A bit of retail therapy

Hello there dear friends.
Well I'm back from a bit of retail therapy at Telford Shopping Centre. No crafty bits today but I did manage to add to my wardrobe, well there was 50% off the top I bought and 20% off the watch. I also bought some eye makeup which is something I rarely wear as I have very sensitive eyes. I got Clinique so I am hoping I will be OK with that as they say it is opthalmically (something like that) tested.

Anyway enough of my shopping exploits. I have a couple of cards to share with you today.
This first one is one I made just because I came across the cute little image amongst one of my boxes of stamps while looking for another stamp which I still haven't found!!

The lovely cute girl and the flipflops are coloured with copics and I think the paper is Wild Rose Studio if my memory serves me correct (unfortunately it often lets me down). The flowers are Petaloo which I've had lying about for a long time and the sentiment is Craftwork  cards.

Now the next one is another I made using the Just my Imagination Grande Journeys stamps which will be launched on Jayne Nestorenko's new website on Wednesday.
This time I've used the accessories set.

 The lampost, corners and flowers are all from the set. I coloured the lampost using Whisper brush pens. I coloured the flowers with pearlescent paints and added a touch of glitter. I added glitter to the corners and to the spellbinders flourish.  The blue oval panel was created at Jayne's workshop using Distress Inks on glossy card and it really does give a lovely effect.

  2. Two wonderful cards Pat. I love the second one. Great shopping trip. I got the same thing, very sensitive eyes, that's why since yesterday my right eye is swollen, can't stand the mascara.
