Posh Shoes!!

Hello All,
 
I had forgotten that I had started this post
and was going to shock you, by posting straight after my last one!! 
I know that I am a very naughty blogger as far as posting
but I am trying this year to be better!
 
My next goal is to try and join in with more challenges.
I just never seem to have the time and then when I have done one, I forget.
I did that once and I missed getting the prize I had won!Doh!!
Note to myself.... I must try harder!
 
I bought these stamps from House of Zandra,
at Sandown Park Fair in February.
She was selling the set, which has 2 shoes and embellies in the set for £5!
So I bought 3 sets of shoes and bags. 
 
 
I coloured the shoe with Distress Inks and added a touch of Stickles.
I was playing with the inks and trying to get a suede effect.
Not sure it worked though!
 
 
The die I bought at Ally Pally, which is a Nesties Labels 40.
.................................................................................. 
I just had to put a couple of photos of a couple of plants in my garden.
I love Spring and my Pieris is such a show off plant.
The fence behind it is 7' high!
 
 
This Ceonothus is next to it and opens a couple of weeks after the Pieris.
They are right by the conservatory, so perfect placing for viewing.

 
I do have another shoe card made, as it was a commission,
I will show it after her birthday.
 
Thanks for popping in and please leave me a message,
 so I know you have been.
Then I will pop over to your blog.
 
I will be back with another Winter Wonderland challenge post on Friday.
So would love it, if you can join our challenge that is still open.
You have one day left to join in and have a chance to win.
 
Hugs,
Carolxxxx

What gorgeous photographs Carol, such a spectacular Pieris!! Our ceanothus is nowhere near ready to burst yet but when it does I just love the smell of it. Love your card, such a gorgeous colour palette, it would be perfect for all the Anything Goes challenges that are about at the moment. I actually have the shoe CD...somewhere, must dig it out!! xx
