Shoe Lovers Delight



This week's Card Positioning sketch intrigued me so I thought I would give it a try.

For some reason, this bright pink Echo Park Dots and Strips DP spoke to me, so I paired it with some equally bright green DP - time to bring out the shades LOL!  The bright colours lead to think of a funky card, so I pulled out this $1.50 shoe stamp I got at Mike's a few years back and blinged it up.

Since I have a few friends with shoe fetishes, I had to add a sparkly heart over the shoe.  Needless to say, one of them will be receiving this card somewhere along the say :)


Yesterday was the last day of school for my kids so summer is officially here.  I told them if I hear the "I'm bored" statement before the first three weeks of summer there will be severer consequences - like helping clean out the basement and the like LOL!  Thankfully our first two weeks are busy with camping and VBS.

With summer also comes more sporadic posting.  Some weeks may be great, some weeks may only be my Inkspirations Challenge post on Fridays.  I'm aiming to do three posts a week when we are in town.  Hopefully, I can be fairly consistent with that goal, but summer is a strange beast and I have a long list of things to do with the kids as well as a list of things that need to get done around the house, so I just thought I'd give you a heads up.

With that being said, come back tomorrow for my sample of this week's Inkspirations challenge :)  Bye for now.
