Heart 2 Heart

I really like the shoe image in the January SOTM, Find Your Style.
I've just not been really certain how to use it on a card.  I've read the cutesy "shoe" sentiments that have been put out but most of them just don't fit me.  So I decided to use my Tiny Typewriter Alphabet and Hodge Podge Alphabet to create my own.  Then I cut the sentiment from the Baby Impressions ("an entire world of possibilities waiting to be discovered") in half and inserted the word "is" between the two halves on the inside of the card. I've made it for a friend who thinks she "can't" do something.  She just needs to take a step of faith!
(This was for the Heart 2 Heart challenge, but not the card I set out to make, lol.  So I'll be back with the one I intended to make...)

Products are all CTMH: Cardstock: Sky, Sorbet and Pear.  Inks: Sky and Pear  Stamp Sets: Tiny Alpahbets, Hodge Podge Alphabet, Find Your Style, Baby Impressions and On The Edge


Can you believe I almost threw this stamp set out??  Yep.  I ordered it with credit redemption back in October when I made the Straight To The Top Status.  I guess it was such a bountiful order that this set got left on the bottom of the box, which I tossed into the black hole (also known as our garage...).  My HH was sorting through some stuff this week and found it.  Yay, my hero once again :)

Hope you are having a beautiful Monday!

I love all of your ideas of how to make our CTMH products go one "step" further. I love the dry emboss, (one of my favorite techniques), and so glad you didn't throw out Hodgepodge!

Love "step out in faith" sentiment. I too was struggling with the shoe stamp, but now I know what I'm going to do!
