Kick Up Your Heels!

This is New Year's Eve! 2010 is finally over! We've seen a lot happen this year and I pray God will bless the United States this coming year. I hope our elected officials will get their act together, end corruption, and work to make this country great again. I pray for revival in this country. What are you looking forward to?

The owner of the local scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ gave us instructors a piece of something that looks like wood lattice.  My mind immediately thought western and cowboy boots. Then I seen a card sketch on one of the many blogs I follow and this is the result:

I'm still playing with the gold brad/eyelet stickers and my crimper. I used card stock from my stash and black cardstock strips that we used to carry.

I colored the boot with Copic Markers: E79, E29, E57, E55, YR24, and the Blender.  Isn't this "lattice" cool?? I still have a fairly large piece so will have to do some more thinking what to do with it.

Very cool - really give a "western" feel the the whole card.

Hello my Angel friend! I hope you are doing well.

Lovin' the lattice behind the boot. Perfect for this image. Great card Carol!

Have a Happy New Year!

Good to see your creative mind buzzing. I'm suspicious of my wanting to fit the lattice over some polka dot paper highlighted by a round tag displaying a greeting. Yours is much more elaborate. Good go, Carol.
Keep Looking UP!
