Happy Thursday! So I woke up really early this morning – 6:00 a.m. The problem, I didn’t get to sleep last night until around maybe 1:30 a.m. I settled in on the couch with the pups and my coffee, and then before I knew it, it was 10:00. Mallory was up the dogs were running around, and I never heard a thing. Good nap!


We all know that Sunday is Mother’s Day. I have mom’s card done, but I still need to come up with something else. She said the other day she needed to come over and go through my cards. She has resorted to the two for a $1.00 at Dollar General. Now I don’t mind that she sends them, but it does upset me just a bit when she sends one to a good friend and/or a relative that would definitely appreciate one of my cards. I gave her all of my Millie’s from the Dirty Dozen Gallery for her birthday and she said she just couldn’t part with them, but I do think she may have sent one to my sister. She loves the little cowboy from Lizzie Anne, and absolutely loves the zany women that I come up with. So here’s what I thought I would do. Make her some little cards over the next few days and also go through my stash and make her up a bundle for Mother’s Day.


I started this one of the cowboy last night, had it laying out to finish today, when I saw today’s Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast. It’s all about chipboard today and luckily I had not decided where my sentiment was going to go. Hello chipboard!


The image was colored with Copic Markers, the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then roughed up a bit. I made the background panel using the Big Paisley from Lizzie Anne Designs, stamping it in Blue Bayou on Soft Sky paper. To make the photo corner and middle strip, I stamped the same image on Blue Bayou paper with Blue Bayou Ink. For the sentiment, I colored a piece of chipboard with River Rock, sponged the edges with Vintage Photo, and then stamped my sentiment.
