Last Chance Reminder & Exciting News!

There is still one week left in the Clear It Out Challenge and I sure would love to see you participate.  Only 5 people have entered this challenge so chances are good that you will win if you enter your card.

First, I need to apologize for the quality of this photo.  I was having problems with my camera.  I chose to represent Texas for this card.  I used the colors in the Texas flag (blue, red & white) and chose an image that I thought represented Texas well.




This little cowgirl is a Digi Darla can find it here.  I colored her with my copics and Bic Mark It’s.

  • Skin – E01/E11
  • Hair – Y11/13
  • Hat & Shirt – R24 & Rambunctious Red
  • Scarf – Margarita Green
  • Jeans – B93/95/97
  • Boots – Honey Brown/Tiki Hut/Woody Brown
  • Belt – Tuxedo Black & Cloud Nine Grey for the buckle










The sentiment was created by me and will be offered up as a freebie in the near future so make sure to come back and look for it soon. 












The inside is where I used my washi tape required for this challenge.  Take a look…
