It's going to be one of 'those' days today, we have to go shopping as it's Sophie and Lucy's 17th birthday tomorrow, they have no real idea of what they want and neither do we, we have got them a few 'bits and pieces', ideas that have popped up over the past few weeks, mind you if we totalled up the cost of the few 'bits and Pieces's I think we'd be surprised, they are pretty good and don't really ask for much, although Lucy has mentioned a car once for twice!
We are keeping our fingers crossed for a job for them both, the local wildlife park is looking for Restaurant staff on weekends, Becca worked there for about 3 years I think, so we are hoping that that will help the girls get in.
Today's card is a mix of two Stampin Up stamp sets ........
Over the top of her, so it looks like she is walking up the little street. I think it works ok, I paper pieced her dress, and umbrella with Real Red paper and used the same in the matting and layering, with a bit of Silver metallic card as a highlight.
The Thank you is a lovely font and it is from another stamp set called Bookcase Builder, which is the set I have to use for my DT projects, the stamp actually says "Thank you for being my friend" , which is a lovely sentiment, but I only wanted the 'thanks you' for this card so I masked off the rest of the stamp before inking. ( I bet you all thought you'd never hear me using that term!) Haha.
I hope you like the card.
Wish me luck with my shopping, I shall pop in later to check up on you all!
Love and hugs
