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 by...it 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 Challenge...you 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.
