If the shoe fits... it in every color!

I have a customer (male), who buys cards to send to his wife.  How dear is that?  He works away from home a lot, and I supposed this is his way of showing her he's thinking about her.  She loves shoes and purses, so I've made some shoe and purse cards.  I have the shoe stamps, but no purses, so I've made my own designs up.  Here are some of the designs I've made.  Think she'll like them?

He's been out of town, so I haven't gotten to show him these yet, but I think he'll be happy with them.  I've made about 12 cards so far, so this is just a sample.

Have a great weekend (and a Happy St. Patty's Day).

Rough dry skin

I thought I might share a little tip my chiropractor shared with me.

I have dry rough skin on my feet, especially my heels.  My chiropractor told me to get some of those rough gloves you use in the shower and scrub my feet with those to get rid of dead, dry skin.  Then every night I put Castor Oil on my feet and rub it in well. I then put cotton socks on.  I now have the softest skin I have ever had on my feet and heels.  This really works.  I know it sounds really yucky, but the results are worth it!

Do you have any tips or tricks to share with us?  Please leave them in the comment section.

Good afternoon.  I needed a quick pick-me-up card for my daughter, so I made her this butterfly card.  She's been going through some rough times and at work, and she really appreciated receiving it.

The background is patterned paper I picked up at Big Lots (I love their paper). I attached the butterfly so the wings are movable, and also added jewels for the body. The journey ticket actually matches the card better (I don't know what happened to the scan), and it was printed out on cardstock and then color added.  

A quick card that did what I wanted...lifted my daughter's spirits.

Do something crafty!  :-)
