A Bit of Texas and an Announcement!!!

Happy Hump Day...yep, we are half way through the week!!! YAY!!! So here in Texas it's all about Cowboys.....right? LOL!! I was commissioned to make a set of note cards that were western themed and this is what I came up with. This is a prototype I made for ME.....I didn't want to post the customers cards to protect their privacy and ranch name....but this is what the cards looked like. Those boots and hat there....they belong to the Texas Cowboy I married 22 years ago *smile* NOTE: No hats were harmed in this photo shoot!!!! LOL!!
I used the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the cow skull, Accent Essentials for the star burst and Storybook for the "C". I heavily distressed all the bits and pieces for that maximum rugged western look. The papers are Cosmo Cricket's Wanted line.
This is the ranch name.....we don't really have a name for our ranch, but this sounded fun to me so that's what I stuck on there....this was done by running my printed paper through the printer.....I love doing that!!!! You can see how I distressed the edges by using my sanding block....I love doing that too...LOL!!!
So here's the final product.....it was really easy once I decided what all I wanted on there...they are note sized cards so I had to scale it all down.....please let me know what you think....the customer was really happy with their set and I was too!!!!!!
*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*#@*
Now....I would like to proudly announce that I have been selected to be on the design team for Regina's Cutting Designs site....Regina Easter is one talented lady and offers you cutting files to use in your cutting machines such as Pazzles or you can print them out on your home printer and cut them out by hand too.
