You're a Doll...

Hey there!

I'm returning to a more wintery card today featuring the darling Shopping Makes Me Happy stamp from Dreamerland Crafts. As much fun as I've been having coloring in forest and landscape type scenes for my stamped characters I thought that this image provided a new challenge for me to tackle. Truth be told, the idea of sketching in the more structured lines of store fronts made me quite nervous. But I was inspired by Sandy Allnock and her scenery skills give me the courage to try too. In the end it isn't perfect and there are things I will do different next time but I have to remind myself that all the little flaws I see don't matter because the buildings aren't the star of the show, that beautiful stamp is! All you really notice is her taking a stroll on a sunny winter's day. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
