Converse Style....

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your all having
a wonderful week so far! I'm looking forward to the weekend...
Hopefully once I get my house cleaned I can actually craft something....
Keep your fingers crossed for me so I can craft.... it's really been awhile!
I wanted to share a quick card with ya today.... My middle son Juston will
be 17 years old tomorrow! And I needed to make him a card (QUICK)! :o)
And for some reason both he & my older son Mathew LOVE
Converse Shoes.... Sooo my thought was to make him
a shoe card... and well here it is! :o)

I have very little time these days so his card is very simple....
All I did was weld the card together using my Gypsy & the
Nifty Fifties Cartridge... I did some Faux Stitching &
wrote "All Star" (which I didn't do to well) But I thought
it turned out rather CUTE! OK Not "CUTE" but maybe
"KOOL" to my kids standards! :o) He never asks for anything
for his birthday or Christmas for that matter.... He's my difficult
kid to shop for.... so he's getting some cash & a gift card....
Don't worry... he never reads my blog! It's all good! LOL

Anyway... thanks for stopping by.... I hope you enjoy the
rest of your week and try and have an AWESOME WEEKEND!!!
