Painting Rainbows

Last Saturday I managed to get the chance to take a wee drive to Alford , to the opening of Simply Create, a gorgeous new craft store owned by Jacqui. It was so stylish....all decked out in black and pink and enough cupcakes to last a month!
As I was browsing the shelves I came across this stamp I have been wishing for since the release of the 'Country Cousins', but this one has always been out of stock..and it is my favourite. So I was thrilled to see it on Jacqui's shelves. Yeah!!
So I have finally had time to play. I am going to enter this card into a challenge I have not taken part in before..Everybody Art Challenge. They have a great sketch to play along with this week and an inspirational design team.

I have coloured her with prismas and machine stitched parts of the card. The papers are DCWV 'Green Stack' and are full of gorgeous colours. The sentiment is 'Hero Arts' and the flowers are prima.
The inside is just very simple..a carrying through of the papers and colours.

Thanks for stopping by today to have a wee look. I have the children home today for an in-service day. So hopefully the sun will shine. Have a wonderful day!

Hi Judy

Thanks for coming by.
I did look at ETSY some time ago.
I was confused by it all. (i get confused easily.) I can look at it again before making any changes.

I do think for now i will go ahead with the Saturday Shopping Store or something along those lines.

So appreciate that you come visit, and for allthe ideas you have.
