Hey Cowboy

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Ran a few errands today and picked up my new glasses and did some clothes shopping.

I am pleased with the new frames. Sometimes you pick out the frame and then when you get them you're not so sure. But that wasn't he case this time. Good thing- glasses are so expensive even with insurance coverage and you have to keep them for at least a year.

As for the clothes shopping, I just picked up a few new tops and a pair of slacks. It's been awhile since I went shopping. But, it's always fun to get new clothes. Don't ya think??

Well onto my card for today. This one I made for the sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. Korin was our hostess and she provided a super easy layout to work into a card.

I used the cowboy image & sentiment from the Marks Finest Papers set "hey cowboy". The sentiment I stamped on some rick rack that I die-cut.

I stamped in chocolate chip ink and then used a pumpkin marker for his lasso. I wanted to give it a little color since I chose not to color the image.

My card background is done with Stampin-Up's pacific point designer paper. I added a pacific point corduroy button and some twine to resemble a lasso. Punched some stars and that's my card.

It's late and time to close this post. So until next time........God bless.
