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
