Shoe snippets

I borrowed a shoe stamp from a friend ages ago and made these shoes from snippets of paper. They sat in a box and I hadn't done anything with them. I am on a bit of a mission at the moment, to "use" things. So I also had some card blanks that I had forgotten about and the shoes teamed with the sentiment seemed to be perfect little cards. So I will be in the playground with three cards this week at Pixies Crafty Snippets challenge #34.

Absolutely fabulous - love the shoes and the sentiment is perfect.

But, I can see fights in the playground, one and a half pairs for the dressing up box?! You know what horrors they can be :)

Me first, me first. Love these shoes and I'm positive they won't fit anyone else in the playground.!. Hugs Mrs A.

Shoes are something us girls can never have too many of, any of these would fit into my wardrobe nicely.

Whether I could walk on them is a totally different matter, I've got far too many pairs like that already, but they are lovely to look at.

I'd love to totter around for a little while in any of those! Just gorgeous! Wouldn't they go well with those 50's dresses?

Fabulous. I love those shoes and what a great way of using up those snippets (I have boxes of the blooming things). Sue.x

Oh I'd loe to be able to walk in a pair like these! great idea to stamp them on the patterned papers...they look great. I have a sentiment along the lines of 'nothing can take your mind of life's problems like a pair of tight shoes...'

Hello....Great little card. Love the shoes. I remember being able to walk in shoes that high, now I'm lucky to walk in pumps.... Thanks for visiting my blog...good luck in the drawing. Still more time to enter....I hope whoever wins will love the treats in the bag. I almost don't want to share them.... but I will!

These are fabulous cards Lynn. Love the different shoe patterns, what a great way to use up paper scraps. Oh, and they surely would look nice in my home too, but I am another one that would not be able to walk in them.
