Born To Shop


I hope you are all surviving this dreadful weather - round by us the river bank is all flooded and Whisper is constantly being looking like a 14 colour Collie and not a tri-colour one !!,  it took Alan just over 2 and a quarter hours to get to Crawley yesterday (well he tried to get to London, but the train line from Horsham is completely under water and they don't when it will clear).

I bought today's image, when LOTV had 20% off of everything, just before Christmas, i know it's an old one, but as i didn't have many girly ones, i thought it gave me a good excuse to buy some !!, the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Sentiment Tags', the papers are : (the shoe one) K & Co - 'Sparkly Sweet' (and the spotty one) Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics', the corner die is : Joanna Sheen / Signature Dies - 'Lace Corners 1', which i treated myself to, just before Christmas, the ribbon is from : The Ribbon Girls, gems and doily are from my stash.

Today's Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Winter Wonderland  - where the Challenge is 'Teddy Bear'

Totally Gorjuss - where Challenge No: 217 is 'Ribbon'

Crafty Cardmakers - where Challenge No: 107 is 'Bear With Me'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 291 - and it gave me a reason to use one of my doilies, thank you

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'New Beginnings' - i chose new crafty stash - stamp and corner dies 

Lili Of The Valley - Ideas To Inspire - where the Challenge this month is 'Anything Goes'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Such an adorable image, beautifully coloured, and great backing papers and corners too.

Thanks for sharing with us

Crafty Cardmakers

PS The reason your card didn't show immediately is because I have had to resort to moderating entries before they are published as we were getting so many where people were doing their own thing and flinging it into our challenge whether or not it met the theme! I am delighted to say your's does not fit into that category and is perfect for the theme....... it does say this on the blog by the way, just above the linky thing, and the linky itself should tell you it's being moderated when you link

I love your card, the image is so cute and your colouring is perfect. I love the papers you've used too, especially the shoes and bag one.

I hope that the river near you is receeding a bit now and you're all safe, I'll be thinking of you.
