Card Sketch #36

It's Thursday, so that means there's a new sketch over at the Sketches! {by Tamara} site. Here's my card for Card Sketch #36.

Starting on Saturday, there will be the first Sketches! Guest Designer! Would you like a chance to be a Guest Designer on Sketches! {by Tamara}? If you would, use the sketch, and link it back to Tamara's site! She'll check out what you've done, and who knows? You might be the next guest designer! It is that simple!


For my card, I used Cosmo Cricket Wanted papers, paper border strip, and cardstock "yee haw" embellishment. I added Lil' David chipboard letters for the sentiment. The stars are Tim Holtz grungeboard! Yes, my friends, I opened up my grungeboard and actually USED three pieces! Wow! They are distressed with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy ink. I added three western brads to the border strip. That's it. Quick and easy, and I love it! It's so western!

I have BIG blog candy news that I will post later today or tomorrow morning. It's five days until my 42nd birthday, and on my birthday, someone will be getting picked by me to receive a present! Stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by!

Love your card Carol! That's too funny about the grungeboard, I used it on my card too and it was my first time using it (after buying it in Feb.), love the stuff though. Maybe your card will inspire me to dig out my cosmo cricket wanted paper now :)
