Once Upon A Time...#202

365 Cards had an interesting challenge for Friday ~ take inspiration from your favorite fairy tale ~ ~ ~I kind of like Chicken Little, that would be a cute card; then I got to thinking that I'm confusing fairy tales and I ended up going with one of my favorites...Little Red Riding Hood.  I came across the picture and it reminded me of a gramma & grampa and years gone by and poppies & hearts were what came to mind!
Hmmm now I see that Saturdays challenge is already posted....could I gain a day?!....
Thanks for stopping by!

#201 One, Two Buckle My Shoe

I'm a day behind on my card for the challenge over at 365 cards the challenge on Thursday was to use a shoe, any shoe....well something I didn't have so I just downloaded some clip art and went with the baby booties.  The little tag was left blank so you could add a name, date or little message when you go to use the card.  Paper and ribbon are from making memories.
