Stef showed us a wonderful little kids shoe website, Bugaloo, for the inspiration challenge over at Split Coast. I was inspired by many of them! but finally settled on this cute pair.I cut my branch with a Sizzix leaf/stem die and the cut outs are a leaf from Spellbinder Flower Creations 3. The bird is a Spellbinder also. The only stamping on this is the Amuse sentiment. I used a corner rounder on the off-white Bazzill panel and popped it up on foam dimensionals so you could see more depth where the leaves are cut out.
My DH has deserted me and gone up to his sister's cottage in NH for a few days to help her with some renovations in her kitchen and bathroom - so I'm going to be here all alone with my kitties and probably have to stamp the whole time - don't you feel sorry for me!?!!? (That's why it's 2 am and I'm still up and posting a card!!)
Have a great weekend everyone - we just may float away here in rainy New England - but boy - is the grass really GREEN!
ETA: Hot tip! you must hop over and see the Waltzingmouse (Claire Brennan) she has samples of her new Irish Heritage stamp sets being released next Tuesday - and they are just lovely!!
