Yee Haw!

      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!

  1. This sure is country and is so bright and cheery--perfect for Jeri! Love the flower--it is so gorgeous! Wish all my flowers are blooming like that (LOL)! Your photo with the kids is indeed lovely! Life sure can't get better than that! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your Dad! We are all connected in one way or another...whether in stamping or life in general. So glad to have "met" you! HUGS!
