The Big "50"

Last week was my Step Mom's 50th Birthday and I made her a lovely card that represents her very well I must say. My Step mom has a very large love for shoes our joke when ever she goes on a trip is how many pairs of shoes she brought back with her. She also loves shopping our family trips to the united states always includes a stop off in Grove City Pennsylvania, a little stop in Erie and obviously a stop at her favorite shoe store DSW before crossing back over the border. Well here it is :) It is one of my favorite cards I have made so far. She told me a fact she read in a magazine that people with a shoe collection/fetish generally has 30 pairs of shoes....I think she has almost 150 :)
