Take Two on the Witch's Boot!

I couldn't resist making another witch's boot.
  This time I wanted to add her leg and striped stockings. 
And then one thing led to another and I ended up adding multiple roses, glittery leaves, and a spattering of sequins. 
Sometimes these projects take on a life of their own! ;)
The flowers were cut using my Silhouette and the leaves are by Prima. I used Halloween papers from the Paperloft.
The box still holds Halloween treats like candy corn.
Unfortunately, the candy corn didn't survive the last photo shoot from the other boot. 
Someone ate it all....   ;) 
It's the weekend!
I have no real big plans.
Crafting, grocery shopping, hanging out with the family....
Quiet is good.  I need a bit of quiet. :)

Check back if you get a chance this weekend.
 I will be hosting a giveaway and you won't want to miss it!

My card today is a complete 360 from my witch's boot on Monday! 
I have a variety of Heidi Swapp stencils and have been having a bit of fun playing and experimenting with them. For this card I placed the stencil on cream card stock and taped it in place with low tack artist's tape.  I grabbed a variety of inks from Papertrey and just "stamped" the ink in the various colors. The magic happens when you take the stencil off and are left with this pretty background!
And because I am the type of gal who can't leave well enough alone, I added glossy accents to all of the colored areas. It gives the colors a bit more pop and a bit of dimension as well. 
I added a glittery flower that was cut using my Silhouette and a sentiment from JustRite's Vintage Banners set. I added several sequins for a finishing touch. 
As many of you know, Cortney had a modeling shoot on Sunday.  The photographer took many, many photos, but afterwards I couldn't help taking a few of my own. 
This gal loves the camera!
I just need a company, Etsy shop.......someone to give her a chance to model for them.
I think this dream may be unattainable....unrealistic.....but for now, it is one I am trying to pursue.  
Thank you kindly for your e-mails and kind words.  It truly, truly means the world to me.
I love that this hobby has created this thoughtful and kind group of people who care and support one another.
I am truly blessed by all of you!

Witch's Boot....

I have today off. I thought I'd get to relax.
I was wrong.
Too many errands and things that needed to be done because they had been neglected for far too long. 
But at least I feel like I am a bit more caught up now. 
Not in my "crafty" life, but in my "regular" life. ;)
With Halloween around the corner, I couldn't resist this adorable witch's boot from Silhouette.
It's a box and holds treats.  I added lace and this cute witchy image from Crafty Secrets Halloween Digital Labels. I gave her a bit of color using my Copic markers. 
I laced up the front of the boot with silk ribbon. 
I filled it with treats. Of course it was a bit fuller, but as I was taking the picture I kept sneaking a few..... :)
I can't resist candy corn.  
A few months ago I decided to do something I had always wanted to do. 
Get gel nails. Mine never grew. 
I had tried every product known to man and nothing worked. 
I envied women with I decided to do this for myself. 
I love them.
I love that my hands always look pretty.
I love experimenting with all the cool polishes out there.
I found this purple by Deborah Lippmann. 
Off to get some beds washed and pick up my newly groomed's time for their Halloween pics!
