My Design Teams

Happy Saturday!

Hello campers! I hope you're well today!

Its another Saturday and so that means another challenge for you over at Sweet Stampin...this week I'm really excited because I have chosen the theme for you! I decided to pick the theme "fashion"...not because I'm uber trendy, but because I wanted to see all the different ways fashion can be shown by us crafters!

Our lovely weekly sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique, and they kindly gave me an image to play is the lovely Jade....

Looking at Jade's outfit here I think I've successfully demonstrated that I'm never going to be a fashion designer!! The fab layout for this card comes from this week's sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday....Arlana has three little flowers on the left hand side....I opted for these cute little bags to go with my fashion theme! Check out the SSW blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I got a little carried away with the theme this week and created a second card too, this one featuring one of my favourite sentiments...

Ever since I developed my dodgy knee I've had to stop wearing all my favourite high heels because they hurt my knee too much. So, instead I have to lust after my sister's amazing shoe collection and just hope that one day I'll be able to wear a pair of heels for more than five minutes without my knee hurting!

It doesn't stop me loving this sentiment though and I have my conquer the world shoes ready in my wardrobe! Hee, hee!

Don't forget to pop by all my fellow Sweet Stampin DT blog's to see their wonderful fashion creations and I look forward to seeing your cards this week!

One last piece of fantastic news I have to share today is that I sent my donation off to Marie Curie this week - the total was over £1090! I'm so touched by the generosity of everyone and want to thank everyone for their support. Its been a tough couple of months and I really appreciate everything that everyone has done for me. Thank you.

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Two fab cards hon, isn't it amazing how a pair of shoes can make all the difference!! Although I can't wear heels all that well. No dodgy knees (yet) I just can't walk in them!!

Congrats on the fund raising, you've done brilliantly. It's hard work pulling that together & YOU did it! Hugs xx
