Taylor’s Challenge: Western Hello

western-hello-lcraig-090708.jpg

Can you hear me cheering? My friend Taylor gave wings to a dream this week and released her very own stamp line. Her vision, her research, her patience and planning….it’s all paid off, and cupcake lovers and card makers everywhere will reap the benefits, calories not included! You can see her darling sets, released this past Friday, HERE. I knew I’d participate in Taylor’s cupcake card challenge this weekend, and while I’m waiting for my stamps to arrive, I needed a masculine card without a bunch of fluffy girl stuff.

This paper is from Flair Designs, I snagged it up because it has the state song of my home state collaged into the design. I accented the sheet music with stamps from For the Men and Time to Stamp – Rummage Bin sets from CHF. I aged the music using the Burnt Edge Distress Ink technique.

I’m still still working on that craft room – I actually took a picture mid-day yesterday – Words cannot describe, and until I get it orderly, I’m too embarrassed to show you! LOL! So, wish me continued sorting and organization success.
