Money Can't Buy Happiness

Don't you just love this image. I have had her for a while and haven't inked her up yet.  I thought the iCopic Design Team call would be the perfect place to ink her up for. This stamp is Whiff of Joy Willow Shopping. You can also find her here at One Crazy Stamper where they are having a challenge for Spring Flowers. I am going to also add this card to their challenge.  


I used some of my favorite My Mind's Eye papers along with some flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I sewed around the edges of all the mats.  I used my favorite R's on here.  R-81,83,85,89.  Her boots are E-50,51,53. Her skin is E-11, E-02,E-93,E-000, her bags are E-55,57,59 and BG-10,11,13. The tissue is BG-000 and 0000 and her hair was colored with E-30,31,and 35. The fabulous sentiment is from AmyR over at All That Scraps, called Sassy Sentiments.

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  Wish we could brew a pot of coffee and color together!!! I can't leave though without a shot of the inside. It is very simply done, but I must add it! You know me!
