I recently was checking out the images at Technique Junkies and saw this sentiment stamp called Kick Ass Shoes and just knew it would work out well for many of my lady friends who are having health issues. This card in particular is being made for a gal who had two surgeries in two months and now is battling infections.
I wanted to use the shoes by themselves so I cut them away from the sentiment....yes, sometimes I do surgery on my stamps. I then used the shoes to create a colorful background of lots of shoes so that it would be a perfect for my main focal image. But I screwed up when I put the shoes back into the sentiment. I put them in the wrong direction but I figured it still wasn't too awful so I left them that way. I decorated the shoes up to make them look a bit more fancy with the addition of a single rhinestone to each one. Since I stamped the sentiment on sand card stock I thought it would look better if trimmed with some black before placing it on the kraft card base. I also added some black glitter drops to the sentiment panel. Inside I also used the sand but added a bit of black to trim that along the top and bottom as well.
I hope this card does not offend anyone. My feeling behind it is that it will bring a smile and maybe even a chuckle to my friend. I hope so. I don't want her to give up! And, of course, she is in my prayers.
Take care everyone and have a great weekend. I so appreciate your visits and comments.

What a great card for someone dealing with health issue. With different kick ass shoes for each outfit she'll kick those health issues right out the door.
Not offended at all but rather pleased with your sense of humor and wanting to help a friend that needs support and cheering up. Great card!
Amused; not offended!! Love the background you created with your partial stamp, and the gems you added to the shoes on your focal panel are perfect! Love the sentiment as well.
Fabulous work Verna! This is bound to bring a much needed chuckle!
Oh my, your friend has been through so much in such a short time. I hope they get her infections under control and she is on the mend. What a fun card for her and it should bring a smile to her face. It would be fun to be able to wear shoes like that again, they are the bomb! Adding the rhinestones really dressed them up.
I love this card! The shoes by the sentiment look like they’re kicking, so I think they are perfect! I hope your friend feels better soon.
I think your card is great! So fun. It makes me think of one of my daughters who wears shoes like that and can use them too. Thanks for sharing this card.
It makes me laugh. I love the sentiment. I wish I could wear those shoes.
I've had surgeries that have developed into infections. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.[Bunny]

A little snark oughta bring a BIG smile! Love using the shoes as the background too! And as I remember, "kicking" shoes are usually pointed up! Praying for your friend too, health is such a difficult thing right now
