It's freezing in Melbourne at the moment, raining and hailing. Good to stay indoors, so I thought I'd make a card - something warm and cosy to take away the chill outside. 

There is something beautiful and peaceful about glowing lanterns on the water. I combined Lawn Fawn's 'Lunar Lights' and the sweet fox from 'Critters in the Forest' and created this card :) The lovely distress inks I used are fiery warm!

I am entering this into Lawnscaping Challenge #9

Have a lovely day or night and thanks for stopping by! :)

I like my money right where I can see it - hanging in my closet.
 - Sex and the City

I love to shop and Lawn Fawn's 'Say Cheese' polaroid stamp was the perfect framework for my little store :)

I created the door by cutting out the middle of the polaroid stamp image, then roughly cutting two windows and drawing a doorknob. Then I paper-pieced the dress from Lawn Fawn's 'Sew Lovely', added some bling and finished it off with some dusky lanterns against a sponged lavendar background. The gorgeous designer papers are from Memory Box's Brioche collection. I adore the polka dots!

I can't wait to create more little stores - like a book or toy store (besides clothes, I love to shop for these things)! :D

This card would have been perfect for Wee Memories' Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Challenge, but I just missed out so I'll be entering this into the Paper Piecing Challenge at Wee Memories instead:

Thanks for visiting and hope you're having a happy weekend! :)
