ColourQ 138

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Aren't these shoes cool?  They remind me of a pair of green and white gingham platform shoes my mom used to let me play with when I was a kid!  So much fun! 

To create this card I used almost all of the sentiments in the Simply You stamp set and curved them onto the acrylic block.  It took a little maneuvering, but I finally got them the way I wanted them.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments and suggestions about my neck. 
 It still hurts, but I finally feel like it is getting better.  I did buy a new pillow!
Time will tell if that helps prevent this happening again. 
 I hope you have a great week and can find some time to join us this week at the ColourQ!!
