Shopping in The Snow

I've used this vintage photo a lot over the years, and always thought of it as a Christmas shopper, but now I realise that all her packages are wrapped. I suppose she must be shopping in those department stores where they offer to gift-wrap for you! The snow in the picture is not the cold, wet snow that turns into dirty slush and ruins your shoes. Who'd want to go shopping in that?

The photo is from Joanna Sheen Fashion CD. I used a snowfall embossing folder, snowflake punch and the sentiment and building are die-cuts.

I'd like to enter:
CD Sunday - sprinkle of snowflakes
Tuesday Throwdown shopping spree
Cardz for Gals fashion chic
Suzy Bees Bloomin Challenge  die cut

I like this image - I am not surprised you have used it before. We are seeing more and more of 'past times' images and they are great to see.
Thank you for joining in with us.

I like this combo of vintage image with pops of color against an all white background, and how decorative that row of buildings is!
