CASology 12 - SHOE


This week's CASology Cue Card is SHOE!


As I was thinking about this challenge, I remembered that I'm falling behind in making some horsey cards for my sister, the equine surgeon, to give to her friends and clients. So I used a horse shoe from Stampin' Up's latest horse/western set, Horse Frontier. Horseshoes are full of luck when they're positioned like this, so I went with that sentiment, using Stampin' Up's Contempo Alphabet and The Stamps of Life Mini4ABC. The flowers in the horseshoe are an from an old Inky Antics clear set, the stem is probably from a Papertrey set.

Now, gallop away and show us your shoes! But first, drop by and see what the other members of the design team have created:

Great way to use a horseshoe, and I love the contrast from the silver and the flowers.

I see you and Jenny were on the same wavelength while horseshoes never even entered my mind! Love your shiny shoe and the sweet little flowers!

Jenny said...

Great minds think alike eh!!! :0) Love your shiny horseshoe to substitute the 'u'....great sentiment.
My horseshoes are made with a quickutz die, I've had it for ages so not sure if they are made now but you should find one ebay :0)

Hi Ardyth,
Our family always had a horseshoe hanging above the door, everyone did, for good luck. Your card gave me such fond memories, I love it :)
