Another Shoe....

 Here's one I made with a perfectly lovely shoe stamp from UK company Katy Sue Designs.....

Coloured with ProMarkers the paper is from the Sherbert collection by Craftwork Cards, and the Happy Birthday die is by Memory Box - this one is going to get a LOT of use by me...

Thanks for all the very interesting comments on my last post, it made fascinating reading. 

I am all packed, and by the time you read this will probably be on a train somewhere between here and Leeds. The workshop is a full house (nervous, hope it all runs like clockwork) and I am sure we will have a lot of fun. On Saturday night we are going with Julie and Sue to see the Strictly Come Dancing live show. Break out the fake tan and sequins. Expect lots of photos next week, and for those of you who won't be there tomorrow, I may have a little treat for someone....

See you then x


  1. What a cute card Enfys, I love that stamp!! Your coloring is great. I love that die also!!
    Pretty colors. I love brown and blue together.

  2. Lovely card. Beautiful shoe image. Hope your workshop goes very well. Safe travels to you!

  3. Luv that shoe stamp!!!! and the card is fabulous!!!! wished I was able to see your British channels...but I'll wait patiently for your pics and stories...enjoy yourself....

  4. I love this beautiful card ... the shoe is gorgeous! Enfys, I know I've told you many times how much your lovely creations inspire me, and they do. But this time, the inspiration came in a different way. (I'll make no excuses for the way my mind works ... it is what it is and there is nothing I can do about it.) As I was admiring your lovely shoe, thoughts and images started flooding my head. If you allow me a moment, I'll share them with you ...

    Enfys, this story’s quite simple
    And inspired by you
    Do you recall the old woman
    who lived in a shoe?

    With rambunctious kids
    It looked so tattered and torn
    Through the years that poor shoe
    Had become weathered and worn.

    As her children had grown
    They’ve moved on as kids do
    Now she sits each night alone
    In that ratty old shoe

    Till she said, “Forget all of this
    I’ll not wallow in pity
    I shall sell this old shoe
    And move into the City”

    So she sold that old shoe
    And got a heck of a deal
    Then she purchased another
    T'was a darling high heel

    Oh she fixed it up grand
    Adding flowers and such
    And of course there was bling
    For the finishing touch

    Now she’s happy and smiling
    With a heart filled with laughter
    And that’s how she lived
    Every day … EVER AFTER!

    Best wishes on your workshop. I know it will be an outstanding success. HAVE FUN!
