Hey guys, hope you are all well and staying sane during these crazy times. I can't think of Easter without candy,
so here's my greeting card to you all. Hang in there, everyone!

What a wonderful scene! The upgraded pictures do credit to your work and creativity. Love it! The kids are adorable and those little shoes crack me up! What's the secret?

Here's a close up of the shoes. The kids' feet are sculpey clay, shaped just enough
to allow the figure to stand up. Then I cut pieces of fabric, apply with
a lot of Tacky Glue to conform to the foot. I snip out whatever doesn't look like shoe...
ha ha... then add thread, "rubber" toe caps" and laces. Viola, as they say.
