A Wild West Birthday! Yee-Haa!
*whewee!* I'm plum tuckered out after making this card!
I desperately needed to make a card for my sister Mary’s birthday (which is tomorrow!), but as usual, I couldn’t make up my mind which image to use. I remembered the hoard of card kits under my desk and pulled out the bin and was overjoyed! I totally forgot that I had sorted them by stamp companies into gallon-size zip-top bags! Woo-Hoo! So I reached into the TGF bag and pulled out a cute kit featuring Wild West Anya! The kit included the images, super-fun papers, and the jute string. All I added from my stash were the buttons and cardstock! COOL!
You’re probably wondering why I don’t have anything matted with Nesties. That’s because this is my entry for the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. This week’s challenge is to create a K.I.S.S. card – Keep It Simply Shaped! The rules are simple: no diecuts, no Nesties, not more than one punch, only straight edges on any layers, and not going overboard on the embellies.
This little filly all dressed in her blue suede Stetson and matching boots is waaay more than just a pretty face. She's quite the cowgirl, too!
Would you just look how Anya has lassoed a Yee-Haa cut from DP to wish Mary a happy birthday! (Yes, yes, those are curved edges…so sue me. LOL!).
I wanted to use more of the twine on the card, so I tied her braids with some and added the little loopy loops behind the image panel – do you like?
I gotta tell ya, I am so thrilled with way this card turned out! I’m glad that I finally had a bit of time to play in a challenge! Why don’t you hop on over and play along, too? You have until December 16 to upload your creation!
I’m so glad you stopped by and visited today! Happy creating!
