Window Shopping with Kristy

I'm having a bittersweet day today. I worked Monday on the holiday because it was the first day of school so I'm taking today off which is great! But my dear friends, Lynn and Molly, are off to Stamp Vermont today and I so wish I was going with them. :( With moving to Florida next month, I made the adult decision to save my money but I'm there with them in spirit. But then they're going to stop by a new stamping and scrapping store so I'm so sorry to be missing that with them. So I went shopping on my own!

Me, I love me some Rubber Romance and I have had Kristy in my mind for the longest time. I get all my Rubber Romance stamps from my sweet and patient friend, Susana, at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. She's been so great with me this summer in not being able to make commitments or being late because of Nichole's wedding and then getting ready for the opening of school and then next month with my move to Florida. I think about you all the time and promise to be better with calling and keeping in touch. I love you lots, my dear friend! This Rubber Romance babe is for you!

It's been a while since I've done a semi-sassy card so I wanted to work with her. I have had her done several ways but the Glossy Accents kept running when I tried to cover the windows so I decided to highlight a few of the items instead. I colored her with copics and highlighted the windows with my Spica Glitter pen. I used my new nestabilities on her and colored the ribbon with my copics (something I learned at Stamp New England in March with Lynn, Molly and I went! :)) I used my new MS edge punch to give it just a touch of elegance and added a couple of Bella Baubles in the corner. I was pretty pleased with her!

And just because I didn't used any stickles, I sprayed some Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz on her. Since I don't get to shop with Lynn and Molly, I felt like I should do a bit of window shopping for myself! Lynn and Molly, have a blast and come back and tell me everything you learn and do!

Card Ingredients:

Kristy by Rubber Romance, Bella Baubles, Shimmerz Spritz, Atyou Spica Glitter Pen, nestabilities, copics, ribbon, MS arch lattice punch.
