Shoe Diva!!

Happy Saturday everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I had to take a "holiday" to get all my other "stuff" done (errands and chores, yum)! I had to catch up on laundry and cleaning and run around trying to find a Halloween costume for my daughter. AHHHHHHHh--they do not make costumes for "young" teen girls that are appropriate anywhere, frustrating. We finally found her a cute woodland fairy costume that was appropriate and we "both" agreed on for her 7th/8th grade Halloween dance last night. And of course I had to chaperone which my daughter just loves (NOT) and it gave me a migraine--too loud (I'm gettin' old I guess, lol) !! Hey, I'm an involved parent and like to know what's going on ya know--this age is very scary!! The picture below is of her dressed for the dance--I had to do her makeup and hair of course because she says she can't, lol!

Ok, onto my news of the day. First and foremost Susana of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design asked me to be her designer to help get her business off and running and I was happy to accept her offer. I like that she carries a smaller line of stamps and is an artist herself so its a great match. She has some fabby things in her shop that you should go check out. She carries Rubber Romance and Karen Lockhart stamps too along with her own line of stamps and some other fun goodies too. Please go visit her shop and show her some love!! I'll share my other "news" with ya tomorrow--I don't want to overwhelm you with too much news, lol!!

My two cards today use stamps from Susana's own line of stamps. I lovee shoes (I have alot, I won't share how many cuz' I might be embarrassed or you might be shocked,lol)! Shoes and purses and stamps are my obssessions you could say, lol!! This first card uses a Rubber Romance stamp (it's really a picture of me, ha ha) named "Vivian" and some of Susana's shoe stamps. I used the Color Challenge #188 from SCS this week to use pink/black/white--which was easy cuz' I lovee those colors together. The dp is from DCWV "All Dressed Up" stack. The image was colored w/ Copics and I also used black stickles on her dress and some of the shoes. I also used silver liquid pearls to paint the red shoe accents and the bow on her hat--I like the shine and dimension of these liquid pearls alot. I fancied up the inside too--I don't always show the inside of my cards but today I felt like switchin' it up for ya :) The sentiments on the front and inside are from Amy R's "boutique sentiments" over at All That Scraps--fabulous sentiments in this set, for the shopper in all of us!!
Second card uses just Susana's stamps--I love how you can dress up the shoes anyway you want (stamp 'em, color 'em, glitter 'em up)! I wanted the one pair to match my leopard print dp by DCWV(have I told you I{heart} animal prints) so I colored them to match. I think this "shoe-da" sentiment is too cute---there's lots of thing's I shoe'd do, but don't--ROFL!! I know just who to send this fabby card to :)

That's it for me today. Hope you liked my cards and you're off to having a great weekend. I'm working today on projects and then tomorrow we finally get to go the Pumpkin Patch as a family. The weather is supposed to be in the 60's so it should be really nice, I can't wait. See ya back here tomorrow w/ some Xmas projects.

    Congrats on yur good news and I love the cards you have made. Shall wait eagerly to find out the other news.

  2. Your daughter is darling...and I know what you mean about the loud music...I can't believe I enjoyed it myself when I was young. Love your shoe cards...too cute, and I'm of course reminded of all the pairs I have that like so many of my stamps rarely see the light of day LOL!

  3. I forgot to say congrats to you and best wished to Susanna on her new business!

  7. Such cute SHOE cards and I'm onboard with your addiction-- I had shelves built to hold all of them in my closet and I've outgrown that! Shoes and stamps-- I must have an addictive personality! :) Adorable outfit on your daughter-- you're brave going to the dance! I think I'd rather not know! lol... Tori

  8. what a beautiful daughter you have. and a fabulous card you made. I'm not so much into shoes, but had it been bags, now that would be a different story! hugs, annie x

  9. Great cards and love your dd's costume. I have an 11 year old and found the same as you that they don't make appropriate costumes for that age group. We finally settled on a Devil Grrrl costume which I am still not 100% happy with but it was way better than the other choices.

  10. What a cute outfit and your daughter is darling! Such a cutie! Love the cards and congrats on the new DT! I'll be shopping there. Love those companies! And the cards are to die for! I love the wild paper! Can't wait to hear what your other news is!

  11. Your daughter is beautiful!

    Great cards! Gotta love shoes (and purses and stamps) I think we are 2 of a kind!

    Congrats on being another designer! Looks like a fun person to work for!

    Can't wait to hear your other exciting news!
    Hugs~ Kim
