I have a shoe thing! I love them and there was a time in my life when I would not even leave the house unless my shoes complimented my outfit! Sick I know! All that changed last summer when I got plantar fasciitis and a heel spur in my left foot! A year of pain, and ORTHOTICS...ACK!!! really put a damper on my little obsession. Now when you see me I will likely be wearing sensible shoes, I still try to keep them fashionable but more importantly, sensible. I recall when I started stamping 6 or 7 years ago the hubs asked where I was getting the money to buy all these stamps...I said "haven't you noticed that I haven't bought any new shoes lately"...LOL! Now when I am not spending my disposable income on stamps, I buy purses!
So now, since I can't buy hot looking shoes for my feet, I buy them in rubber! These daisy hightops just called my name! And if it's a girl thing I always reach for pink, yellow and green...my hands down fav girly color combo. I stamped the image with memento ink on bellah paper, colored them in copics and finished off the shading and grass with pencils. The edges were sponged with a dauber (that I see Emily now is stocking!!! YAY!!!) and Versamagic Thatched Straw ink.
Get ready...copics used in this image:

On a final note, yesterday I made the trip to the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Festival in Novi, Michigan with my Chatham stamping buds Lynn and Pauline and even hooked up with some of my American stampin sistahs, Paula, Dana, Shannan and Mary. While I'm chatting with Mary she points out Kimmie Ried standing a few feet away. I don't know her but I sheepishly walk over and say Hi Kimmie Ried, I'm Lindabella!!!! LOL!!!! We jumped, squealed and hugged like we had known each other FOREVER! Too fun!
ETA: Kimmie, I've been thinking and 'cause I'm central to you and Paula the next girly girl get together we have at my place I love for you and Andrea to join us in Chatham....think about and we'll keep in touch! It's all about stamping...and maybe pizza!
I've got a nice quiet day planned which hopefully will include some coloring!
