Blacksmith Shoppe


Hello - finally the long weekend is here :-) We have decided to stay home this year because soon i will have to leave the USA again to renew my Visa - meaning a long road trip for the family again :-(
As you can tell :-) i used some stamps out of the Alota Western Set that i had used for yesterdays card, to make a boy themed card. I always thought that iam not into Western stuff lol but than i looked though my stamp sets and omg.. i do have like 4 different kinds. I think i just like them because i have 2 boys to make cards for and as a card maker i like them because the stamps let me go wild with hardware and other non girly embellishments.
Stamp: Alota Rubberstamps: Western Set, stars: Stampin up "Wanted"
Paper: Stampin up and DP found at Michaels
Embellishments: Making Memories: brads, Stampin up: rope
Coloring: Ink Memento, all Copic markers and Neenah paper an be found at 7 kids college fund
Tools: Stampin up: Paper piercing template
This card is made for this weeks Friday Sketcher Challenge blog. Please take a look what Carole, Bea, Heidi, Jaqueline , Kristine and Murmur came up with using the sketch for this week
