"Back in my Comfort Zone"

Hello Blog friends, glad to have you call in today.  Thank you for taking time to comment on my work, I love reading all your lovely comments, that`s what makes it all worth while.
John and I popped up to Blairgowrie this morning approx 8 miles north of us.  Oh! Man! there is still loads of snow there, and it is such a sort distance away.  A few weeks ago we could not get to Blairgowrie the road was................ flooded!!!   Glad we went today, that road could easily be flooded again tomorrow the fields are very flooded and it is now bucketing rain plus the melting snow.
Meeting Hazel tomorrow, missed last week because of the snow.  We have a lot of chat to catch up  on even though we do chat every day on the phone.
As you can see today`s card is back in my Comfort Zone.  I am not really a stamper or one who really enjoys colouring in.  I like colouring in but not for my cards.

I found the Die Cut shoe and sentiment when I was having my clean out.

Base card approx 5 x 7
Pink Co-ordinations card stock
White card embossed with the Tied Together Embossing Folder
Cosmic Shimmer Pearl for the pearl effect on the links of the folder
I used the Die Cuts I had found
Added a little bow and a pearl buckle on the shoe just to finish it off

That`s it  for today
Thank you for calling by I really do appreciate it

Patricia  xx
