Howdy do!!


I'm so proud of myself....I actually was able to join in with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge on the SAME day that it was posted!!! Yesterday morning I had this idea in my head of the image I wanted to use and the dp to go along with it and it didn't take long to come together!

I used Ride 'Em Cowgirl for the image and sentiment and coloured it in using my Copic markers. The dp is by Flair Designs and I used Chocolate chip for the base and Barely Banana for the accents. I added a pop of red with the grosgrain ribbon and dirtied everything up with my Vintage Photo distress ink. Now I also made this card for the Ways to Use It challenge posted yesterday on SCS as well, which was to use a charm. Well, I wanted to use antique copper brads and accents but the only charm I had to go with this creation, was silver. So instead I gave the 'illusion' of a charm, by adding a loop of linen thread under the ribbon and attaching a heart shaped brad through the thread. It matched!!

Well, I'm off to work again this afternoon but I'm excited because it's my last shift this week and I have the whole weekend off!! Yay! I am planning to go to The London Scrapbook Expo tomorrow morning, so be sure to grab me if you see me!! I'll probably be wearing my pink and black MFTDT t-shirt or carrying my MFT tote bag, so I'll be easy to spot!!!

Be sure to stop back here tomorrow for some exciting High Hopes news!!! Heehee!!
