still bare footed...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and happy and having a brilliant week...I'm still bare footed and no sign of shoes for the wedding and decided not to drag my poor Dad to Town shoe shopping I will drag Phil round on Saturday instead (poor man) lol, its hard to decide between comfort and looking great isn't it, now is it to much to ask that we woman can have a good pair of high heeled court shoes that fit like a glove and will be comfortable all day long...don't be daft Mina of course it is lol... but at least I did finish the wedding menus at long last I'm sure shes fed up waiting for them, the wedding has come around so fast, we will be flying out a week on Friday...I must admit the meal does sound scrummy just my type of meal, I will show you the menu after the wedding just in case my Niece wouldn't like me showing it before, we don't wanna upset a bride to be do we...I'm seriously struggling with my mojo and getting back in the swing of things since I got back...I don't know why but I hope it hurrys back as I have looked in all the usual places like under the bed with the fluff bunnies and in the bottom of my handbag but nothing yet...anyway my card for today is using one of the new Christmas digis from Sugar Nellie, this little sweetie is called Squirrel Delivery Service, wouldn't that be wonderful if squirrels delivered your Christmas gifts, there would be a lot of smiley faces waiting for the post wouldn't there lol...I coloured it with my usual distress inks and used another scrap of paper for my card, I'm loving using up all the scraps I found while we were moving...this one is from Bo Bunny and is called St Nick Noel, gorgeous isn't it...I finished my card with a gingham bow, red button and a stamped sentiment from the new Crafty Impressions Warm Winter wishes stamp set from Funky Kits I love these new sets of sentiment stamps, they are a brilliant finishing touch for any card...the fab sketch is from Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering it for the Created with Love challenge and the Use It Tuesday challenge too...Its supermarket day with my Dad today, and you all know how I love the supermarket don't you lol...whatever your up to today I hope you have fun and if you see my mojo send it home please its sorely needed

There's a saying: "Fast, good, or cheap. Choose any two." Maybe for shoes it is more like "Pretty, comfy, or cheap, choose any two". I'm sure if you had a mint to spend you could have shoes that are both pretty and comfy. Alas, most of us do not!

I wouldn't be complaining about my mojo if I had a sweet image like this, coloured it so perfectly and paired it up with these lovely papers. In other words, I just love your card Mina.
Good luck on finding back your mojo and the right pair of shoes of course. I hate buying new shoes. When you do see a pretty pair, they are usually not comfortable or the size is just not right. And even buying more expensive shoes is not always a guarantee for longlasting comfort, as I have found out myself.
