A Hoot n' Hollar!!

I'll be honest with y'all (pun intended)... I was scampering to get a card to post today because I have a kazillion things I'm trying to take are of and get done before I head off to Wisconsin for the weekend. I finally had to make myself stop and "reorganize" my thoughts!!! And... my computer a bit! Whatever did we do WITHOUT computers????? Ugh! I had to make myself a file because I was spending way to much time trying to figure out which cards I had posted on my blog and which I hadn't. Seriously people... is 48 THAT old??? Ha! My card today was made with Theresa Momber's, "Out West", stamps. This was a VERY simple and quick card to put together because honestly... well... I did something I haven't done in years. I used a few stickers!! EEEEEKKKK!!! I had this wonderful "kit" of coordinating colors, papers, etc. and not having a stamp that said exactly what I wanted... NOR the desire to stamp each letter out... I just whipped out these letters and stuck em on! As the kids say... "My bad." (Although I refuse to let my kids talk like that... please don't tell them I put it here.. hee hee.) There really wasn't much coloring involved in this. Stamping the hat and boots in black pretty much did it. I did color in small areas of the books with my black Copic but other than that and making a "lasso", if you will, from hemp, it was a pretty basic and easy card. Those wonderful screw brads are from Gina K Designs too and I really like using them on manly cards. But I do love the way this card turned out and I can just imagine getting that in the mail (if I was a dudette... hee hee) as an invitation to a "cowboy" dance. In all the years I lived in Dallas, I never got invited to "Do Si Do"... LOL Didn't say I hadn't done a few line dances in my time, but never invited to a real ho down... LOL I hope you have a great day and remember... come back tonight at 10:00 PM CST to join in on Melanie's, "Inspiration Mosaic" blog hop! I'll have links to everyone participating and you won't want to miss out!! Signature
