Witch Shoes DT Card

Hello, and welcome!

EDITED:  Can't believe Blogger did it again!  As you can see, this is supposed to go out on hubby to check the scheduling with me, and we had it right...we did!...but it still published early...aaaghhhh!!!
Hope you enjoy, anyway!

I have to say that I am sooooooo enjoying being on the Design Team for Stretch 'n' Bubbles.........Alison is a gifted artist, and I love having such a great choice of images to play with every week.

This particular one was a hoot to play with.........

Here in the UK, Halloween historically hasn't been a big deal, but the past few years have seen more people getting involved in dressing up, trick or treating, and decorating their homes.....whoohoo!!

And here I go again.....purple!!  It's certainly growing on me....ha!...and just seems right for all things Halloween.
The background paper is a free digi download, mounted onto white card, then onto a black card base........

Join the queue to order these boots in your size....only come in this very fetching colour combo, but ya could paint over 'em, if you really need!  Do you spy the sparkly Mod Podge? I was havin'  withdrawal symptoms, so out it came....and I really did have to dress those legs with some pink....couldn't help it..............mounted onto card that I had embossed with my Swiss Dots folder.......

This is a self-portrait....much cheaper than driving my car....and added a bit of fine glitter to glam up......

Recognize the ickle pumpkins?  A smaller version of the Pumpkin image that I used for my Autumn Garland, last week....cute, eh?

The green strip of card was put through my Big Shot in a Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder.  Seeing as I don't "do" purple, I really like how  this turned out......want to tell me what you think?  Be nice :D

Challenges: Make a scene

  2. Love, love , love this card!!! It's really outstanding! The glitter on the shoes tickles my fancy. :)

    See what a masterpiece can be made with purple? it's one of God's colors. I see it in every gorgeous sunset He blesses me with out my back window. lol

    Big hugs to you, sis!!!

  3. Oh wow this is just fabulous,love your

  4. Purple, orange and black -- traditional Halloween colours -- wouldn't be the same without them (and a hint of that green, too). No outfit is complete without the "right" shoes, and those are super fab. You've used them well!

  5. Purple is the new pink, did you not know that AM.
    Great card, love all the little additions to make it great.
    Mode of transport is also faster than the car but I can only guess!

  6. Like the card :o)
    You know what those shoes made me think of??!! Elf shoes - as in Santas helpers, someting red green and white but the word witch in your blog subject should had led my mind to Halloween instead. Am I the only one who have the wacky idea thinking of these as elf shoes???

  7. This is fabulous. The purple looks awesome and I love the little glow around the witch.
    Thanks for joining us at CES this week.
