Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #107

Bini Shop Girl (Shop till ya drop)

Good morning everyone here it is another wonderful sweet Wednesday,  and you all know what that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Where has that week gone again as I'm getting older those days are getting shorter and I seem to be getting a lot less done or am I just getting a little slower at doing things???  I do think a bit of both LOL.  This week has been a hard one for me with my creativeness or a lack of it.   I thought I would work outside my comfort zone and use colours I don't usually use PINK AND BROWN.  I love looking at other peoples cards with these colours or blue and brown or yellow and brown, but for me I just couldn't pull it off! I do think I've lost my mojo whilst making this card I had all these great intentions using these colours and my great image and I feel I could have done better.
Well I'm excited on Friday I'm going to SENZ which is a large display of retail stores, classes and demonstrations for crafts so after a day there my mojo may return.  I've never been before so this year I'm off and it's only a 30 minute drive away from where I live isn't that great?  I'll report in next week letting you know that I didn't spend any money and didn't buy anything for crafting
Ya right.... Ha Ha Ha............

Kathie, I love pink and brown and I think you've done this one up proud...I am loving everything about it. The paper piecing and the ombre effect on her dress is fab as is those cute flowers. Wish that I could go to that stamp show with you and not spend any money!!! There is a group of us here on the east coast that met online that go to one in North Carolina in July where we shop and have lunch and catch up in person, can't wait to attend in a few weeks.
Have a great day!

Oh my Kathie, you haven't lost your Mojo...your card is adorable. And, the pink and brown is perfect!! I love all your added embellies. They are so cute!! This is such a fun image and it was really fun to use paper piecing with it. Great minds do think alike. I love this image in pink. And, I love the gal in brown hair. Beautifully done, my friend!!
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Kathie!
You have NOT lost your mojo - this is wonderful. Your coloring is always perfect, especialy here and I love the paper piecing of the bags. The embossing of those flowers is a terrific touch - especially with your embellishments. And that ribbon is so pretty too. This is a perfect girlie card and I love it. Hope you have a great week!
