til You Drop

Good morning dear friends, hope you are well today - if not wishing you a speedy recovery!  Well, our trip to London went well.  It was a Celebrity Pointless and also had the theme of the Eighties. So Alexander and Richard came out wearing Eighties clothes and permed wigs!

Time for a brand new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is Shopping Spree!
Quite a good one for me as I am off on the train today to meet my friend in Manchester for exactly that purpose as well as lunch and look round the German Market!  Here is my card:


I decided to make an Easel Card and used the super gorgeous Follow Me On Fairy Book which is available here from The Paper Shelter. She has been coloured with Copics and I used chalks for the sky.  The papers are Nitwits - Always and Forever.  I have used Spellbinders Labels 18 for the sentiment which is computer generated and says "Take it easy on your birthday - shop on line".  I also used Memory Box Precious Hearts, Spellbinders Rose Creations, Marianne Ivy and MS Cherish border punch. Here is another view:


As usual there is a fabulous prize up for offer:


This is really worth entering as I love Paper Shelter images they are so much fun to colour AND if you don't really like colouring or don't have a lot of time then they come with a coloured image too! Please go over to the challenge to see some fabulous work from the rest of the A Team.  Thank you so much for looking today, take care xx

A very cute card and lovely papers used. Your flower too is gorgeous.

Dad was pretty quiet when we spoke of mum's two year anniversary, he doesn't talk much at all anymore, but we do say a little prayer and give mum's photo a kiss. I tell him mum is around us and sits on his shoulder as his angel...he then smiles.xxxx

Hi Suzie,

Beautiful card, lovely image.

So envy of you going to the German Market, I used to go there every year when my Daughter lived in Manchester, not been since she moved to Cornwall which was 3 years ago, used to love walking round there of an evening, some great little stalls though we did used to love the mulled wine lol!!

Love & Hugs
