Fun Saturday!!!

Hello everyone....hope you are having a great weekend!!! As you read this I am in Canton, Texas, at one of the largest flee markets in the USA!!! It's close to 100 acres of stuff....WOOT!!!
My BFF and I are doing the shop and sweat thing and our DH's are out on the lake fishing....nothing like a happy man to justify doing a little retail therapy...LOL!!!!

I made this card a couple of days ago...isn't the image adorable!!! I borrowed this stamp called Girl Reading from my DD Holly...she is on the QKR Stampede DT and received some super cute stamps to design with. Of course I needed to raid her craft room...LOL!!!

The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. It was cutout with Nestabilities using the out of the box technique and the background was sponged while the image was still in the Nestie with Blush Blossom. Pearls, pearl flourish, a scalloped Spellbinders diecut, lace, ribbon, sewing, and a Prima Flowers Spray finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: QKR Stampede
Paper: Vanilla, Sage Shadow, Chocolat Chip, Webster's Pages dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Ribbon, Zva Pearl Flourish, Pearls, Spellbinders Scalloped Border die, Lace, Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, Copics, Prima Flower Spray

Thanks for dropping by this morning....hope you get to do something fun today!!!!
