Cowgirl Up with Paper Issues


I’m taking a break from this weekend’s craft-a-palooza I’m hosting for a party of 1 here to link up to the new theme at Paper Issues kicking off today sponsored by the Twinery. I’m trying to work thru all the pre-colored images I’ve accumulated from Color Alongs or getting ready for releases. The pile is pretty intimidating, but I’m oddly having good luck though normally I don’t with having the image colored first. 8 card yesterday, 9 including 1 on Friday night, have all been put in the done pile!


when I heard what the theme was I had the idea for that twine criss-cross background, then when I finished it up it reminded me of the parts of a barn so I pulled out my colored up Cowgirl Mae (she’s a digital stamp) and viola! The sentiment is from the Clear stamp set Love Bandit, the cute sentiment for the racoons worked well with this cowgirl after adding the dark wood hearts. 

Alright! I know you have some projects with Twine on them, new or old, to go link up to Paper Issues. I’d be seriously shocked if you didn’t! So do me a favor… find a couple on your blog and DO IT! I’d love to see some Odd projects over there but any project will do 🙂 you have the next 2 weeks to link up so there’s plenty of time.

I’m headed back to my craft party but adding football to it at noon so I might not be as productive. There’s a whole lot of yelling at the TV that needs to be done at the same time and a girl can only multitask so well. 😉 GO LIONS!
