Happy Trails to youuuuu....Blog Candy too!

..until we meet again....lalala! Ok, done singing! Howdy again Ya'll! Welcome back to my 2nd time for Theresa's guest designer with her new Out West stamp set! I am sooo loving this set...just have so many ideas for it too! Well, I have been in a scene making mood lately and this is what I did for today: (be sure to read to the end for the candy!)


I was going for a sunset in the desert scene. I can remember when I lived in Arizona with DH right after me and him got married (for 6 months, I got homesick, lol) We went up on a mountain called White Tanks Mountain and I saw a sunset like this. The sky was just a brilliant orange! It was sooo gorgeous! Soo tried to capture that here, with sponging! And then created a 'trail' to go along with the sentiment, lol! I stamped the sentiment and then just took my ruler and drew around it, cut it out and made the ends jagged to look like an old sign. I then added the hat, cactus, and boots from the set to the scene. The little flower on the cactus is this itty bitty paper flower that I have no idea where it came from and how I had it, lol! But added it to look like the prickly pear cactus look when they have a bloom on them. You can't really tell from the photo, but I used some of that copper sheeting to punch out corner punches in the two corners too. I saw Theresa's sister Brenda use some of it and decided I needed some too! LOL! It looks so neat IRL with the copper brads. Ok, didnt mean to get so long winded! On to the blog candy!

Wouldn't you love to WIN this set?? Well, all you have to do is leave a comment here and then spread the word by just posting a little comment on your blog about it by Monday 12:00pm, HIGH NOON!! And from there I'll do the random DH thing to pick a winner! (if you dont have a blog, that's ok! I'll still enter ya...but let's spread the word, I'll be looking to see who did!) ;)

I hope you enjoyed my card today, I just think this first set of Theresa's is sooo awesome and am loving working with it. I will also have another one with this set next Friday too, so come back then too! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderfully creative weekend!

This is the first attempt that I've tried to win anything!!! and this time I'm trying only because I really love your card!. Much nicer than anything on Splitcoast with SU's west stamp sets. My blog is geared towards my Ebay store but I'm going there next to send viewers to your blog. Found you through Jennier (who is my Queen in cardmaking). My blog is www.PayneHollerCards.blogspot.com Thanks, Linda

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike
