Noooooooooo!!! I couldn't think of anything worse, I hate shopping!, well at least physically going to the shops, I know women are supposed to love it, but not me, it's my worst nightmare, give me a computer and a credit card and I can shop to my heart's content, especially if it involves buying digi goodies LOL!
Talking of buying digi goodies, here are a couple of cards I have made using Clipart Fairy kits, that I have had in my 'stash' for almost twelve months and don't think I've used until today!
Plain Lilac paper - The girls are back in town papers
Flowers - punch
Foliage - Memory Box die - Chloe Stem
Sentiment - Freebie -TLC
Little Pearl flowers - my good friend Donna (thanks)
Black metallic cord (butterfly head and antenna) and Ribbon - Meiflower
The card is pretty self explanatory, mostly matting and layering, but when cutting out the butterfly the antennae were too fiddly, so I cut them off, and then made new ones by cutting a short length of metallic cord, folding it in half and then tying it into a knot, making sure to push the knot down to the folded end and leaving the free ends loose. I used a bit of tacky glue to stick the knot into place to represent the head and antennae.
Papers - Shopping Girls Hat
Sentiment - computer generated
Punched border - Martha Stewart
Ribbon, charm and pearls - Meiflower
£10 note - borrowed from my hubby, who when I gave it back to him asked how his £20 note had magically changed into a £10 note, cheeky so and so LOL!
The tag on this card is big enough to hold a gift card to the recipient's favourite store, or some birthday money.
Hope the sun is shining where you are and you are making the most of the weekend.
