Oh them shoes from Redonkulous- Crafty Catz DT Card

Good afternoon and a Good Good Friday to you all. Gosh i remember spending all day at Church when i was younger on Good Friday yes you read right. It was great we did lots of activities and a few services but really enjoyed ourselves. We took egg and cheese sandwiches because Mum said no meat and I didnt eat fish. Oh the good old days of St Clements Cof E. 
Well are you up to anything nice today. The sun is shining and after I have written this I am taking the dog and son for a nice long walk so guess I will be sleeping most of the evening. Well I have to make some room for my Easter Egg.
Friday brings another challenge at Crafty Catz and this week it is the lovely Diannes turn to pick the them and we all enjoyed popping by last weeks. So come on Sue what does Dianne what us to do this week.
so dig out those pearls and get those swirls down on that creation. Remember the theme is open as long as we can see the 2 elements on your projects and just the 1 entry please.
We have a fab sponosr for you this week and i couldnt wait to get my hands on my image that she so kindly allowed me to play with it is

the wonner will be given points to the store enabling them to pick between 2 - 4 images depending on what they want.
Ok now onto my card. I was so excited about this and when I coloured it in and started to assemble it I just wasnt sure  on my papers. Guess that will teach me not to get the papers 1st. Anyway what do you think. I went more British flag colours/ navy theme.

The very dark card is actually navy think this is a hard colour to get a picture of. 
Image coloured with promarkers, swirls from a friend, Red Pearls from meiflower, Dp is laura Ashley and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, card from papermill and lots of glitter on the shoes.
I think that this would make a fab card either a saucey one for a guy or a great birthday card for a girl that loves her shoes.
Ok so what do you think are you ready to come out to play with the Crafty Catz girls I do hope so.
Before I go please pop along and see what a fab job the rest of the team has done and also our Fab GDT Anna it is her last week with us and we are so sad to see her go but hope she will still come and play with us.
Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful easter hopefully surrounded by family.

Crafty Ribbons -anything goes with a ribbon
ThePaper shelter - anything goes
Through the Craft Room - anything goes
