A girl, her shoes and her attitude!!!

Have you ever put on a FABULOUS pair of shoes and your whole attitude changes. You feel hot in those shoes, you know your looking good!! Let me tell you I love shoes, stilletos, boots, sandals, flip flops, they make me happy. A beautiful stilleto like the one on my card would definately make its way home with me. I used Taylors sketch for this card, it was so fun to make, its so me!!

This picture doesnt do the designer paper justice. The paper has glitter on the harliquin which goes perfectly with the stamped shoe that I covered with prisma glitter. I edged the nesties with vanilla cream ink and a small dab of chocolate ink, I actually inked the edges of every piece of paper.

Humbled Artist Art

This is my contribution for September. The challenge was to random stamp a piece of cardstock, add 2 seperate pieces of B/T, use 3 brads and one other embellishment. I just realized as I type this and stare at the card Iam posting that I forgot to add the 3 brads in the top right corner of this card that I placed in the right top corner of the other cards I swaped out(they were white) BUMMER it really gave it a final PUNCH. I added glitter around the edges of the white cardstock to give it a real sparkley christmas feel and of course the bling was a must!!

One of my favorites

Okay, what a silly title. You all know a stamper cant have a favorite, all our stamps are favorites right? If we had no favorites we would have no stamps LOL!!!

This stamp is by Stampendous from there retro collection, I really like the use of items to spell JOY!! A little liquid applique polishes this card off just right!!

World Card Making Day blog hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart 2009 World Card Making Day Blog Hop! Join me and 17 other CTMH consultants as we share our card creations with you. If you've come from Jessicas blog then you're hopping down the right path.

For my card I wanted a vintage look, so I used a stamp set that had this vintage looking tree, I aged the edges of the papers, added glitter and bling to the tree to make it look like those old vintage tinsel trees (remember those) and the tag just added to the theme!! I added lots of layers and I popped my tree piece because I LUV to pop things off my cards!
