Boots!

To create the wreath, I used a tip I saw on the Wplus9 blog, you can find it HERE. Basically, it says to create a perfect shape, use dies as a template. I used my circle die to trace out the circle and then stamped the wreath around that shape. The bow is a silhouette file.

Love this pic of our local pumpkin patch. Love Fall. Love clothing layers and jeans and boots, comfy cardigans, hot tea, the jewel toned colors...all of it. I need some new boots. Geez, they are expensive!! I have had the same pair of good Coleman boots since I was 24 and I love them, but sure have my eyes on these:

or this one, because at 5'2", I need all the help I can get!

Still deciding on the perfect boot...




Supplies:
Die: Bow Silhouette #16778 , Spellbinders circle

  6. Great card, Wida! Thanks for the tip on stamping a wreath!
    And those first boots are very cool! I scored a nice pair of dress boots at the Mall of America last weekend at LEN.... they were $90, but I got 50% off and no tax! :)

    Let's talk boots. You need a couple of pairs I think! ;D I like to have a flat pair of knee highs and a pair of ankle boots worth a wedged heel. Ooh and I love my wedged heel knee highs too.;D
