Coffee Break - The Paper Shelter - TPSDT

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well and getting sorted for Christmas.  This weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter is 'Shopping Spree'.  Unfortunately there are only a couple of images that fit the challenge so thinking out of the box I have an online shopper. (Have to admit I do that a lot, save all the hassle of crowds and freezing).
For today's challenge I have used the image 'Coffee Break' and made my own sentiment to fit the challenge.

A really simple design but I think it shows off the image well. She is cut with SB Lattice Rectangles and mounted on coordinations card. The ribbon and corners are from my stash.

She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers with a little Prisma pencil for added details. I also added distress ink to the background.

The backing papers are from Dovecraft and I added glossy accents to her glasses and to the laptop.

The prize this week, as always is a $30 voucher if you use a paper shelter image, or 3 digis of your choice for any other image.  

The other DT girls have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration, I hope you will pop over and see them.

Thanks for looking

Hiya Stranger, hope things are going well for you. Have you managed to finish all the Chrismtas shopping yet? Jo and I did all of ours last week and anything that fell through the cracks will be purchased over the interweb (just ;ike your card suggests!!).
We are both doinhg okay at the moment and are really looking forward to Christmas with just the two of us. I don't seem to be as mental at the moment so I think the old happy pills seem to be evening me out. Jo is the same as usual, in lots of pain but not really moaning about it as there is little point until we can get an op for her.
Hope you are going to have a really Christmas with your family, love to all.
Loving the cards as usual, the one below is just stunning, fantastic design and as ever beautifully coloured, I must get myself some TriMarkers if you would recommend them.
Hope you and yours have a great xmas and new year,
Al our love
Andy and Jo
