There's No Place Like CHA..

I love lazy Saturdays. I just like to poke around the house, doing a little of this or that.

I have another card to share that was created for the current Moxie Fab World Blog challenge. This card isn't quite as Anne Taintor-ish as the other, but I loved this image from the Vintage Fashion ATC transparencies and thought it was close.

I was trying to think of something snarky I could say about shoes, but kept coming back to Dorothy's 'there's no place like home' from the Wizard of Oz. I wondered what place a crafter would want to be and thought CHA! (I know *I* would like to go to CHA - this summer I just might make it to Chicago!) So I took it and ran.

I added the rectangle border (cut with my Slice) and red glitter as a nod to Dorothy's ruby slippers. The newsprint background is actually from a shopping bag, and I tried my hand at one of the scrunched-up scalloped circles. The sentiment was computer-generated. Maybe not an exact match for the challenge, but certainly inspired by!

Enjoy your Saturday!
