high. I take my heels off to Shoe Girl for suggesting using print of book pages in the Ways to Use it this week. In honor of her love of shoes, I thought I'd go Italian (they do know how to fashion a high heel!). The large panel was stamped with an Italian letter print in the 'Watering Can' gray as well as the vertical narrow panel, which is a scripty diamond repeat. Hard to believe I had a shoe image I did NOT stamp for this card.
The shoes were all inked and stamped in different colors and patterns. The beautiful Fuchsia pump was overstamped on a scrap of moire stain. The umbrella pump was stamped on a snippet of Basic Grey patterned paper which has clouds and rain. The yellow is perfect for an afternoon out shopping for more shoes, right??? The sensible Oxford gillie in brown and the wingtip patent blue and white so practical for us working gals.
But my fav...of course the red high heel with the band around the ankle, bow in back.
I used the Sketch SC585 as the bones of my card, thank you Ally. I am enjoyed these very linear layouts.
Please leave a shoe story if you care to comment. I recall 'testing' my soon to be husband by saying:
'I have 90 pairs of shoes, how do you feel about a shoe luv'ing girl?' Of course, he passed the test. Sadly, my feet now protest if I try to squeeze them into the latest Italian model...

Not one single card you ever made was not fun! Your narratives are always well written and the card, designed so beautifully with so much imagination! Love the different papers you used for the colorful and wonderful shoes!
I could never wear heels, not ever. Many years ago while working had to go to a forma dinner with salespeople. I wore heels- being very brave. When I walked in, a male office buddy and co-worker said to me " Hey Stiz, is that the first time you wore heels." I KNEW I should not have worn them since the wobbly ankles just would not take them.

I will have a pair of the red shoes, please, Susan, size 5 Aus, I think the same as the UK? sizing! Seriously, love the sketch used to show off all these beauties and the script bg looks terrific! Don't own that many pairs shoes - maybe 20 pairs - but if I see a shoe in my size - not easy - I tend to buy them, providing I like them!

Oh wow, what a fabulous card and story. My favourite uploads are the ones that get everyone chatting, I loved all the shoe stories. Sadly I now wear flat shoes and walk like a Russian wharfie, due to spending way too many years in very high heels LOL. Great card mf.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
