Mac & Flowers - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello, hope you've all been enjoying the weekend.  I should have been in the craft room all day, but hubby talked me into going out - we've been out with MIL, shopping and to Pizza Hut, yum!  I've actually bought clothes for myself... I hate clothes shopping, but my jeans are all falling apart... found some I liked in Next and MIL bought me a top too :o)

Anyway... here's a card my mum asked me to make, for one of her friends who has a little westie.  I'm not sure if you can really tell from the photos, but I printed the image out a few times and layered it up with foam pads (as per mum's latest liking for decoupage... not that she wants to do any herself obviously lol!).

Annette said...

Sounds like you had a nice time shopping. I use to really like Next and could find lots of stuff I liked, but in the last couple of years I just can't find things that I like in there now, but perhaps that's just because I don't have the patience to look any more. If it doesn't slap me in the face as I walk in the store, I walk out again without picking anything up.

Your card is lovely honey. I love the little doggie's expression with his raised eyebrows!!! Love the pearl centres too.

Jude said...
