"Thank Shoe"

100_4776 by judkajudy




The challenge word at CASology this week is "shoe". I instantly thought of this unmounted red rubber stamp of a shoe image that I have owned for at least 10 years! And several years after I bought the shoe stamp, I came upon the little sentiment stamp "Thank Shoe". I don't think I have ever used these stamps until now!!

To keep things simple, I stamped the image on white card stock and then used my EK "bubbles" punch to add interest to the edge. I used photo corners to mount the white cardstock onto black. The image has a large bow included where I placed my black gingham ribbon bow.

I am glad to have finally put these two images together to make a card!! It's the first inkling of inspiration I have had since returning from my week in Minneapolis. Instead of creating, I have been cleaning out the craft room, looking for the metal dies that I have successfully stored where I can't find them!!

Hope your day is going well and you are looking forward to a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Great pun, so glad you were able to finally use your stamps! I love the gingham bow and the sharp black-and-white theme. I hope you were able to find your dies...I hate it when that happens!
