The right pair of shoes....

Here's one I made for the Craftwork Cards USA blog - I used the lovely Bohemia collection which is quite sparkly, as you know I can never capture sparkly on photos, I need to go to a sparkly editing camera  class!




The shoes were cut using Gypsy wanderings on my Cricut. I was inspired by the lovely candi, which looked a bit like snakeskin to me......



and I have had this stamp for ages, one of those anonymous ones with no makers name on it........


A couple of you asked how the packing was going. The short answer to that is OH DEAR. My problem is that because of the expense of shipping overseas, the boxes need to be big, now fill a big box to the brim and it would take a fork lift truck to lift it. Maybe they have forklift trucks? Who knows. I do know that I will have plenty of coffee and cookies on hand next Wednesday to sweeten the removal guys, I am probably not going to be their favourite person on that day. Heck, I may get some beer in for them, they may forget the pain with a couple of pints....

Love the card. I haven't been able to use my cricut in so long, I'd forgotten about those lovely shoes! Well, maybe the promise of beer at the end of their day? lol Maybe some dunkin donuts in the AM and cookies in the PM. Good luck En, and I know you're looking forward to getting home, unpacking and settling down.
Big hugs, Jess

Beautiful card! I think you've got the right idea having food & drinks for the workmen..not too much drink though...that could backfire on you quick!

A truly gorgeous card! I love that sentiment. I have trouble photographing sparkles too. Actually, I have trouble photographing anything - I am really rubbish at it! xx

That is such a pretty card. I'm sure the glitter in person really adds to the beauty. I'm feeling so sad that you are moving even though I know it won't be any different than what it is now. I'm just not a "change" person. Good luck with the move and I hope everything arrives safely home.

Kristie Maynard said...

Beautiful card. Sounds like your end of the packing is moving along, now those guys that have to pick them up, well that's a whole other thing. Good luck!
