For Billy

Man, I LOVE this sketch!!LOL!! I saw today's sketch challenge last night before I went to bed, and this card is what was swimming around in my head when I woke up this morning. I need a card to send to my BIL, I missed his birthday, sorry Billy!! I stamped the main image in Chocolate Chip and sponged and distressed the edges. The squares were made with my 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 punches from SU and they use the SU Outlaw paper. I added a ton of hardware and some hemp tied up like a lasso. The sentiment is from All Holidays and it was sponged too. For some reason my house got really messy yesterday when I was gone, so I have a TON to do today!! Thanks for stopping by again and have a great day!!
stamps-Bronc Buster and All Holidays

Prettie Wednesday

Hello everyone, it is Prettie Wednesday again!! Two weeks ago our fabulous illustrator for Paper Pretties, Joni, challenged us to write it out-which was to use your own drawing or writing on your card. Well, I hate my handwriting, and I can't draw to save my life, so I decided to doodle a border around my main image panel. Maybe a little bit of cheating going on here, but hey, I tried. I used my Rainy Day Friends set and colored Sophia in with my SU markers. The base is Bordering Blue and Always Artichoke with Whisper White layered too. I added a piece of AA DSP and pierced a border around it. I then added some white button brads to each side and a big white satin bow. This card is on it's way to Joni. I sure hope she likes it. Next weeks challenge was hosted by Danielle and it was to use circles on your card, so be sure to come back and check out what all the Prettie Girls have done with it( and this weeks challenge for that matter). This weeks hostess with the mostest is none other than our Prettie Mama herself, Christie, and she has challenged us to make a green and white card!! We would love it if you would play along, just be sure to leave us a link so we can check out your work. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
