Hey there! About a week ago, my friend Wida and I decided to take an inspiration photo, make a card and share them on our blogs today. I’m thinking we may continue this, so we’ve decided to give it a name – Pint of Interest. This name stems from two things: 1. the first time I saw this pic was on Pinterest, and since that’s where we get a ton of inspiration from, it’s a play on words. 2. “Not really, but kinda” We’re not really, but kinda taking it seriously! Fun, eh?
I thought I’d be super crafty and make mine into a Christmas card…you know, kill two birds with one stone type of thing. Here’s our inspiration photo. I just love these boot socks! So stinking cute! I have a similar pair on order – one for myself in aqua and one for my step-daughter in linen.
I took the texture and color of the sock, the buttons and lace as my inspiration.
The base and buttons are Smokey Shadow – a warm grey with lots of brown tones. The buttons are turned so you can see the writing on them because I liked the extra texture it added. The button with the bow is a slightly larger size just to draw even more attention to it. It’s all pretty self explanatory, I think. The funny thing is that I didn’t even notice all the colors in the quilt that I could have drawn inspiration from until I was typing up this post! Too funny!
Here’s where I think I’m really funny though…I made this for Wida and sent it so that she either got it yesterday or today! Ha! (It’s really Wednesday as I’m typing this, so I don’t know when she got it. Go me for actually scheduling a post early! lol) I’m also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use your favorite – I love buttons! I haven’t been using them a ton lately but they are my go to embellishment.
So here’s the fun part, go to Wida’s blog, Beachorado, and check out the fabulousness that she made! Then stick around and see how fun and amazing her blog is! Feel free to play along and link up a card you make with this inspiration photo in the comments. All righty, off to finish a couple more Christmas cards! Thanks so much for stopping by! :o) lyss
