Charmed


Several months ago a friend and I went to Hobby Lobby. She found a "sale" basket and picked up this charm of a cowboy on a bucking horse. It was so tiny you could hardly tell what it was. Well, she threw it into my basket and said I NEEDED it!!! It was only like 25 cents but I kept thinking - WHAT am I going to do with that thing! I threw it in the button container and forgot about it. When I saw the sketch on SCS this week (#302) and decided to make the card with the Little Buckaroo image from Stampabilities, I thought of that little charm. So I guess maybe I did NEED it after all!!! I wouldn't normally think of putting a charm on a little boys card, but I figure he'll be so busy looking for the money inside the card he won't even notice that charm!


Thanks for stopping by..............

This is a great card, love the colors and the different textures and paper. Of course who could resist this little image and little charm, see your friend knew you had to have it :). Say hi to Rambo and give him a belly rub, he must be loving the weather.
