Saddle up!

Howdy all and welcome to my 3rd week as Theresa'sguest designer with her first and new set Out West from Gina K Designs. I think you can tell I have been having a blast with this set, and still feel so honored that Theresa asked me to showcase it. Here is my card I have done for today:




I loved coloring that saddle! And the hat too of course, but the saddle is so detailed and it really doesnt take much coloring for you to look like you did a good job coloring, kwim? LOL! I think this would make a perfect get well card for a male. Did you notice the 'barbwire' at the bottom there? I made that using fun wire, that really soft wire you can buy at Michaels in all different colors. I started out with two pieces of the wire, twisted them together then cut little pieces and twisted it around that and then took my needle nose pliers and squished them together with the edges sticking out like barbwire does. It was a bit tedious, I had planned on framing the saddle with it, but got tired of doing the little pieces, lol! Sooo, you got this little piece as an accent there at the bottom! Besides the sunset scene card I did, I really like this one the best! Do I say that about all my cards from this set? WEll, if I do, its cause I really have liked my cards I have done with it, and that is unusual for me!

Ok, hope you enjoyed this week's card. I have one more week of showcasing this stamp set of Theresa's next Friday, so see ya then for sure!

Cat: I LOVE the colors of this card and loved your description of making the barbed wire :) You have more patience than I do, I would have gone out to the farm and clipped off a piece of barbed wire! :O
