Shop Til You Drop!!

Good morning and a happy Saturday to you all! It doesn't look too bad a day in Blackpool today, yesterday was a beautiful sunny day so fingers crossed for today!

Today I have a girlie card but no pink!!

She's Eleanor Mae Hatter from Little Miss Muffet stamps and I have coloured her with Copics and Prisma pencils.  I have added Glossy Accents to her boots because they reminded me of the ones we used to wear in the 60's/70's Wet Look - remember them????  I used to love them and had some thigh high ones (honestly that was the fashion then!!).  The papers are Pink Petticoat and the sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments.  I have added some Baby Blue Stickles around the edge of the sentiment and some Liquid Pearls in blue to her hat pin.  The ribbon, gems and heart are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Pattie's Creations - Photo Inspiration
Paper Crafting Journey - 3 or more DPs
Paper Pretties - Card for Girls
Crafty Sentiments - Use a Digi
Top Tip Tuesday - Spotty, Dotty
Incy Wincy Designs - Digis Only

I don't know if you remember but a few weeks ago I mentioned on my blog that Dawny P was asking for people to knit for the Fish and Chip babies in Africa.  Well I finally finished my top and beanie hat:

I kept thinking about the poor mite that would be wearing this and how lucky our children are.  I am getting it off today to Dawny P.

Well that's it for me for today hope you have a great weekend, I'll be back tomorrow and thanks for looking, take care xx
