A little gift........

Good morning all!  Hope you are doing well.  I'm a little late this morning, however, I do have a cute little project to share with you. 

This little shoe is made from a pattern I found at a blog that I visit often.  You can find the pattern here...http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/  Just look down the right hand side of her blog and you will see the tutorial.  Now this is my first try at this and it takes a little playing with (for me) to get everything to fit nicely.  She makes it look so easy.    I used some yellow card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with folder for the toe of the shoe.  I also used some Ranger Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade to add some depth to the pattern.  A little lace and a homemade flower and it is done.  It is the perfect place to tuck some of my favorite laces, ribbon,  and other things I love down into the toe.  Such a nice gift idea. 

Remember guys, this is a first effort so please be kind.  I will be trying this again and hoping it will have a more finished look.  To me, mine looks a little sloppy.  But never fear...I'll keep doing this until I get it right!
I'm thinking one of my friends will get this as a small gift from me.
