New Shoes

If you jumped onto this blog for the Card Makin Mama's blog hop, click the picture directly below to jump to the blog hop post.

Those of you that know me personally will get a laugh from my post title....I hardly even wear shoes, its not odd to see me barefoot and i've even been known to go away on holidays and get to our destination minus shoes on my feet or even packed.   So why on earth mention shoes you ask.
Well its because I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that Im a new shoe at If the Shoe Fits Scrap It...  perhaps they will inspire me to put some shoes on, or perhaps I will be in the craft room barefoot, relaxed and colouring!

Im coming in a little late for the current challenge at If the Shoe fits
we want to see how you are inspired by HALLOWEEN and/or FALL.
This is a little hard for me, as its definitely not Fall (Autumn) over here in Australia and we don't really celebrate Halloween.. so what did I come up with.

Well I chose an image that actually reminded me of Easter, which does fall in our Autumn months but i don't really give people easter cards that much.  So I went with Autumn colours, an image that certainly could be considered Halloween inspired (if you were to dress up that is) and ended up with a birthday card.

I really love how this turned out, the dragon is from Stampin Dragon and I coloured her (yes her) with Copics, Im pleased with the finished product.

Please drop by the challenge blog so we can see how you are inspired by Halloween or Fall.

  1. Hi Penny

    What a beautiful creation !! Well done !. I am loving your cute little dragon and the colors you chose go very well together.

    P.S. I do not wear my shoes that much either. My husband does not like it, mainly when I have no socks on and walk about in a dirt and then spread it all over the carpet. LOL

    Happy Crafting!

  4. Hi Penny

    I think you have done a fabulous job with this card. The colours are suitable for Halloween and the dragon could well be a costume, so it fits the bill perfectly!!

    Great colouring and I love the banner.
