Really Cute Boots -- for 3 Girl JAM (and a winner)

Hello, and happy Thursday, everyone.  Today's my day to post on the 3 Girl JAM blog and I'm excited to show you my creation.  It makes me giggle whenever I see it.
As is often the case, today's card comes with a story.  There's a nursing assistant where I work that is always looking for fun galoshes she can wear when she is helping residents shower.  She thinks it makes it more fun, and not such a loss of their dignity.  My father, before he died, used to laugh at her boots and say, "I want those boots!"  Patti would answer back, "You can't have them", or "They won't fit!" or something to that effect.  They had this "boot thing".  She misses my dad terribly, too.  So, Patti, this card is for you:
I used lots of 3 Girl JAM jute ribbon and string on this card, 'cause it added to the cute effect. The boots were colored with Copic markers.  They are a stamp from Unity Stamp Co.  The sentiment stamp is from Great Impressions Stamps. The 6x6 papers are My Mind's Eye Lime Twist.  The petite umbrella die is by Memory Box. The Kraft base is Close To My Heart.
And, in case you need a close up of the sentiment, here it is...
That's it.  That's all the advice I have for you today.  Unless, of course, you want some of this jute string and ribbon for yourself.  Then, I suggest using discount code JO10 in the 3 Girl JAM store.  It's good for anything in the store.  Yeah, Julie's like that.  Really generous. 
Have you linked up with our "All Things Spring" challenge yet?  It's going on the month of April.  Join in!
I promised to announce the winner of the 3 Girl JAM goodies from last weekend's "All Thing's Spring" hop. chose comment #21:  Sheri Marek.  Sheri, I'll be getting your goodies to you soon! (ribbon, flair, & vintage buttons)  Congratulations!
