I really miss shoe and your purse-onality

Hi everyone,
Boy was I glad to see Kathy posting!  Keeping a schedule is rather hard work...though very fun.  I have felt my creativity is slowly coming back after pretty much a year long hiatus.  All I want to do is stamp stamp stamp, although work does call if I want to continue stamping.  One of the nice things I've discovered is as Kathy has told me would happen--I'm starting to lose the fear of using up my paper (remember, I'm a paper hoarder).  So much so that I may need a trip to the craft stores to purchase more card stock as my stash of some colors is starting to dwindle...

I am leaving for NY on Thursday so I won't be back to post for a week.  Today, I am going to ship off the cards I made for Julia and Claudia but I thought I'd upload both of them at the same time as I do have a couple of others I need to make before I go.

So back to the important things...as you remember, usually I send them cards with a similar theme each week so no one gets upset that one got a "better" card than the other.  This week's theme is fashion.  SO Julia will be getting the purse and Claudia will be getting the shoe.  Claudia's greatest wish is to have 365 pairs of shoes...one for every day of the year.  I'm hoping to start her on her collection with cards.  LOL  (well she never specified REAL shoes...)

I will be entering these cards into the Hooked on Craft Challenge: All that glitters  and Just Keep on Creating Challenge #2, Anything Goes.   I attached the closeups so you can get a feel for all the glitter!
Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!  Margaret
