Calling All Shoppers!

I am loving these two Emerson Gals...they 'say it all' really!! I was sent these in a RAK from Sharon (aka *Doris* on SCS) Thank you so much Sharon, I have enjoyed them immensely!! I just love the look on this gals face - what a classic expression! The funny thing is, I am not really a shopper - well, let me clarify that...if I was going to craft supplies or something along those lines - count me in - but just for looking and browsing - it drives me mad!! I am continually conscious of the time being wasted, it is not at all relaxing....BUT I have plenty of friend who LOVE to 'shop until they drop' so they are going to identify with these all the way!!

I have used this weeks Sketch Challenge and Mojo Monday again as I am really enjoying it, they also fits with these cards really well. Personally, I love these colours together....I still have not cut into any new pages and have not even made a dent in the scraps...but I am doing my best! I have also had my first introduction to PRIMAS...and I love them - how pretty is this one, which is part of a BLOG CANDY I won from Judy (aka StampingQueenJAR) yet another thing we don't get here (as far as I know) I also used a flourish that I have sitting in a zip lock bag - I went mad one day and just cut heaps of them - now I am trying to use them more!! These Emerson gals are coloured with chalks, with a little bit of Glitter Pen used on their outfits for highlights!!

Thank you for stopping by, I have another couple of Emerson's to use and will make some more tonight, different images again...which makes it so much fun! I am hoping to get a little bit more done before my two DD's get home around 9pm this evening from the snow. They have had a great time...my littlest DD is so cute, so independent in many ways...but when she is away she just loves to text and 'touch base!' She sent one at 1am and 6:30am and then proceeded to try and have a whole conversation by text....don't you just love that - I hope she always feels that way. DD2, well she rang yesterday afternoon, in amongst all of the noise and spent most of the time yelling out to her friends and the new ones she has made...she is a PARTY WAITING FOR SOMEWHERE TO HAPPEN!! It was so lovely to hear that they had been having devotions...as a parents, we are so thankful that our kids peers are Christians and great kids, we try and ENCOURAGE them to stay with this group and steer them away for negative influences - such a hard thing to do without making them think we are controlling them...this parenting...we never get off our 'L' Plates do we...learning each day!! I am sure you know the feeling!

I hope you are having a great weekend with your family and friends....God bless you and hopefully, I you will come back and visit!!

  3. Sounds like your girls are having a ball! Isn't it lovely when your kids have great friends. My eldest is 15 now but is still great mates with his friend he met at Kindy when they were 4! Love the chalking on the Emersons by the way! Let me know when you need some more!
