Its that "Sneaker Again"

Hello Blog friends, followers and poppers by.  Hope you are all well, if not, I send a few ((((hugs)))) to help.  Oh! My! Word! where are the weeks going???  We have had no summer and now we are marching rather swiftly into Autumn.  The evenings are drawing in and the early mornings are so dark!!!
Nothing much happening here at the Ranch at the moment.  Our neighbouring  farmers are "very" busy bringing in the grain.  The field of Potatoes out the back is almost ready for lifting.  I do hope they wait till I get back.  Once the Potatoes are lifted my friend Isobel and I go in along the edges of the field and pick up Potatoes they have not lifted with the machine.  That keeps us going for weeks.    I have been getting ready for my trip away with Hazel.  Every year we say we are going to "cut back" on the things we bring with us.  I have definitely done that but there still seems just as much as last time!!!
Today I am showing you those Sneakers again  ...  sorry!!!  These are based my "Converse" sneakers, I will be wearing them for my holiday traveling.  This will be the last you see of these for a while, bet your all glad about that.  
Just another idea for you:-

I stamped the image onto floral paper and cut out the sides of the sneakers.  
I stamped the image on white card and coloured it in.  I then decoupaged the floral bits on.  Used the graffiti stamps on the background, mounted the whole lot onto an easel card.  I used the same paper to decorate the easel that I used for the Sneakers!!!
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that you take time to call by
Till next time

  13. Gorgeous card, really lovely. I've never managed the art of packing lightly, I always take far too much & come back with clothes I haven't worn!


  14. Goodness I love your converse! I love your card too Deciding to choose what to take away is sooo hard I always take too much just in case! And bring half of it back with all good intentions of making a list to leave in the suitcase as to what was used, useful and what I forgot - never happens though I still pack too much

  15. A gorgeous card Patricia, love the stamp with the pretty paper piecing.
    Have a lovely weekend
