Time for a Halloween post from me!
Here is this years card form the Forge Family (although I only made 4).
This is the first version.

It was alot of fun and was made with the Cricut cartridge  Happy Hauntings. You may have seen this witch shoe around blogland in different forms. Here are the rest:

They are all pretty much the same. All have a 6 inch base which is orange. All have a solid layer and then a patterned layer. This is topped with a holiday doily in bright orange.

The shoe itself is 5 inches and I used mt Expression machine to cut it. There are about 3 layers to it.
But to me the best part is the ribbon lacing. All I did was fold a piece of long ribbon in half, put it thru the bottom lacing hole, and wind it around and up the shoe. The othe half of the ribbon is held by mt fingers in the back of the lacing part of the shoe. You only need that piece when you get ready to tie your bow.
The shoes are pretty as is, or you can add some ruffled ribbon to the top and bottom, and some decorative edging with the Martha Stewart doily punch.
The sentiment is something I have had around my art studio forever.

 The sentiments inside are from Close to My Heart.  The set was their featured set of the month called Wicked. Its got some great images.
Many thanks for stopping by...
