Shop Til You Drop

Good morning Peeps,

It's Wednesday, half way through already, hooray for bank holidays. Don't know about you but over the christmas period I have gone to bed later and later and got up later, so returning to work this morning was a right struggle, plus I didn't sleep well, think it must of been the excitement of returning to work, lol.

Anyway, moving on, it's our first challenge of the new year at Crafts and Me Challenges and this fortnight it has been chosen by the lovely Trish and its............paper tearing. Interpret as you wish, I distressed all my edges and ripped it here and there so it should count, just love this technique and look, lol.

I have used one of the new Crafts and Me Stamps from the Melody range available HERE.  This one is called Shopping Melody, don't know why?

She's certainly done a lot of shopping.

Side view so you can see the dimension on the shop front awning.

Materials Used:-
Image Shopping Melody from Crafts and Me HERE
Boutique stamp is by Magnolia
Medium - Copics and Prisma Pencils
Papers - New Release from Bearly Mine Desigsn, Cheery Days and Damask
