And we could use one of her images. Well I jumped straight in even though i'm not big on using digi's, my daughter wants these or purple Doc martens for christmas:-

So can you see the reason for my creation today. Can't believe these boots have made such a big come back, I remember them in the late 70's early eighties when they looked more like this and came in black or red cherry:-



So I paper pieced the Doc martens, using my new LOTV papers Classic Christmas.
Please check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates. Remember to be in with a chance of winning You must use something on your creation thats at least 6 months old.

This is for the following challenges:-

1. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 130 - Inspired By A song (these Boots were made for walking)

2. Card Makin' Mama's - Try Something new (paper Piecing)

Recipe:-
Stamps - Squidgi Digi, computer generated sentiment,
Papers - LOTV Classic Christmas,
Tools - Nesties, cuttlebug, border punch,
Embellishments - flowers, ribbon, gems,

Thanks for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting
