Shoes

I've been in the mood to do some lettering on a tag for a while, and this week's theme lent itself to the whimsical style I wanted to try.  I found the quote (I Googled 'shoe quotes'...it makes me laugh that we can Google something so specific and have plenty to choose from!), and inked it in a not-too-serious style, then added color with watercolor markers.  The cute die-cut tag is from Core'dinations.  I've had the tiny enameled shoe charms in my stash for years (I still have the matching purse charm!), and they were the perfect touch to hang from grommets I added at the bottom.
Anyone inspired to go do some shopping?!?
After all, life is short!!
