Less is More - Week 130 - Pinterest Photo Inspiration

Well, would you Adam & Eve it.........two cards in two days - what's going on???? lol

Looking through the entries in the current challenge I saw a couple of cards using the same digi image of a shoe and as it was very familiar I went hunting in my photos to see if I had it - and I did.  That meant I can play again.  According to Daizy-Mae it's an old Sketching Stamper digi called  'The shoe'.

I decided that the occasion warranted me using another NBUS (never before used schtuff!!!) and in this case it's my Cheery Lyn Mexican Tile Pattern die which is absolutely gorgeous.  I re-sized and printed off the shoe image so it would fit inside the aperture.  I backed the Mexican Tile with some red card, added some red Liquid Pearls to the front of the shoe and then added Crystal Lacquer to the front and heel of the shoe.  The sentiment was computer generated and I added some Liquid Pearls in the corners of the card and inside the "o" of shoes.

We don't know whether we are coming or going with this moment it's blazing sunshine and then thunder and torrential rain - very weird, still we've managed to erect the trellis panels and new arch and I've got my climbers planted; they are definitely getting well watered in!  lol

Thanks for dropping by.
