a cowboy thank you

WOW...what a tough week it's been so far...I have been thrown back into reality. Last week while the kids were on spring break we relaxed, slept in and just did whatever....I gotta say waking up to that darn alarm clock at 6:00AM is a big huge pain!!! It's been a struggle to pull myself outta bed in the mornings...especially when I spend the nights stamping and posting on my blog! Oh well...life is good! This card is actually 1 of 30 I made for a customer. Her husband needed some thank yous and so she asked me to come up with something! This card just screams Thank you from John {her husband...if you knew him you would understand why it screams his name} I did lots of distressing and sponging because when I think of cowboys I think of leather and dirt! I also used my color spritzer to spritz the image to make it look like mud splatters. The striped paper is from Cosmo Cricket. I used some burlap twine to make a "lasso" and stapled it to the image. I added a star...cuz a cowboy card just needs a star...with a pewter brad in the middle! These cards actually went pretty quickly once I got my layout and knew what I was doing!
{{{thank ya soooo much for coming by!!! There have been alot of you signing up with Feedblitz lately...I can't tell you how much I love that! It's so cool that there are gals out there who want to see what I am doing in my little corner of the world! It means alot to me and I appreciate it!!
