Delight in your digi!

The challenge on Fab 'n' Funky this week is "delight in your digi!" which means you have to use a digi on your work. These shoes are the latest lovely digi freebie from Sylvie at Creative Mind of Sylvie. Now although I have lots of unused rubber and digis, these shoes just had to be used at once! I decided to paper piece the tops of the shoes and add a little peel off for the gemstone. The smallest layer is made using an embossing folder with an ink pad rubbed over, as is the sentiment.
Of course I had some bits over from the paper piecing, so I decided to make another card with the leftovers. this time I paper pieced the soles and coloured the uppers with promarkers.
Both cards also fit the challenge at PaperPlay - layer it up.

Thanks for all your good wishes, I am feeling a lot better than I did. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday though. Whilst I was off work and feeling sorry for myself, especially as I couldn't craft, look what came in the post from Lisa at Mess 2 Magic.

The candy I won from her Blogversary - thanks so much Lisa.
