Naughty blogger!

Sorry I haven't posted! We've been swamped with real life this week. We're back in Decatur now! This time for my neffy-poo's first birthday. I made him a card (well, I guess it's probably more for my sister) and I'm super proud of it. I couldn't post it till now though. Obviously I didn't want to ruin the surprise. So here it is ...




All stamps are from SU! This one's all about the distressed and "sh-pritzed" western/cowboy look. Can you guess the theme of his party?? I stamped the main cocoa layer with linen (in chocolate chip) and then sponged and shpritzed. I took a piece of caramel, crumpled it then sponged, dtp'd, shpritzed and then set the eyelets with my cropadile. I really wanted it to look like a piece of leather. I used my edge distresser on the pumpkin piece after sponging. I just folded a little edge of pumpkin around the main card so I wouldn't have my usual problem of uneven edges. (Those are uber annoying.) I'm pretty sure this card was heavily inspired by several of Debbie Olsen's cowboy cards so props as always to her.

Anyway, Happy First Tru-dawg.
Love, Auntie.
