All I want for Xmas is...............

Shoes and Handbags!!

Last week I purchased a new digi stamp from Pink Petticoat. It is their 'Diva Delights' image stamp and is a perfect Xmas image for all my girlfriends and sister-all who love shoes and handbags. Some of them like shoes, some handbags and some just can't decide-is it shoes or is it handabgs?? Luckily their are images to suit all their preferences.

This first image is for my girlfriends who love handbags-like Sharon who has a secret underbed drawer full of bags hidden from her husband!

Here I used a white blank card and embossed black card as the background (hard to see from the photo), then inked some more white card before some Xmas red card. I used a 'woodware' punch on the corners. I printed and coloured the image on white paper adding red ink to edges. And to finish a black ribbon and embellesment for sparkle.

The second is for those girlies who just love both bags and shoes:

This time I decided to change the colours around and used a black blank card as the base. I used bakers twine instead of ribbon and a 'making memories' pewter snowflake brad to hold the twine in place and add more of a Xmas feel and naturally a pearl for sparkle. I think this one will be for my sister.

I had used another image but just with shoes for those girlies who never have enough shoes.........

I have entered this into Crimbo Crackers fortnightly challenge.

I used in this card:

Bakers twine
making memories brads
Whispers archival ink-cherry red
Pink Petticoat diva images
Three Kings satin ribbon
