Shoe Card for Funky Hand and a Sketch from Craftwork Cards

I have been making some samples for Anice, the owner of Funky Hand, using the fabulous Colour Me Happy CD. All the papers and the image were printed from the CD. I printed the shoe onto some spotty paper, punched some holes and threaded with ribbon. The square buttons are a paper from the CD, I just printed them out and cut out individual buttons


Here's another sketch from Craftwork Cards. I was a bit late getting this one in, but do pop over there to see what people have done with this sketch



I did a very literal interpretation of the sketch, papers, butterfly and card candy by Craftwork cards, flowers by Prima. I left off the second butterfly because it made the card look unbalanced

It's been a miserable couple of days weather-wise here in the UK. Lashing rain and quite cold. As I shopped for groceries I noticed that my handbag, slung over my shoulder, seemed really heavy, I was walking like Quasimodo. So when I got home I investigated - one purse, bulging with till receipts, a phone, a paperback book, another paperback book (I like reading....), a phone charger (??? -I have no idea), an iPod, a Nintendo DS both needing recharging , 7 lipsticks, 3 lip gels, 3 bottles of hand sanitizer, a tube of moisturiser, lip salve (as if I need that with all that lipstick), £4.65 in loose change, (mainly pennies that I had thrown in the bottom of the bag), my diary, a notepad and pen, a small umbrella, perfume, two of Kiki's hair slides and a random collection of stuff - bits torn out of newspapers and magazines, a half eaten bar of chocolate and so on. Add the three pairs of sunglasses I had in there, and I am pretty well prepared for anything, in fact I could probably go for a weekend break somewhere and survive quite well with just the contents of my bag. Heck, if I shoved a swimsuit and sarong in there I could go on holiday for a week - at least the sunglasses would come in useful.

  12. You really weighed your shoulders down with all of that but I do the same thing. As we go about our daily tasks, one by one: things go into the purse!

    Beautiful cards!!!!

  14. Which is exactly the reason why I carry a small handbag! I used to use the bigger ones, but I got tired of the 'Quazimoto shuffle' and being lopsided all the time.
    Cute cards. I love the literal use of the sketch. It's very pretty.
    Hugs, Jess

  15. Love, love, love your butterfly card! It is just too darn pretty! I really had to chuckle over your purse contents! Is it the size of a small suitcase? :) :) Send me some of your rainy weather and I'll send you some sunshine! It has been over 100 degrees with heat index of 110 for the past week with more on the way! TFS!

  16. I love your sketch card!
    The shoe card i really had to look at closely. i could have sworn you had to cut different papers, but no, it is just the cool polka-dotted paper with the image! Very cool.
    Your purse should be in the circus with the clown car! I think you'll need to stick a ladder in there too for that show!

  21. Just love that orange cleat. (That's what us yanks call those shoes. LOL) Your handbag contents made me laugh. I was wondering like the others, what size is your bag?

    ReplyDelete
  22. What great cards! The football boot one is so original, I love the ribbon threaded through the holes!

    My handbag is almost as heavy as yours, but that's because it's full of coppers that I throw in when I get change. Your bag sounds much more interesting!

    luv, Mags x

  23. I love this card! Boy, your handbag was full! Do you play the DS yourself??? 2 paperbacks, I can
    only handle one at a time. :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. LOL! I had to laugh at your handbag description! I do the same thing - throw things in there (some to never be found again) and don't take anything out!

    Both of these cards are really cute!
