Shoe House

     Good Morning!  It's time for another new challenge at QKR Stampede and for those of you who love doing Clean and Simple designs, this is the challenge for you.  Our theme is CAS; just that simple.  :-D  My card uses a wonderful digi image and a sentiment from QKR:  16201 "Shoe House" and 17308 "All the Years."

     This card will be used for a family who has just purchased their first home.  New year, new home - how exciting is that?  I thought the image was simply adorable.  I can hardly believe that in all the months I've been on the DT for QKR, to say nothing of the couple of years I'd been using their stamps before joining the DT, I had somehow not seen this image!   Oh, well, that makes it new to me for this new 2016 year.

     I printed the image directly onto my card front, then colored with ProMarkers.  I dug out some ribbon from my stash, printed and cut the sentiment, inked the edges of both the sentiment and the card, and found some of my newest twine to make a triple bow.  Very CAS and perfect for showcasing that cute shoe house.
