We love shopping!


I've been spending a lot of my time over the past few days looking after family as they've been suffering from a nasty bug :-( However, they all seem to be on the mend today so I took the opportunity to get back to my crafting :-) I'm always hoping to get just that little bit ahead of all the cards I need to make when something comes along and sets me behind again!

Anyway, the main thing I wanted to achieve with this card was the embossing... I've had several attempts at it but they never seem to come out quite right and you can barely see it. This one, however, has come out perfectly!!! I've used one of the new papermania embossing folders (this one is Victorian Fleur) in my bigshot. Love it! So much better than my previous attempts!

The image is We Love Shopping from Stamposaurus stamps and I've coloured it with my promarkers. The sentiment is from the Daisy and Dandelion birthday set. The papers are Cupcakes from Crafts House and the card is some leftover from my scraps bag (pat on the back!).

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
The ABC Challenge - Y is for You and me
The Crafty Pad - Yellow, orange and holes
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Bold and bright
Paperplay Challenges - Sketch
Craftalicious Challenges - Birthdays

Hope you like it!

Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
