This card is inspired by Dr. Seuss’s book, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! and will be given to a friend with these paper sneakers:

Both projects are entries in Splitcoaststampers’ DTGD Challenge, and today is the last day (which is why I’m going to keep this post short  so that I can go back and craft some more, there are a few more challenges I want to do!). If you’re wondering about the sneaker images on the card, I did a digital image, and if you want it, post a comment below (I’ll e-mail it to you tomorrow).   I sponged them somewhat, distressed the edges, then rubbed distressed ink. I did the same thing to all the other pieces on the card. Next, I punched holes on the shoe images then laced it with a quarter-inch wide black ribbon. As for the 3D sneakers, you can find the template here. I added faux stitching with a white gel pen, eyelets and punched a 1-inch circle with the image below (snag away if you want it!):

?here are other studies on how various oils affect the body such as, “Effects of lipid emulsions on lipid body formation and eicosanoid production by human peripheral blood mononuclear and polymorphonuclear cells. A certified nutrition specialist Virginia Worthington, after reviewing 41 published studies and comparing organically and conventionally grown fruits, vegetables and grains has concluded that there are significantly more nutrients in organic crops. This quality comes from the use of quality spices in the food during cooking. Natural substances bring the epidermis nutrients and anti-oxidants which is what it needs to keep in good health and beautiful. , Evanston, IL 60201, 338 Park Avenue, Glencoe, IL 60022, 1456 Waukegan Rd. Drizzle sesame oil over sauce, quickly stir and remove mixture from wok. Really worth as being a highly-therapeutic dietary therapeutic therapy. It does pay to experiment and use flavours that are not normally thought of as used in that type of bait. The matter faced in society nowadays in increasing levels of fat in many in style consumer foods and bad fats at that, so how will we have a tendency to combat this problem. The night cream and the day cream I use contains these ingredients and I am thankful for their contribution to my younger looking skin.
