Flower Boot

     I'm a huge fan of Bugaboo Stamps and I can't even tell you how many I have in my collection but it has to be in the high hundreds.  This is one I've never used before making this card but it seems so clearly an image for spring.  Despite being sick, I'm so glad it's spring!  I know my allergies will kick in soon but I'm not going to let even that get me down.


    I colored with my ProMarkers, then cut the image with a die from Cheery Lynn.  The background "Chicken Wire" die is also by Cheery Lynn.  Both of the papers came from SU and the bow is one of the bowties I learned to make as few months ago.

     This week is flying by, or maybe it's just that I'm lacking sleep and have no real sense of time.  I know I've only been able to sleep in 2 or 3 hours blocks and then wake up because my head is so congested, I can't breathe.   I'll be glad when the cold progresses into the chest and I can breathe through my nose again.  :-D   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

That image is really adorable indeed! I love how you've made the boot look dimensional and that bow at the top adds a wonderful element to it! I do hope you feel better soon my friend! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*
