A Couple of Cards

It's hard to believe that we are halfway through July! Where is this summer going? I have to say, the weather has been awesome. No humidity, days that have been around 80degrees and comfortable evenings. We haven't had to turn the air conditioner on at all, which I'm thrilled about! How has the weather been near you?

Well, here is a card for this week's CPS sketch. As you know I love Papertrey Ink. Everything on here is PTI, the ribbon, ink, stamps and buttons. The butterfly was cut with my Cricut. I love Lemon Tart and Sweet Hibiscus together.

And this is another one that I did recently. I love the colors on here. I used the Cosmo Cricket paper as my inspiration. I sprayed the Tattered Angels chipboard with Sunflower Glimmer Mist and the crystals and pearls are Zva. The stamps are, of course, Papertrey!

I'm gearing up for my trip to CHA. So, here's my question for you. I need some cute, yet comfy shoes to wear. I want something that looks stylish, yet will cradle my tootsies. ;) If you know of any, link me up!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Anabelle, I hope to see you at CHA. Are you working in a booth? I'm just going to be floating around (i'll be the one drooling LOL) I hope to meet up with you. IF you want incredibly comfy shoes then I would suggest BORN brand. They are pretty much the only shoes I wear (besides flipflops). you can find them here: http://pipedreams62.com/
Super cute cards... I especially love the one with the oranges and greys. Beautiful... you can do no less! Smiles - Amy Tara

Love the cards and your stamping. ;) Wish I was meeting up with ya at CHA!

Hope to see you there!

I suggest Fit Flops (at Victoria's Secret or Macy's). They have a super comfy sole/support and are a bit stylish too, but perfect to keep on outside as well.

Oh, another CHA goer! I am jealous! As for shoes, I usually wear Birkenstocks sandals and they are ohh so comfy for me, but the toes gotta be out... can't stand having my toes enclosed, lol. But I tell ya, you can walk forever in Birkies.

Your cards are beautiful... love the second one esp.with the chipboard and glimmer mist!

oh how the pink and yellow combine so nicely on that first card! Love the bling on the second!
As for shoes I bought a pair of SBICCA's that I wore while working a booth at GASC in Chantilly for two days straight. Never had any aches and I was on my feet all day. Have fun at CHA and good luck shoe shopping!

Have fun at CHA! (like that even needs to be said)
