I was so un-inspired yesterday when I sat down to stamp. I kept on debating between different stamps, challenges, and cards that I finally asked DH to pick out a stamp at random from my stamp index for me to work with. Of course, I didn't use what he suggested, but it got my mind going and soon I was rockin' and rollin' on my way to making this card:
I was inspired by this week's CASE study challenge, which was this beautiful card by Barbara Anders. I was also inspired by a recent shoe purchase. It was a sad, sad day last year when I finally realized I can't wear heels every day to school and still be able to, you know, "walk." So I'm trying my best to find the cutest almost-flat-but-not-totally shoes (wedges are also acceptable, especially if it's a test day). I found a pair of Naturalizer shoes that I liked so much I bought them in brown and black. They're still not perfect, but at least I can stand up all day in them, and they look reasonably fashionable. (My other current favorite is a pair of black ballet flats from Life Stride called "Meg!") Anyway, I've been keeping the box for both card storage and because I thought the color scheme would make a great card. Here is a comparision shot:
As some of you may know, I am addicted to Picnik. They just added their halloween effects, so I'll end this post with someone who is actually too cute to spook, but is at least a little scary with the "ghostify" effect, right?
