Boys to men,and a boot

Morning guys well the wind and the rain have stopped,its still cold but at least its calm.
Alice got the all clear from the Vet yesterday so thank goodness for that bless her just have to be careful for a bit in taking her for walks,not too far but can cope with that.
Right over at anything goes,this week the theme is boys to men,so for the man,or boy in your life.

I decided to use one of the images from MCS CD,so here it is,


The papers are from the CD too I have just added ribbon,and some,old washers I keep in my stash.
So if you would like to join us this week please pop over HERE to join in,and see the rest of the amazing DT cards,
Next I have made this boot,using papers again from MCS,so here it is,hope you like it,

The papers are from the Steam Punk,CD,charms are from my stash just added some lace to the top,and ribbon,which I got from Lindsay,thanks Hunny.Then I used more washers for the front,then punched holes inside them and added some,brads,well not brads sorry name has gone,the ones,with holes in,and you squash them at the back to hold them.
Anyway then I have threaded some string through the holes,and finally added some tags,and a buckle made from paper,added some tiny pins,to finish.
So that is,it hope you like it,had great fun playing with this.
Will pop over to see you all later off to have my hair cut,later and I am not even dressed yet oops,also thank you too all my new followers,gosh still can't believe I am getting new followers every day,thank you.

Siempre es de lujo ver tus increibles trabajos, son arte puro muy dificiles de copiar, por ese lado puedes estar tranquila que no veras copias de tus trabajos, imposible de imitar.
Cheryl, te agradezco tu visita, sé que el tiempo no nos da para mucho y que me comentes una sencilla entrada es para mi un honor.
Besitos y muchas gracias.
