I know I haven't posted much (to say the least!) lately, but this should be changing this weekend. I've had many plans in the works, and now I'm ready to start sharing with you again! So I do hope you will bear with me and continue to follow my blog! I do want to share a card I made for a friend's dad who is a fan of all things western and of the movie, Tombstone. Actually, I didn't know where I would find some of the images I needed, but Doodle Pantry came through for me! They had the perfect images! I really love their digis! Go by and have a look at their store. So here is the card:

Sorry I didn't have time to crop the picture. The gun and the quote at the bottom are from  Doodle Pantry. To tell the truth, I didn't even know that the quote was from Tombstone or what it even meant until my son told me! lol  The star is from a stamp in my stash that i stamped, heat embossed and cut out. The alpha for DAD was also in my stash, and the western paper with the hat and boots is from Paper House.  I thought both went perfectly with the western theme. I added some gold stars and some thick string that I attached with a wire. I was pretty happy with the way that turned out! I just have to show you the inside of the card, too.

The saddle is on the top half of the card when it's opened. I just had to put is somewhere! I thought it was so cute! It's an image from Doodle Pantry, which I printed, colored with Copics and cut out. The bottom half of the card has more paper from Paper House, with the cowboy sentiment from Doodle Pantry and Father's Day stamps plus a red star brad from my stash. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back soon, and I hope you will too!
