Killer Heels

Yesterday was my birthday, today it's my son's, it will not be as jolly as we might have hoped, as this week he and his wife lost a baby at about 15 weeks gestation. It has been quite a difficult time for us all.
At  "Less is More" this week, we have an inspiration picture on which to base a card. It's this fab pair of killer heels !
Aren't they just something else!
If only I could actually wear something like them, but for me they truly would be killers!
My first card has an image from Bugaboo, coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and then glazed with Anita's 3D Gloss. I'm not sure of the origin of the DP, it's been in the drawer for quite some time, but it may be Pink Petticoat.
The sentiment, a saying attributed to Marilyn Monroe, was computer generated. After taking the picture, I added a panel dedicating this card to a friend for her 50th birthday, I think that it improved the layout somewhat.
More Bugaboo here from the same set of images. Once more with a computer generated sentiment and coloured with alcohol pens.
This one has a Hobby Art image, stamped and clear embossed then framed with a simple frame. 
We have had Daisy our granddaughter staying this week in the first week of her school holidays. It seems impossible to think that she has already completed her first year in school, what a joy she is!
Have a good week everyone.


  1. So sad to hear of your family's loss, Chrissie.
    And a belated happy birthday to you!
    May you be blessed!
    Thanks for the beautiful inspiration this week!

  2. Sorry to read about your families sad news.... wishes to you all.

    The shoes are amazing! I'm like you can't wear such gorgesouness these days but would have a few years ago.
    Love the all the cards, my daughter has a "thing" for shoes so I will have to try and join in at LIM this week.

    I don't think I've ever been able to wear heels this high! Love your cards :) Cathy x

  4. OMG Chrissie if I wore these I'd be 6'4"! Love them though, great theme this week.
    So sorry to hear your news, I know how hard that is.
    Belated wishes for yesterday, we are in Portsmouth this weekend on Charlie sitting duties and hoping to get out today weather willing!

  6. Hi Sweet Chrissie! I was thinking of you on your birthday. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your grandchild; miscarriages are heartbreaking.

    Your shoe cards are absolutely fabulous! The first two are particularly stunning images and the card design for the third card is fantastic.

  7. So sorry to hear this sad news, sending positive thoughts to you all. So sad.

    I think the inspiration photo is fab - I certainly couldn't wear them!! Love your cards.

  8. Your cards, as always, are brilliantly inspiring, Chrissie!

    I wish I'd have known it was your birthday yesterday! Happy Belated Wishes, even with the very sad news. I'm so sorry for the loss and heartache.

    Big hugs! Darnell

  9. What a damper for the birthday celebrations. But there will be others for you both God willing.
    Love your cards. There was a time in my life when I bought a new pair ever 2 weeks. And most were heels. Flats for me now and not nearly as often.

  10. Sorry to hear the sad news Chrissie. It's happened to me twice and I feel for them...I do hope that you and your son were able to enjoy your birthdays. Your cards are awesome but those shoes are not my style. Maybe twenty years ago.Too many foot problems these days...

  11. Hi Chrissie.....sorry I missed your birthday yesterday....happy belated birthday and best wishes to your son for today...
    Sorry to read about your loss this week....

    Now onto your cards...all beautiful as always.

    Take care
