Gettin Hitched

For this week, Regina asked us to make something with the cowgirl hat on the paper dolls cartridge. Well, I had a lot of ideas, but just couldn't quite figure out how to pull it off and was getting frustrated. So, I started looking on google using "cowboy hat" as a search engine. I saw a lot of cute picts of people with cowboy hats and different settings and clip art. Finally, found a picture of what looked like a hay bale with a hitching post and a lasso and two horse shoes. I loved it and figured I could make that. Voila!!! Here it is.

Stars and Stripes

For our BBTB project this week, we were asked to use the star from George. It was a lot of fun to make using my cricut and design studio along with George, Zooballoo, & Beyond Birthdays. I cut the base out of white card stock. Then covered it with the Star paper then covered the bottom with the striped paper, both from the DCWV Summer Stack. I lined the back of the card front with silver mesh ribbon and then glued a piece of white cardstock over that. I braided a piece of white ribbon and attached the tiny clothespins with Glue dots. I think it turned out pretty good.
