Dotty about shopping!

Oh what a day, my nose is going mad with all the dust in the house! We are left with no hot water all weekend as the valves on the water tank gave out. I also have no washing machine:( Not a happy bunny! But they will be back first thing Monday morning and hopefully finish everything off. I am pleased with how it all looks at the minute bar the little hiccups. My new room looks so big!
Onto my card. This is for a 40 year old who enjoys a bit of shopping. I love this stamp from Whiff of Joy and I used these gorgeous dotty papers from Kit n Kraft along with my embossing folder, glitter and gorgeous flowers with gems from Petaloo (I think). The image is coloured with promarkers and glitter.

Hi Pinky I just stopped by to say THANK YOU EVER SOOO MUCH for the beautiful card you made for me at our wedding aniversary! When my step-daughter saw it she asked if you made "that" (referring to the embossed part) yourself or baught it! She had never seen it before!

You really make marvellous cards and I feel happy to be the owner of one of them!

Just another question (I made the same one for Mandy); do you make the scalloped card base yourself or buy them?? They look so good and I'd like to start using them, too!

Hugs from Sweden,

Charlotta / La Vikinga
