This weekend was pretty relaxing....I made 3 or 4 cards, a pumpkin pie--yum, and mom came over to learn how to make a stationary box! Anyway, I got my September SOTM club stamp from Paper Pretties about a week or so ago and I finally inked her up. I followed Dawn's awesome tutorial for a wooden floor, cutting the small piece that she's standing on. The card base and other layers are actually chocolate chip (they look black here). I tried to follow SC193 here, but it just looked too crowded to add those 3 strips across, so I left them off. Her skirt and scarf is paper pieced from designer paper, and the HOWDY pieces are bottle caps that I've had from a scrapbooking kit (sitting in my drawer for a few years). Here's a picture of the inside. The sentiment came with the cowgirl stamp, and the paisley is from a background mini stamp (SU!).
I know exactly who this one is going to...but can't say yet as she might be reading this =) Well, I have more cards to show you throughout this week, and I'm so happy to have discovered the "scheduled posting" feature -- I KNOW! I'm a little slow...I think it's been here all along, but I'm just now figuring it all out, LOL. It comes in handy when things get hectic, like this week will be for me. So, I do apologize that I haven't commented on all your blogs recently... I hope to get to them later this week. Ciao for now!
