These Boots Are Made For Walkin'


Here's a very simple card I made using the Ride 'Em Cowgirl set from My Favorite Things that I got in my Paper Pretties box. I say simple because I kept trying to add embellishments, but nothing looked right. Anything I tried to add made the card look too busy. . .maybe because of the patterned paper. That big flower is like an embellishment all by itself. The only thing I really added was the fringe. The sentiment is actually on the inside of the card as you can see from the second picture.







I wanted to let you know that my mother-in-law is in a regular room now instead of the ICU. She's still having a tough time of it with her recovery, but at least she's out of the danger zone. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. I am VERY grateful! Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Ride 'em Cowgirl (MFT); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette); Paper- Wild Daisy Rd. (Heidi Grace); Accessories- Copic markers
