I'm back!

I fell off the face of the earth last week. I had a horrible head/chest cold and spent all week trying to breathe, stop coughing, and sleeping. I'm still coughing and congested but somewhat functional.

This card is for a non-TAC™ images/TAC™ paper swap I'm in. The cows are from Pure Montana Stamps (no longer in business) created by Stan Lynde who created the Rick O'Shay comic strip in 1958. I met Mr. Lynde in Red Lodge, MT in 1988 or so when he and a partner teamed up with the idea to create the Montana Centennial Cattle Drive in 1989. I worked for an attorney and we did the incorporation papers of the two gentlemen. I don't know where the text stamp came from but the paper is: Winchester SWIC, Winchester cardstock, and the 8 x 8 Scalloped Cardstock Pad. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and stamped with Noir P.H. ink.

I have another technique class this Friday in Green Valley, AZ from 1 - 3 pm at the Desert Hills Social Club Art room. If you live here and are interested please sign up at the office.

So glad you are feeling better Carol! Great card- the winchester line works perfectly with the western images. Love the large scallops too! Great job!
