redbrick: adjective

built of red brick
  of, relating to, or being the British universities founded in the 19th or early 20th century
( Currently it's raining and I sure could use some galoshes/wellies to get out and about today. I thought I'd carry the theme of showers even farther along by using a Rainy Day sentiment. )
Card Makin' Mamas - No Pattern Paper
( second entry )
Inkspirational - Challenge #14 Color Inkspiration -  pink, banana, and slate
( Was not sure if slate was grey or blue, but it seems the DT projects used blue, at least that's what if looked like on my computer screen. I didn't have a slate blue ink so I used Broken China. )
Technique Time Tuesday - Water Stamping
( OK, so my stamping techniques really stink, hence why I try to learn new things. This one really bombed for me, lol Here is a picture of the rain boot after stamping with my Hero Arts background stamp following the steps...I just need to practice more. But I HAD to try it, I mean water stamping and a Rainy Day card just went hand in hand. )
Since you could not make out the flowers from the stamps; I glued some on where they were suppose to be and added a pink rhinestone to the center of each.
I altered the Prima rose by removing the rose core and added a matching rhinestone to it.
Cricut - Paisley cartridge, p. 49 ( taken to the CCR to stretch the boot to fit the envelope )
Prima - large flower, leaf
My Mind's Eye - rhinestones
Faber Castell - PITT pen
Sharpie - ( 'cause I wasn't going to waste my PITT pen coloring in the sole of the boot!! )
Ranger - Distress Ink
Hero Arts - stamp
Helmar - Gemstone Adhesive
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Happy Birthday
Cricut - Doodlecharms, p. 109
Really Reasonable Ribbon
CARDZTV - stamp
Faber Castell - PITT pen
Y&C Calligraphy marker

I'm the world's worst stamper. That why I usually try to avoid stamps. They and I simply don't go hand in hand. But you did a fantastic recovery with that boot.

Hello Sandee, I just love your cards! That little boot is just darling!
Just wanted you to know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! We got moved, now the task of getting everything in it's place and organized. It will still be a while before I can participate in the challenges, my craft room is not set up yet (it's driving me crazy). LOTS of aches and pains!
