Connie Shopping
Sweet Sketch 80

Good Morning!  It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday again. 
And I have choosen this darling image from
Digi Stamp Boutique called "Connie Shopping." 
It reminded me of my mother who would, could and did shop 'til she dropped.  She could find so many fun treasures...many times under $10.  Her children and grandchildren were often the recipients of her great finds!  She was nearly 83 when she passed away but she always dressed in style with outfits coordinated from head to toe!
Sure miss her!  I had better stop there as I am getting quite teary thinking about her!

Arlana has provided us with a great sketch this week! I know you will enjoy creating with it!

  6. Fab card Judi - I love this image, I have it myself. Really like the colour combo you've used, your papers are lovely. What a nice memory of your mum too. Hope you have a good week. Wedgie xxx

  7. Wow, I have been thinking alot about mom and dad this week and your thoughts of mom just brought back so many memories. I have been pretty teary eyed this week anyway. I miss them too. Your cand is just perfect. I love your wonderful DP and your colors are some of my favorites. I love that adorable image. As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of mom too. Love you lots Judi!

  8. Fab card!! love the border punch

  9. love your card! great colors and style!

  10. what a yummy color mix ~ wuv it ~ just as that darlin lil image! fabulous card chickie!

  11. Well Judi that answers that question-I was just thinking how well coordinated your cards are. From the colors to the embellishments to the papers. Everything relates to each other. I think it's from your Mom! Really enjoyed reading your description of her. My grandmother is that way when she goes shopping - even today at age 90! I do love this image and almost selected it this week-we always seem to be on the same wavelength! Love the flower and the ric rac and the edge punch - perfectly coordinated!

  12. Hi Judi, I just love your card has to be my very favourite this week. You've used my colours love it love it. I just love that Fisker Boarder Punch isn't it great? Your card is just magic!!! Perfect!!!! You bought tears to my eyes about your Mum she seemed very much like mine. She always had something for everyone especially me as I was the youngest. If I think of her right now she would be in that kitchen baking for Christmas and it's so hot here and humid.

  13. I wish I looked this put together after shopping, I always look a mess and I am exhausted! LOL! She looks fabulous in her matching outfit. Even her shopping bags match. *Grin* super cute card.

  14. I love the green and purple together. Her little outfit is too cute! I understand missing someone so much, especially at the holidays. My husband died last year. Big hugs to you!

  15. Hi Judi, first my apologies for just now getting around to commenting from last week. Seems the week got away from me before I knew it!!
    Love your card with your beautiful colors of lime and purple!! Your broder punch and rick rack look great together!! Such a beautiful card!!
