Cowgirl Birthday Card & Link Up Love Party

Well howdy y'all!!!!  Oh my goodness, it has been a busy first week back at school!  The first week is always a tough one, but the kiddos seem to be adjusting to first grade pretty well...  My bookmark was a big hit with all of them, and they are loving the chapter books, so it turned out great!  :)  I can't believe it has been a week since I posted anything!  I was finally able to sit down and make a card, and one of the challenges I wanted to enter is now closed... :(  I am still going to enter it into a couple of other challenges that I came across, though....  Hope you have all been doing well, and I hope to stop by and see you soon!  :)

Whimsical Wednesdays- use 3 cuts, 3 colors, 3 of the same embellishment
The Paper Variety- use twine
Birthday Sundaes- use at least 3 brads


A2 sized card
Country Life- guitar cowgirl cut at 4.18"
Storybook- denim piece cut at 3.35"
Gypsy Wanderings- music notes cut at 0.65"
Sentiment- K. Andrew Stamps:  Positive Thoughts
DCWV paper- The Lodge Stack
Star brads
White gel pen

I am also going to enter this into the K. Andrew Link Up Love Party!!!  This is so much fun and it really does help you meet a lot of new crafty friends!  :)

Link Up Party Every Month!

Start at http://www.gettingcricky.com/ for all the details on how to join in the fun!  :)  One of the rules is to name something you are grateful for....  I am grateful for all of my friends and family, and a job that I really do enjoy! :)
