New Shoes!?

Hello my crafty buddies. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. Ours was quiet but lovely...the men in my life and me plus assorted animals of course!!
All over now for another year and soon " Christmas Tree Corner" will be empty once more (sobs!!).

I have a card to share with you today that was inspired by the current






Such pretty colours don't you think? This is what I did



I used Alyssa Shopping and coloured her with Promarkers to match the gorgeous Nitwits Always and Forever paper. The ribbon and fabric butterfly came from my stash and the sentiment was computer generated. I thought it made a nice change from Happy New Year...go on admit it you've all had a browse at the sales whether in person (if you're mad) or from the comfort of your sofa (if slightly less so!!). I had my eyes on a pair of M&S boots...sadly they are not in the Sale...hey ho, I'm clearly not meant to have them !!

I am taking this card along to these challenges too

Creative Fingers #17 -  Anything Goes
CRAFT #239 - New Year/Baby/Beginnings...Shoes?
Passion for Promarkers # 228 - Include a sentiment

Well, that's me for now but could I just be cheeky and remind you that we are half way through our current Challenge at Oldie But A Goodie and as I blog this we only have three entries....:0( and I chose the theme and have donated the prize so pleeeeease dig out your tartan or check, paper ribbon...anything that's over six months old and play along!!

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for sharing it with little old me!! xx

Hi Sarah, glad you had a good Christmas! I adore your card. The colours are so beautiful! If I have time, I shall have a play too :-)

I'm decidedly unfeminine, in that shoe/clothes/make-up shopping are all yuck to me. I'll buy shoes and clothes when I *need* them, otherwise, I'll pass! Aside from crafty shops, I'm most likely to be found in a DVD shop, bookshop or in Forbidden Planet! x
