No Shoes

I know that a lot of gals just can't have enough shoes.   When I worked, I was in that group.  Now that my work is at home, I don't wear shoes unless I have to.  And the shoe stamps are as sparse on my stamping shelves as they are in my closet!  So when I saw the CAS-ology challenge this week, my heart sank.

But, I do have a couple of boots.  I hope that's close enough.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch from Jennifer T. turned upside down.  I love the simplicity of this sketch.

The Technique Challenge at SCS was to make your own polka dots.  
I didn't exactly make them, but Joan said that we could use a stamp with polka dots.

And this boot has some polka dots.

I also made some dots with the Paper Piercer.  Does that count?

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps:  Happy You (Hostess set)

Oh, and the lovely ladies at The Friday Mashup  named my Happy Autumn card as a Glamette from last week.  
Thanks ladies!

I don't know about you, but I'm really glad it's Friday.  I hope you enjoy the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.  I love it when  you say hello.

So sweet, Bonnie! I'm sure it is more than acceptable for the challenge. I'm hoping to find something myself to post tomorrow; this was a tough one, but you've created a winner!!

Great Christmas card, Bonnie! Love the little boot! I didn't have much to work with in my stamps either but I finally got something done. I think I like your "shoe" better!

Your polka dot boots full of flowers are so cute. I used a boot for this challenge, too...cowgirl boot.

Bonnie, this is adorable! I am one of those that can't have enough flip flops! I hate shoes, but love to slide my feet inside some flip flops! All colors to coordinate! It was perfect when I lived in Hawaii because that is all you wore and no shoes in the house. Now that I live in Virginia....poo on part of the year...So I am with ya! I try and find comfy boots! I really love your take on the sketch! Colors too!
