Stampede Time and Using up some Scrap

With the Famous Williams Lake Stampede almost here I did this card up a little while back.  It has been on display at Creative Accents if anyone want to see it in person.  
I have paper pieced the boots, used a line stamp to do an out line around two layers, used peel and stick letters for the howdy, spellbinders label to stick them to and an little twine around the edge to add a little.  It is a very quick and easy card to do but I like how it turned out.  All items are available at Creative Accents.


This second card I did is also very quick and simple I used up some of my scrap ( you know those 1 inch pieces that you get when you trim up paper for something)  I have woven the pieces together then used a sewing border stamp to do the stitching (you can do it by hand with a pen and ruler if need be)  Simple saying and you are done.    I am doing a set of quilting type cards for a friend who is a great quilter. 
Well I hope you all have a great day.  It is raining again here so I think I will be spending a few hours in my craft room. 
Take care all and have a great day.  Thank you for stopping by.
