Kick Up Your Heels!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you week is starting off great! The weather is beautiful here today...sunny, 76 degrees, low humidity. The air conditioner is off for the first time in months and the windows are open, letting the fresh air in! Ahhhh :)
Challenge #7 this week at Cricut 360 is Old West. For this card, I used the Old West cart, which I think I have used only once before. And I got to use new crinkle ribbon that my good friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces sent to me! She makes and hand-dyes this ribbon herself and let me tell you, it is incredibly FABULOUS! I am so in love with this ribbon! Thank you so much, Karen - you are awesome! :) I also used a K Andrew stamp from her Fashionable Friends set. $1 from every set goes to Cancer Angels to help stage 4 level cancer patients. Cancer Angels gives at least 95% of all monies raised to those in need. Click HERE to purchase your own set.

Cute card, Lisa! Love the ribbon. Man, I wish it was 76 here! With the heat index we hit about 102 today in sunny north central Florida. Hot-hot-hot!

This is so fabulous! The patterned paper looks amazing alongside the embossed cardstock. :o) I absolutely love how you used the same pattern as a base and for the font.. with how it's cut, they al most look like coordinating papers as opposed to identical. :o) I love that you used a few horsies, too.. and the colors! The colors are fantastic. And the ribbon.. I want it! Hehe. Beautiful work as always, my friend! You even used the perfect brads! Brushed metal-look is awesome with this. (Sorry I always leave you novels! I can't help it!) Looking forward to the blog hop! :o)

Hugs and blessings! :o)
