A Sneaker Card..............

It's ages since I used this shoe cut from My Community, that was the reason I bought the cartridge in the first place. I cut the shoe at 4 1/2", the base card is 6 x 6 square. The colours are a bit 'off in the photo, I took it late at night.

I cuttlebugged the sole of the shoe, the sentiment circle is a button by Craftwork Cards, I think it makes the shoe look just like a Converse trainer - the sort I always buy for Kiki when I am in the USA (half the price over there)

The stitching is faux - I took this close up to show what I am talking about, I just ran the card through with the sewing machine unthreaded, then joined the dots
Cricut machine and My Community Cartridge
Papers DCWV
Flowers Prima
Sentiment button Craftwork Cards
Border punch Martha Stewart


I am getting ready for my week on Holidays with the Cricut, which starts tomorrow. I am a bit nervous, so be sure to come on over and see what I have been up to, this is my plea for a bit of bloggyland solidarity. If you don't know the site, they give away a cricut cartridge EVERY week, and you get heaps of inspiration there as well. The gals who own the site, Joy, Melanie and Tammy are a real hoot, as well as being uber talented. I will be posting on here as usual this week, but there will be more detail on the Holidays site. Come and watch, there's a couple of wobbly videos for you to laugh at as well.


Anyone else sick of Valentines? I seem to have been making 'lurve' cards for months now for various magazines (in fact, I was making Valentines in October). I am awash with red hearts, can't wait for the Easter bunnies to start hopping around (although I made some Easter cards in December as well). This is the week when I wish I was a florist, so that I could quadruple the price of red roses and get away with it (before indignant florists jump on me, I know it's the suppliers not you).

See you tomorrow I hope. Stay warm, especially if you are in the north east of the USA

  30. I've always loved your shoe cards & I always forget I have that cart. The colors are very springy & take my mind off the 10 degree temperature & the snow up to my knees.
