Howdy Y'All and Laura's Sketch 17 (2S4Y, week of 12 Jan 2009)

Okay, so I'm back to working on the scrapbook of our Ireland vacation in 2007. Celtic crosses, ruins (courtesy of Henry VIII), monasteries, sheep, and green, green, green. So, where the heck did this card of the great republic of Texas come from?

Here's the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You's challenge this week.

I want to thank Tami for the inspiration -- she showed cutting felt with her Sizzix, so I tried fun foam. Loving that extra thick look! (And I've even used it on the "Glendalough" page in my Ireland scrapbook! LOL!)

Supplies used: Cowboy paper, K & Company; Texas die cut, Cricut 50 States cartridge, black ribbon, Club Scrap; tan paper & black cardstock, unknown; fun foam, Darice; and cowboy hat & boots die cuts, Sizzix.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card!
