Kick Up Your Heels And Have Fun!

Hello and Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a fab holiday season.  Thank you for visiting me and for my first card of the year its a simple one to ease me in gently!


The main shoe image and sentiment I have had stamped on the die cut for years!  It was already embossed with clear powder too.  I stamped it at a craft club I used to go to therefore I really can't tell you the make as the stamp was one that I borrowed.  The scalloped dies used were Spellbinder Large Scallop dies - I know that as the ones I have are the small set.  I really wanted to enter Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge which is fairies, elves, pixies and gnomes this time, and with it finishing very shortly I needed to come up with a very quick card!  I remembered this stamped image, miraculously found it, coloured the shoe with Berry Red Promarker and using my Misti, I stamped the little fairy from the Secret Garden set by Cardio Stamps on the sentiment and added glitter to her wings.  Glued the layers together and added the black stones from my stash in the corners and job done!  I love that little fairy as you can sit her anywhere and she completely changes the image!  I don't know why I thought of adding her to this image - the thought just popped into my head!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge - Fairies, Elves, Pixies and Gnomes.
Country View Challenges - Anything Goes.
That's Crafty - Anything Goes.

Thank you again for visiting me,  Have a good week and take care!  Christine xxx
