Forever Young - shopping card

I have just received the Forever Young cartridge, this one is just up my street, lots of girlie images on it. I decided to have a bit of fun for my first card, and used just the bottom half of one of the 'girls'. she was cut at 6" in a flesh coloured cardstock, I added a bit of shading with my copic markers, then I drew in her shoes with a black pen.
The lettering is glittery thickers alphas by American Crafts, and some teensy making memories alphas

I have felt a bit like this gal this week, definitely horizontal rather than vertical, with a truly horrible cold. So I am on a go-slow this weekend, hoping I have a bit more energy soon.
Have a great weekend..............

Too much fun! Sometimes we feel like we will drop from shopping, lugging our bags and tired feet.

I'll have to check out that cartridge

So sorry to hear you are under the weather. Take care of yourself and you'll be better in no time. Isn't it about time for you to be back on this side of the ocean?
I love this card. I'm thinking this cartridge will have to go one my list of must haves. I recently ordered the Animal Kingdom one and Hello Kitty. I can't wait to get them so I can make better cards for kids. Hope you feel better soon. And thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.
Hugs,Jess
