Courage

Hello...

I hope that I don't cause any of you to pass out cold, but guess what?  I am actually entering a few challenges!  Yup - true story.  I think it's probably been months since I've entered one.


The challenge at the Bugaboo called out to me this week. I've been eyeing this great digi at the Bugaboo store for a while now, so thought it was a great time to nab it!  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers for my blue mat behind the twine (see my sidebar for details)!  I rarely create without these wonderful tools!

Hope you are having a great week.  Ours is going well, although it is SO quiet now that all of the company has left us.  The baby shower was a huge success, and I will be sharing photos soon.

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Aw, shucks, if this ain't the cutest card ever...Love that little cowboy and you've colored him so beautifully. That was a wonderful choice of the EF & the color really made me think of saddle leather. Add in the rustic twine, a perfect western card. TFS & enjoy your quiet weekend. Hope all is well. Hugs
