Rockin' the Pink Cowboy Boots!

Coffee of the Day - Sweet Potato

Well I was finally able to get into my craft room and get one card made. still a bajillion to go, but at least I am off to a start! :) seems as if my 'honey do' card list just keeps getting longer rather than shorter as the days go by....

Since we have a theme at Camp this summer of 'Go West', all of the cards you'll see me post will be of a western theme.

Today's card uses a fun image by Mayzy Art that was actually created for the group over at The Outlawz. I'm no longer a member, but am a huge fan of Mayzy's work. she has some great fan art if you like that sort of thing. you KNOW I do. ;) check out her freebies page, too.

the nature/landscape images are from Eureka. I am using these so so much! you will probably grow weary of seeing them on all of these western projects, but they really do add so much character!

Papers are from the Carta Bella Giddy Up Girl digital collection, buttons are vintage, linen thread is by SU!, pink grosgrain ribbon is from my stash, rose is Wild Orchid Crafts, and bark star is from Live and Love Crafts. those fancy schmancy boots are cut with a Spellbinders die. as soon as I saw it, I knew I really needed to have it! I have this thing about cowboy boots with my crafting...guess it goes back to always needing to put my brave boots on! :)

Hubby was really nice and took the photo for me. on top of the seizures which won't seem to go away, I had some other yuck happen today that has knocked me out for the count. hope it doesn't keep me down too long. I have GOT to get more crafting done! ;)

hope to be back soon with more projects if my health allows. and yes, I WILL get to your blogs one day. really really!

love to all of you! Jennifer

p.s. the inside has also been decorated. I printed out the verse Acts 1:8, which is the verse for Camp this summer. I used a western style font, distressed the edges, and then sprayed it with 2 shades of glimmer mist. sorry there isn't a photo. will try to get one of the next card made.
