TLT - Sally's Challenge - Shapes and a new Jess!!

I hope you've all had a lovely Easter weekend and you didn't eat too much chocolate lol! I've got a little stock pile of chocolate waiting until AFTER the wedding. I can't take the chance of not fitting into my MOB outfit...that just wouldn't do! Speaking of wedding...have you seen how many days are left...45 days....eeek!!! I can't believe how the time is flying will be here before we know it and I just hope we'll have everything done!!

Thank you for all your entries to our Spots and Stripes guys were outstanding! I think we got the most entries using an LCI image which we were all very excited about :-D You can hop on over to the Challenge Blog to see if you were a winner of a £10 spend in the LCI store. You'll get extra value for money this because all cling stamps are 1/2 price until Saturday ;-D

Today's Shapes Challenge has been brought to you by our lovely Sally. We want to see what shapes you've got ... something a bit more exciting than a square or rectangle though lol.

I don't know about you but I'm not a fan of odd numbers unless it has a 5 in it. When we released The Teenager's last month there were 13 images so not only was it an odd number that wasn't a 5 it was 13..unlucky for some!!! I got straight on the email and gave Ross my idea for another Jess to even up the numbers and here she is...

This is Shopping Jess...what teenager doesn't love to shop?! I think Jess is looking particularly gorgeous...must be the glow of having all those shopping bags lol. I used an Xcut die...Rectangle Parenthesis...I bought recently after seeing Susan's card...I just loved the shape. They come with a magnetic storage sheet which is brilliant.

After printing Shopping Jess I coloured some of the image with my Copics and paper pieced the rest. I used my new Basic Grey Hopscotch paper pad and Die namics Flower Trio AND new felt colours Baby Pink (top of the 3 flowers) and blush pink (right and top of image). Are they lush or what??!!!

I paper pieced 3 of the shopping bags, Jess's dress and her friend's top.

I used Lasting Impressions pearl brads to hold the flowers together

So there you have Shopping Jess. What do you think? Ok you could argue that there are 7 Jess's and 7 Josh's which is obviously an odd number but I'm working on it lol.

I'd love to enter my card in the following challenges:

Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Catered Crop - Brads
Robyn's Fetish - Anything Goes
Scrappy Frog Challenge - Shape It Up!
The Crafty Pad - Just Die-delicious
Craft Your Passion - Shaped Card
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

I'll be adding her to The Whole Shebang so you will now receive all 14 images for £19 saving £5.50. You can also purchase her individually for £1.75 or add her to your Multi-buy (just click on Teenager Multi-buy below Jess and enter your choice in the comment box) purchase of 3 digis for £4.50 saving 75p.

Ok I think that's me for today. I'm looking forward to seeing your Shape entries so skedaddle and start creating!!

Catch ya later x

This is such a gorgeous card Kerry. I am glad you have used that die as I had seen them in the shop but just couldn't imagine what the die would cut out as..... Those felt flowers were the 1st thing that jumped out at me, they are truly lush :)

Best of luck with all the pearls - 5700 my goodness that would panic me!!!

So sorry to hear of your loss as well and hope that your cousin is better soon - the beautiful card will certainly brighten her day.
