I made this for my friend Jeri down on the Three Ponies Ranch. We got a fun t-shirt for her at a 4-H fundraiser that has a "Bucket List" printed on the front: feed bucket, water bucket, grain bucket, mucking bucket, etc. Since I wanted to make her something with a country feel, and try a little gingham on for size ala a recent Moxie Fab World challenge, I made a folder cover for a Jr. size legal pad and tucked some handmade cards inside the pocket! I love the way the Hero Arts/Basic Grey Bold Flowers stamped on the gingham paper, and the two-tone look is oh-so-vintage--a favorite around our place! I wanted to do something a little different with the lace border punch and I liked how the title came out too with the Tim Holtz alphabet die cut letters. Sanded the Coredinations cardstock for a weathered look, and I was ready to send off a little something to my buddy!
Jeri was with me when I delivered my daughter, and it made for a special bond over the years. We Navy wives stick together through all kinds of times, and I always smile when I think of them. Here's a picture with Jeri at the 3Ponies:
That'd be my daughter on the left, and my son on the right. It doesn't get much better in life: good friends, good times, and big smiles! Yee Haw!
