Shopping Diva Melanie!

Good morning! Today I have a card to share that I created using this fun Melanie image {Rubber Romance} from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copics. The paper is from Basic Grey's LilyKate and I paper pieced the shopping bags using the same patterned paper. I didn't want to make this card too fussy because I think the image really stands on its own - it's such a cool one, plus it is a pretty good size and I didn't want to have it lost in a sea of flowers or something! :-)

Be sure to visit the SCACD store blog today, as the multi-talented Christine has a rockin' new tutorial up on making mini pizza boxes - SO stinkin' cute!! How fun would those be for a little gift set?! Thanks for the great ideas Christine!

We are still on vacation {so this is an auto-post} but I will be back this weekend and will be catching up on blogs and e-mail so if you've been waiting to hear from me, it will be soon, I promise! Hope you have a wonderful day!
