Another Fabulous Shoe

Oh, I do so love the Katy Sue 'Fabulous Shoes' CD at the Newbury craft show back in the Summer.

Made this card a few weeks ago and forgot all about it- all the elements go together so well, images, backgrounds and embellishments - and am sure I've only scratched the surface of what other extras there are:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank

- all elements, even the plain mauve backing paper, were printed from the CD - mostly as I'd forgotten all about the little trick of just swiping round the edges of plain card with a Pro Marker if you don't have matching plain card or paper. That would save quite a bit on ink I expect

- I thought the card was fine to leave without a sentiment as the background is already quite busy

All unpacked here, a mountain of laundry to do but that will be done bit by bit over the coming few days. There's not actually any pressure for sarongs, shorts etc to be turned round quickly here in the UK right now :(

My next challenge is to actually venture into the craft room (yippeeeee) to make my Rudolph Day card to join in the fun over at Sarn's. There's a lovely Memory Box die on offer, kindly donated by ScrappyMo. I already have the same die and it's one of my very favourite ones for Christmas time too, why not give it a whirl?

Do remember that the Playground is open for a day longer this week :) I hope to do the write-up on Sunday morning ready for a new week beginning at midnight the same day.

Have a super weekend, I think we might be busy tying stuff down in the garden judging by the forecast for 'gale force winds' on Monday :(

This is a fancy, shmancy shoe!!! Love the shoe background paper and your flower embellishments - so pretty! You're so right, laundry can wait ... especially when there's crafting to be done! :) Loll xx

Isn't it amazing how much laundry comes home after vacation! lol

This is such a pretty card. That was a versatile CD as I can think of a zillion uses for this!

Mmmm Mmmm . . . I LOVE the look of this card. That shoe image is beautiful. Wish I could draw something like that!

We have storms predicted for Monday too. Currently got washing on line . . . but may have to dash out to retrieve it by the looks of that black cloud hovering nearby!

Lovely card Di! Welcome home - notice you didn't bring the nice weather with you! The dies were both from Simon Says Stamp as well as the mask. Sorry didn't write the post very well!!

Oh dear, more shoes to die for - if only I could still wear heels that high, sigh! Now see what you've done with your fabulous card, Di :) The colours are lovely but what a waste of ink ... you'll remember next time ... maybe :)) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

No doubt you will enjoy every minute of the extra hour tonight.
