Handbags and Haribo's


Still reliant of the help of Mr Blogger, so hopefully today will be Saturday and time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Amanda is our hostess with the mostest for our final Free and Easy July theme.

Today we are scheduled to be in Kusadasi in Turkey, home of all things designer........fake 'labels' that is, so there will be some serious shopping going on here and that little Prada number I bought for £15 last visit needs replacing. And what are the children looking forward to here.........the Haribo shop, last week we had a whole evening re-living their previous visit...........it is a rather large shop dedicated purely to those chewy sweets, but I ask you Haribo's when you have travelled half way round Europe to get there.


So my cards, the one above so so simple that all I can tell you is I used some scraps of DP to create a border punched with Martha Stewart doily lace, made a flower out of organza ribbon and some leaves punched with another MS punch. The sentiment is Penny Black 4071F.

And the one at the top of my post uses several Hero Art stamps, TH inks dusky concorde, peeled paint and marigold. The card itself was created using Grand Nesties labels four.

Both delightful & I love the way you move from a multi-design to a CAS, & carry both. I particularly like the top one with the layered stamping complemented so well by your layering.
Enjoy the Haribo dream.......... & hope you replace the Prada OK.

How simple way you create spectacular design in white paper. I impress with your peerless creation also advice to my sister, include this same art work in your school studies.

Four layers with perfect cutting work, I never used this style. Looks gorgeous and those ribbon and texture is perfect. These both are my favorite.
