If the shoe fits buy it in every colour!

I made this card for a very dear friend whom I have known for more than 30 years. She loves fashion and shoes and worked in shoe shops for years and you would never think she is 70. She loves the LOTV images so I bought this one especially to make her card. I coloured her with Promarkers, papers are Dovecraft Piece of Cake. I remembered I had some high heeled shoe charms and this one finished off the card beautifully. Janet also loves flowers so just had to add those too. I made another diamond card, instructions on my tutorial page.

Challenges:
Creative Card Crew Best foot forward
Charisma Bingo (I used Circles, ribbons, charms)
Sir Stampalot Anything Goes

The sun came out yesterday afternoon and we have sun and cloud this morning and it is quite breezy but dry so far. Hope it stays that way as we are off to the coast this afternoon to see a show this evening. Have a few jobs to do and lunch to cook first.
