Sundae Shoes

I was sent these stamped images by Nikki, one of my team mates from BBTB2 after admiring them on her blog. Thanks Nikki, I love them. I think the images are by Stampendous, not sure though.....I am sure one of you will know
The papers are by SEI and I used a Martha deep edge punch for the lacy borders.
I love a play on words, and this card would be perfect for a shoeaholic girlfriend
I've had a lot of emails from the USA asking about the Lili of the Valley stamps, used in yesterday's card. They are a UK company, click on the link to get to the site. They ship internationally and their prices are very good. The dollar exchange rate is roughly $1.50 to the UK pound at the moment.
Back in the swing here, in some ways it's as if we never left. I wandered into Dunkin Donuts (you may remember my addiction to their coffee), and the girl serving just said 'large iced caramel latte, cream, extra caramel, no sugar, right?
Now this demonstrates one of two things, either she should be using that memory to do some research for her PhD, or I go into DD far too often for that order while I am here.

  1. Adorable card, Enfys. And I'm one of those shoe alcoholics. Although I've been under control the past year and a half because of the economy. Hope your time back in the U.S. is an enjoyable one.

  3. I'd say that you're a DD-aholic! You must be if she can rattle off your order like that! Esp, since you've been in the UK for the last 3 months!!! Gotta say it sounds yummy.

  7. Hiya En -just popped in to see what you're up to.I was a shoe-a-holic but since my feet won't play along I've become a craft-a-holic(OK OK I'll sign the 'fession)I was a craft-a-holic but it's got worse and you waving Martha Stewart punches around doesn't help either Hugs and more hugs BettyXXX

  12. I really like that image En, and love what you've done with it.

    I've got some LOTV stamps, but I had to wait for them to finish at the NEC before I could order them...It would've been quicker for me to go to the NEC to buy them!

  14. Hehehe, LOVE IT!!! I love the MS punches!!! As for the gal at DD, I think the answer would be BOTH! LOL The coffee there is very good! I also like their breakfast with the egg whites and turkey sausage. Yummy. The donuts are so good too, I like them much better than Krispy Kreme, believe it or not! LOL

    Happy Sunday Enfys!!!!

    *hugs*

  18. Sundae shoes!!!! Now that is cute!
    I think you're right about your coffee girl...She's got her own memory... and I think she's stolen mine too... That must be where it's gotten too... I surely don't have it.
    Considering that it's been about 4 months since you've seen her, she must have an amazing memory. Hugs & TFS
