Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE to shop! I know, there must be somthing wrong with me. It is pretty sad when my hubby's clothes take up 3/4 of our closet! The reason I am telling you this is that I thought I was going to have a hard time with little miss Suzie Q because she is carrying more shopping bags than I will bring home in a year. LOL Well, when I found this cute little box at Archiver's last week I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. I thought it would be cute to put Suzie Q on the front of the box and use it to hold receipts in since she is holding shopping bags.
To make Suzie Q, I stamped her 5 times. Once on Cocoa, Buttercup, and Colonial White CS, once on patterned paper and twice on Crystal Blue CS. I then cut out and glued on each of the shopping bags and Suzie Q's top. Everything else was colored in with CTMH markers.
Supplies used to create card:
Stamp: Suzie Q, InStyle Stamps
Paper: My Reflections Emporium paper pack
Embellishments: Hero Arts sparkle flower, American Crafts boutique blanc ribbon, CTMH Clear Inspirations charm
5 1/2 x 7 1/2 box (unsure of company that makes it, but purchased it at Archiver's)
I hope that I have inspired you in some way!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Meet Suzie Q from InStyle Stamps!
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
