Shelly's Images TTT Challenge

Happy Thursday Everyone!
Well ... today is hubby's LAST DAY of work!
His official RETIREMENT DATE is July1st ... but he had vacation to use so has the entire month of June off on vacation ... this guy really knows how to set himself up!  LOL!  It should be interesting to see how his 'retirement' conflicts with my crafting time ... something we might have to work on!  LOL!

Anyways ... it's time for another fun challenge at SHELLY'S IMAGES and today we have a really cool FEATURED IMAGE ... it's called "High Heel Shoes".  Be sure to pop over and check out the fabulous creations by the design team using this image.

Remember ... you can purchase this image TODAY ONLY at a reduced price!  So be sure to check that out at the store (click on the image name under the photo to go directly to it's location) ... and be sure to register at Shelly's new store ... you will find there are EXTRA PERKS for doing that!

Our CHALLENGE THEME for today is:

"U PICK 2"
Choose two from the following list to use on your project!

Ribbon ... Bling ... Color Blue ... Flowers ... 
Digi Image ... Markers ... Punched Borders ... Monochromatic

Okay ... here's what I came up with . . . and I've actually used more than TWO items from the list.  I've used ribbon, bling, digi image, markers (for coloring), a punched border and kept it monochromatic.  What can I say ... I was on a roll!!  LOL!!

WOW!  Now that's a pair of HIGH HEEL shoes!  I don't think I've EVER worn heels THAT high!!  I've used the sketch for the challenge over at Always Playing with Paper ... though I didn't actually follow the challenge which is to create a Christmas card.

Recipe for this card is:
Papers:  Paper Pizazz designer papers, white cs, black cs, lavendar cs
Accessories:  Prismacolor markers, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Stickles 'diamond', MS doily lace border punch, Michael's lilac satin ribbon, Liquid Pearls, Spellbinder classic oval dies, Signo pen for faux stitching, pop dots, SU Crystal Effects

Here is the inside of my card.  
At Shelly's store you will sometimes find suggestions for sentiments to go with the images, or suggested uses for the images.  This is the sentiment Shelly suggested for this image and it really caught my eye.  I've use the .png file (available with your purchase) of the high heel image to place behind my text.  I've done this in Word ... and since I used colored text I felt no need to color in the shoes.

I think this card will make a nice addition to my stash of 'Friendship' cards for the Fall Craft Show.  In fact, I just might have to make a few others similar to this one!

Well, that's it for me today!  I'm headed over to hubby's RETIREMENT LUNCHEON today at his office (he doesn't know I'm coming!).  What fun!

See you soon (I HOPE!)
