For Inspiration, Just Look Down


I bought my two year old these cute sandals the other day. I usually go for a closed toe type for little ones, but these were the best I could find. When we got home I helped her put these on. In looking more closely at the shoes I realized that the scallop, eyelet and stitching could be recreated with stamps. This is what I came up with last night. The faux eyelet and stitching is very light in the pictures - I used a light grey ink. I also, folded the notecard off-center, which causes a bit of a problem because of the existing center score line. But, I think I could do this again with some fanagaling.
I have been working on a few other things, but I haven't had time to load pictures lately. I am still here, though!

OMG! I bought the same sandals for my 2yr old daughter too! She always has to put them on herself and always puts them on the wrong feet. I tell her "there on the wrong feet" and she fixes them then. I love the card you made. It's always fun when you find something in particular that inspires you. ~PennyH
