Girlie girlie card

The papers for this one are really pretty aren't they? I love bag and shoe cards for girlfriends. This one is another Papercraft Inspirations magazine card..............................

I like using this cuttlebug folder for shoes, really makes them look like snakeskin
Papers K & co
Shoes - Cricut Wedding solutions cartridge cut at 3"
Purse - Paisley Cricut cartridge cut at 4"
Tiny sentiment - clear Papermania sticker stuck onto pink card
Martha Stewart floral lace border punch
Inking - colourbox bronze cats eye
We have to strip the kitchen of furniture tomorrow - the decorator arrives on monday morning. I like the idea of having it all sparkling and fresh, hate the process you have to go through to get there. A decorator is a better option than us doing it ourselves, we have learnt that joint decorating in our case is a straight swift road to marital disharmony - so better not to go there! Mike is thorough, painstaking and slow, I am slapdash, messy and hasty. I end up covered in paint, Mike never has the tiniest spot on him (unless he gets too close to my paint brush). Funny how I can painstakingly spend hours on getting a single card just right, and yet have so little patience when it comes to walls doors and ceilings

Enfys...what an enabler you are!!! I have to have that paper! I like K n Company as it is! But I love this stuff! And when I see how you have used a Martha punch that I don't have, I have to have that too!:) Thanks for sharing, love the card. Can't wait to see the pics of the new kitchen.

Being a shoe and bag girl myself, I really love this card. The colors and papers are just beautiful. You always have the best composition on your cards.

If you really want to end up in the divorce lawyer's office, try wallpapering together! hugs, eileen
