Did you lose a shoe?

Is this not the neatest thing you've seen today!? It came out so cool, and so easy to do! I found the directions to make this shoe at Artful Affirmations She says that there are many other shoe directions out in blog land, but I didn't bother looking anywhere else since I fell in love with hers.

I created the shoe using a piece of 12 x 12 paper that I had bought in a stack at Ross ( love that store!) I edged the shoe using SU grosgrain ribbon then added some sparkly bling. The Petaloos flower is topped with a pink flower then a pretty brad. Yummy!!

A little over the top

Here is my creation..

It's a bit over the top, but it sure was fun making it. I used my own judgment following the card sketch. It's close, right? The color challenge wasn't too hard since I started out with designer paper that had all the colors. Then the last challenge was to use buttons, which I have no trouble doing that.

I've been wanting to use these flowers. I got them at JoAnn's and are so similar to the beautiful flowers that Webster's pages sell. Probably much cheaper, too.

Here's the inside..such a nice sentiment.

$1 Bird House

Here's one of those $1.00 bird houses you can find at JoAnn's turned into something gorgeous!
The papers are all Stampin' Up! the rest you can find at JoAnn's. Those cute little birdies were cut using the Cricut.

I'll admit, this took me a bit longer than I would have liked. I had some health issues and ended up in the hospital for four days. ugggg. Plus my thumb, that I had surgery on last year, has not been very co-operative. Looks like another surgery in the making. another uggg. Although, I would definitely exchange a surgery for staying in the hospital. I hated staying there.

Enough of that...Isn't this the cutest!!! I have another bird house to alter, but I'm playing with my Cricut a bit more. I'm trying to do some paper piecing with the Happily Ever After cartridge. It's not as easy as it looks!
