CAS13: Shopping Cuppie


CAS13 sketch

This week’s Clean and Simple challenge {CAS13} is a sketch and here is my card!  I used my Downtown Diva set by Stamp a Sweet Impression available at Taylored Expressions since some of my images in the set hadn’t been inked up yet.  Not sure why, but this layout & images screamed bright colors to me so I used Tempting Turquoise & Pink Passion with black accents for my card and finished it off with the funniest shopping sentiment, “people who may money can’t buy happiness don’t know where to shop”-HA! 

I guess I should admit I am not a real girly shopper in the traditional sense.  I don’t necessarily have to have the latest & greatest and I am definitely not a name brand type of gal.  I usually do my shopping when it’s absolutely necessary or I am super stressed out (beats eating?!) not so sure about that but what helps me control my spending is challenging myself to keep my $ as long as I can to earn interest & be happy with what I have!  I am blessed to be on some awesome design teams that send me free product and that helps me to save $ I would normally want to spend on the product I love!  Taylored Expressions is one of those for sure!  Did you check out the new release stuff yesterday?  Oh my – great stuff EVERY 5th of the month!!    

Have a ‘Sweet’ Day!
