WOYWW 437 - I made something!

Hello again deskers.  Yet another Wednesday.  Time to report to desk duty for WOYWW 

You did all make me smile with your comments about the boots...
so...
I did nearly include one last week. 
You know (well Jan does) how I love my up to the knee (over the knee) boots!

It was hard to do with me in them; but I wanted you to get the full effect as it were.

Lush, aren't they!
 on to the made something bit of the post!

I have a friend whose birthday is soon

I forced myself to finish the card tonight (I have a raging sore throat and am coming down with a cold)
 started with a brayered background with Fresco paints in blues and white
the image is by Dina Wakley and the sentiment one of Julia's Mama's I bought crop before last.

Will be catching as many of your desks as I can soon.

Oh boy Helen, I wondered what I was clicking into when I saw those boots haa haa!! I have to admit they are pretty spectacular. Love your handmade card, I'm sure your friend will be delighted with it. I do love these WOYWW, I'd love to participate .. Hope you are feeling better soon, I've recently got over the same flu by the sounds of it, hope it doesn't linger too long.
Hugs, best Wishes & Take good care until next week Tracey xx

Awesome boots, I'm too short, wide width and fat calves, so boots don't work!~
Like the stamps you have used on your card, Have a great WOYWW

Love the card, gorgeous image and of course the background ... With the fab Fresco paints.
I used to love over the knee boots. Gosh, donkeys years ago (about 50) I had some patent over the knee boots. Out shopping, and chatting to other young mums one day, a child got on the floor to look up my skirt to see where they ended. It was so innocent and made us laugh. Hope it doesn't happen to you.
Take care
Hugs, Neet 4xx

Hi Helen, my those boots are gorgeous! Adore the colour, and suede- I could stroke them all day.Love the card image, so different. I think I need some sort of plan to have a go at art journaling, certainly at first, or I'll just sit staring at a blank page for hours, lol. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #1 XxXx

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Ha! You look great in those amazing boots, legs to die for!!! And if nothing else, you could always get a bit part in Robin Hood panto :-D. Sorry to hear you're poorly, I'm fighting something too. More whisky I think, lol!!
Hugs LLJ 11 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

They really are fab boots. With your figure, they look amazing balls. Spect you'd like a pair in every colour! Had to smile at the nightmare of having to re-set the internet this morning.......the only time when you suddenly can't love your stash! Hope the cold doesnt strike you down gal..it hasn't affected your mojo..great card!

butterfly said...

Definitely lush boots, and you wear them well! Love the card - so happy you got something made. I've just been through the raging throat, miserable cold cycle and it took me right out of the craft room. Hope you avoid the worst.

Gorgeous boots, Helen. I have footwear envy now. I'd love to be able to get in boots like that but I have thick calves and struggle to find ones to fit. Enjoy them,
Love the card too and hope your cold doesn't slow you down too much, take care.
Hugs Lisax #16

Sue said...

Hi Helen, Loving the boots. Never had even knee high ones, as I have big calves. Have circulation problems with my lower legs now, so can't have anything restrictive.

The card is lovely.

Hope your cold soon goes. Sending heaps of positive healing thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy WOYWW

Love those boots!! Don't think they'd be very comfortable in our Arizona heat even in winter. And love your brayered background and card. Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great week!

Shoshi said...

Fabulous kinky boots, Helen - my favourite colour! Don't you get any paint on them lol! Well done with the brayer background - not easy to do! Thank you for your visit and your kind words about my cards - people do seem to like them so perhaps they are OK! I just wish I'd done the toppers on card and not paper, as they've buckled a bit. Margaret and I had such a great time!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #8
