My Besties Goes Shopping {Scrapbook Stamp Society}

Please leave a comment to become eligible for my September blog candy here.

Greetings, dear blogging friends! I am Guest Designing from My Besties images today.

And a very special welcome to new google followers Ina Good and Lady Anne.

Today's card share features a great Sketch from Your Next Stamp Challenge, bright sunny goldenrod yellow from Cupcake Inspirations and this darling little My Besties image. She is all decked out for shopping, something I actually detest!


It is shopping for crafting supplies, of course.

"I Love Shopping" Bestie can be found here.

She would be really cute in Christmas colors as well, preparing for the festivities about to come!

"I Love Shopping Bestie" is attired in late Summer/early Autumn hues (by Copic Markers), bringing sunny cheer to each of the shop personnel she greets.

The September sketch from Your Next Stamp Challenge was used.

It's a great design!

The papers are of unknown origin. They are a gift from my very talented blogging friend Marie Berquist. Because some matching embellishments were included with the Basic Grey logo on them, the papers may be by Basic Grey also. (Thank you, Marie! Are you surprised I've already utilized them?)

Love these bright colors from the Cupcake Inspirations Challenges this week! The bright yellow and kraft colored cardstock are perfect complements for this darling card!

The bow is from Stampin' Up Grosgrain ribbon, a Prima Flower, and sewn with a "Tiny Findings" button purchased from Michaels. The other buttons were stitched to the sketch layer, after the panels were stitched to the white panel. Martha Stewart Vintage Floral PAP is beneath the sweet Hero Arts sentiment.

Hanging my head in shame:
Prima Flower - gift from friend (never before used)
Hero Arts Stamap - about 6 years old (and never used)
SU Ribbon - about 5 years old (and never used)

Redeeming myself:
Patterned Papers - gift from Marie (arriving 2 days ago!)
