Thankful for Shopping

I wanted to share a card I did combining today's InStyle Stamps Thankful Thursday sketch, which was created by Melissa (great sketch, girl) and this week's Color Challenge (#200) on SCS. Don't you wish you could be as color coordinated as Suzie Q?? Somehow her clothes and accessories always match ... how does she do it ... lol. I love this retired Jersey Shore DSP ... very fun and retro. I paper pieced 3 of the bags. The sentiment is from Elzybells. Be sure to check out the cards on the blogs of these InStyle Stamps Design Team members:

Oh and thanks Melissa for the cool tip of using a CD and a craft knife to get a large circle for those of us that don't own a circle cutter. But rest assured I will be getting one because Stampin Up will be carrying them in their new Spring / Summer Idea Book & Catalog.

Hey Sandy, Angel Wings Shimmerz is what I have. It's a little white and will dull colors just a bit but I think it is the most versatile!
