This one makes me giggle!!!

This one really does make me giggle! And it is a rare card, I saw the sketch, had the idea, and bam it came out just as I planned. SUPER RARE!


The sketch is a fabulous one from this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge and it's another of Katharina's Sketches, she rocks the sketches! Now as soon as I saw it I thought of this cute stamp that I purchased months back at the LSS garage sale. Cute, but hard to use. I actually cut of some of it to make it fit the card.


Isn't it too funny, love the Rubber stamp store in the center! Start your Morning shopping with a donut, go get your nails done (we know all these inks are so hard on them) Then do some much needed stamp shopping, while the cleaners next door is doing the laundry, then before you head home stop for some ice cream! A perfect shopping day! It is made by Museum of Modern Rubber. I colored it in with my copics. Then stamped out Tilda in her fashionable dress. I always dress like this when I run out to shop. =) I colored her in with Copics as well, then I high lighted with Spica Glitter Pens.


Then to the sketch, I used a sage green card stock and layered a piece of DCWV Glitter Nana's Baby Girl Nursery. LOVE IT, and I am seeing it everywhere on cards, bet it is one of their most popular lines! I zig zag stitched the edges down, and then did the same for the band up the middle. I found a scrap piece of coral pink card stock and ran both sides through my Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch. I then sewed it together, and put it all together. Tilda is put on with pop dots to give an appearance of standing in front of her favorite stores.

I then decided that because there really isn't a place for a sentiment, I would do something on the inside. LIGHT BULB! I pulled out My Favorite Things Charge set. Oh my, just so perfect! I stamped out the Celebrate in Style and Time to Shop, then the little purse and shoes. (Those are both my shopping weakness!) Colored in with copics and matted with the same green, and sewed together.


I don't know who I am going to send it too, but for now it is just standing on my desk, makes me laugh! Hope it does you too! Well off to do some blog hopping and then get my day going, have a great Wednesday!
