Lets go on a Hay Ride...

A couple weeks ago some new scrappy friends here in San Antonio were heading to the new Archivers about an hour or so north of here.  So I kindly asked if they see a stamp I was looking for (ok lets be honest here I really NEEDED the stamp) that I would be for ever grateful if someone could pick it up for me and I would meet up with them asap to get it and of course pay them for it.  So I guess all the planets were aligned and luck was on my side as it was there and they snatched it up for me. (Thanks again ladies)  So with that said here is my card using the Stampendous Hay Ride Kiddos stamp....

Isn't the stamp cute... Now you see whey I really NEEDED it... hehe

Here is a close up for ya...


Here is the amazing stamp from Stampendous
 I am really loving all the new stamps from Stampendous this year.... Can't wait to get busy on Christmas cards with some of them, but first I have to find the stamps in the stores...lol 

 So on to my weekend... which I spent it running here, there and everywhere.  Still trying to find my way around San Antonio. I still get lost..lol  While running around on Saturday we passed a cowboy boot store called Cavender's Boot city.  So on Sunday after the grocery shopping etc was done hubby and I decided to check it out.  Let me tell ya this place was packed with all kinds of Cowboy/Cowgirl boots.  Hubby got a chuckle out of me.. He is from Texas and well Cowboy boots have been a part of his life since he could probably walk. lol  Anyway Ladies if your looking for some bling on ya boots this is the place to go.. lol  So in walking around I discovered the Justin Ladies Gypsy boot collection and fell in love with this pair...


These boots are a total of 8" high vs the normal 12-13" which I love as the longer boots never fit my chubby legs right so I never wore boots before.  I am already planning on a 2nd pair. hehe   I hope your weekend was filled with fun adventures...

I will be back tomorrow with another card.  Till then... Happy Crafting.

An Altered Halloween Canvas...

So here's the story why my little blog has been suffering...  I started working Full Time again.  I love my job don't get me wrong, but I'm not gonna lie I also loved crafting 2-3 hours a day sometimes more.  Now I depend on the weekends to craft and I always seem to put my blog on the back burner.  So from here on out I am setting aside some time on the weekend to get my blog all scheduled for the week.  I hope that will help in getting things back on track because I have lots to share. hehe

With that said here is a project I made a couple weeks ago for Purple Cows.

Products Used:
Canvas
Wood Frame (Michaels)
Distress Ink
My Minds Eye Pattern Paper (6x6 pad)
Glossy Accents

Here is a close up photo for ya. 



A super fun and easy project to create to dress up a entry table or wall.  I promise it's super easy to do and one you an create in a mater of minutes.

As always my Purple Cows Projects come with a supply list and instructions...
