Fifi goes shopping...

Good morning folks, well the snow from yesterday seems to have disappeared for the time being although it's very frosty and baltic!!

Well you know it would only be a matter of time before Fifi would be on my blog and here she is...I love Fifi just as much as her pal Pippi..they are best pals on my desk!!

For my card today I have used a mix of papers from First Edition - Up and Away and Jillybean soup - Apple cheddar of my favourite colour combos. I have layered them onto kraft, seems to be my thing at the mo, oh and my other thing is the doodles. I distressed each of the layers..the stamp is Fifi goes shopping from sugar Nellie which I have coloured with copics. I added some glitter to the furry bits on her boots and jacket. The flowers have been cut with my MFT flower trio die which also doodled, the felt flower has been cut with the same fie and I threaded some twine and a button on to it....finished with a message and some gems.
