FOSTV Challenge #16 Anything Goes
New week new beginning....Hope you had a good weekend. Here in the desert we had some much much needed rain. Today it is beautiful and sunny and everything is all washed clean. Today at Friends of Speedy TV we have a easy Challenge...anything goes. I have used the Cowgirls Rule image and it just so happens to be the free one for this weeks give away.This stamp set and many other can be found at Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps a Heinrich Co.
This image sooo reminds me of my
daughter. Her dad was a team roper and
she rode from time she was young.
She can ride like the wind! She had
several horses but the one she had
longest was a beautiful cutting horse
named Joe. They just clicked from
the get go. They would ride for hours
out in the desert and along the river
.She was Rodeo Queen for our area so
we traveled to rodeos in Ca, Az
and Nv she did gymkhanas, rode with
a drill team of ladies and did some team
roping with her dad but barrel racing was
her favorite. I am going thru old photos and
lots of memorabilia and decided to make her an album to put some of her pics etc into.
Because she is married to a military man and they move every three years she isnt able to keep a horse now, but when she comes home she always makes time to ride her dads horses. This image was perfect for the cover. I water colored the horse like her Joe. Also water colored the sign and hat. Cut the hat out and attached. Layered and stitched the image and stitched the floral base onto the paper bag. I used some silver Stickles on the barbed wire and horse bridle. Used a MS zig zag punch for the bottom border. Tied the holes with some ribbon and a ribbon to tie it closed with since it will be quite fat once it is filled. My team mates also have some Great Inspiration for you so be sure to stop by and join us this week.
