Classy shoe for a classy lady!

We have a friend who is having some medical issues.  His wife has kept us up to date with treatment and I talked to him yesterday, his spirits are up and I have faith that he will beat this.  I made this card for his wife.  If you knew her, you'd know how perfect this shoe is for her.  The blue alligator print has a shine that you can't see in this photo.  I found the file for the shoe on the MTC library.  It was in two layers so I copied the bottom layer, reversed it, welded the two shoes together and cut out the shaped card.  Then I cut out the DTCW Gone Wild paper for the overlay.  She might even have this shoe.  The inside says "Please remember to take care of yourself, too."

Snippet: Excerpt from Housekeeping Monthly - 13 May 1955

The Good Wife's Guide:

"Prepare the children.  Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair and, if necessary, change their clothes.  They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.  Minimise (sic) all noise.  At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum.  Try to encourage the children to be quiet."

  1. I love that awesome shoe, Cindy! I wouldn't mind having a pair like that. :) How great to send a card to the care taker. They need encouragement too and sometimes they get forgotten - though not on purpose. xxx
