CDAC Holiday/Special Occasion Challenge

Here's another challenge from "Crafters Digital Art Center". This one is sponsored by Paperfacedesigns. Theresa has offered for this challenge an awesome freebie of a Halloween Boot called "Boots and Bling" Isn't it so cute? Check out Theresa's Etsy store here where you'll find her talented artwork along with some cut files and cross stitch patterns. So Theresa wanted us to bling up the boot! YAY! Right up my alley! Love Bling! Here's my "Boots and Bling" card below. The boot is SO cute! I would want one if my toes curled up and if I could actually wear a shoe with a heel these days. How do you like the sentiment? "LOVE!" It's from Tracy Vinson over at CDAC. She has given this and a Thanksgiving Sentiment to us. Thank you Tracy! I was looking at her page over at CDAC today......WOW this girl has some serious gorgeous talent! Check it out here. You will be engorged in some wonderful "Eye Candy". Tracy...Love your work!
On with the rest of the deets....Purple paper is in my stash. The background spider web paper is from Designer Digitals. They have some cool Halloween stuff! That shiny sparkly paper that is on the boot and bordering the spider web paper is called "Pearl Paper". I got a pack of it from a scrapbooking convention, but I don't know what company it came from. I made the big spider from a 1/2" circle punch and the legs are from the S.U. small oval. White gel pen was used on his legs and for his eyes. I used "Crystal Laquer" on the little spiders to raise them up a bit and make them shiny. All the gems and pearls are in my stash. Now the inside below. This card is going to one of my girlfriends.....Thus....the verse suits us grown ups who love to eat Halloween candy ourselves. I don't know where I found this verse, but I think it's hillarious! I saved it to my computer a few years ago. It was very poor printing quality so I retyped it on the spiderweb background paper after fading out the middle. The font I used is "Stereofidelic". I got so much enjoyment decorating this boot and then to top off all my fun this little verse was the "cherry on top"! Hope you like it!


  1. That boot is fantastic!!! So cleverly done!

  2. Love this card Kathy!!! And that sentiment is awesome and is the reason why I wait till the last minute to buy mine.

  3. You don't mind when people steal sentiments off your cards - do you, lol
    Absolutely adore the whole shebang but the checklist inside is just priceless!!

  4. Hello!
