Fab Friends and "Fab"ric Shoes

Howdy friends!  Its gorgeous here today and luckily I will get to spend time outside watching my son play rugby today.  Wanted to share 2 things with you today - so I'll try to make it short and sweet :)

First up - Fab Friend cards!  PTI's Make It Monday Challenge this week is about Layering.  I first made a basic one layer card, then I stepped it up and made a multi-layer card using the same basic layout.  Very cute idea - it was fun to take it to the next level.

Next up - "Fab"ric Shoes!  I'm super excited about these - I've recently seen on Pinterest using fabric to update your shoes.  I've had these shoes for about 2 years and they've been in my to donate pile for about 6 months.  Just didn't love them anymore - that is until I learned you could Mod Podge fabric on them and give them a new life!!!!!  As you can see, I've only done one shoe so I could show you the before and after.  Its super quick and didn't cost me a dime since I had the fabric, shoes, and Mod Podge already - SCORE!  I'm also planning on making some cute shoe clip flowers to go with them - making several colors to go with whatever outfit I'm wearing that day!  Check these babies out:

EEK!  Now this next picture might scare you a bit - I know, I need a bit of sunshine on these legs of mine... :0)

Anywho - I'm off to rugby soon.  Have a blessed day!

Another Birthday Card

Howdy friends!  Its been awhile since I've done anything in my studio - and shared anything.  I've been busy doing stuff - just haven't made the time to get it up here!  So - Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge this week is to use leaf die cuts to make a flower.  I pondered this one a bit since I don't have many dies - much less leaf ones.  Funny enough, when I perused the dies, I came across the Delighful Dahlias dies!  Lo and behold, it had leaf dies!  2 sizes!  So I cut them out in 2 sizes and 2 colors then got busy creating a flower.
