This ain't my first rodeo
Howdy cowpokes! This here little lady is ready come what may cause it ain't her first rodeo. LOL This is "Howdy" and I picked her to make my card for this weeks "Anything Goes" challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.
For my card I used some woodgrain for the background and then stamped some swirls in Vintage Sepia for some interest. I die cut some chipboard stars and covered them with DP and used a chipboard buckle that I covered with Distress Ink and Crackle Accents. I then cut a strip of grunge paper and used Distress on it also, threading it through the buckle.
Anything goes is easy peasy so get out a Mo image and come join in the fun for your chance at a $5.00 gift voucher to Mo's store.
Wanted to thank everyone for the encouragement about my announcement yesterday and thought I'd share this photo of my backyard after yesterday's huge thunderstorms. I think we got 4-6 inches in about five or six hours. Lots of flash flooding. Hubby's poor garden lies beyond the scuppanong vines in the background or at least it did before it floated away to the Gulf. It's supposed to rain some more today. YAY!
