Boot Scootin'


The challenge over at Art Impressions this week is to use black, blue, and tan. Those colors just scream MALE to me.....hence, this masculine looking card. The boot image is from Kitchen Sink Stamps - love those "step" images they have and am slowly getting the hang of them. I used a texturz plate from SU on the tan/brownish background. Those are good when you don't want a really deep impression. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory. The sketch is from Totally Papercrafts for their challenge this week also.

On Saturday I attempted to post a note about all the wonderful blog awards I'd recently received but Blogger was just not wanting me to do anything that day and the post kept getting totally messed up! SO, thought I'd just mention all these wonderful ladies (and one gent) that had passed on an award to me....thank yall so much - Connie, Kevin, Lesley, Monica, Jo-Jo, Christy, and Kathy. (If I've left anyone out, I apologize). If you get a chance be sure and check out their wonderful blogs.

Also, before I forget, you still have one week (almost) to enter the Easter theme challenge over at Stamps R Us! Pop over there and submit an entry!

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

I love those boots! How perfect for a Texas lassie to make such a card! I'll have to track those down and get them. My daughter and her family lived 10 years in Texas before SIL's job brought him back to Calif, but all those grandkids born there are still Proud Texans! Such a perfect card, my friend! I'm going to be working on something blue and brown later this week but it's not going to be a masculine card. We'll see how it goes!
