Kick off to Fair Week

It's the last week of summer break AND it's Fair Week!!!  My boys are so excited to go to the rodeo and wear their new cowboy boots...they are counting the days!  I woke up at dark o'clock this morning, but forced myself to stay in bed a little while longer.  Of course I couldn't sleep because my mind was brewing up images for a fun fair themed card.  I knew I wanted to use the super cute cowboy boot from the Bootiful Occasions set.  Just wasn't sure about a layout.  Until...I saw a sketch at The Paper Players!  This is the first time I've checked out their site and I am soooo happy I did!  The sketch was perfect for this card!

Love, love, love the look of the new Core'dinations Card Stock and the Woodgrain Embossing folder together.  Makes me think of the bleacher seats at the rodeo.  Add in a few Antique Brass Brads and some linen thread you've got the look of a saddle and rope! 

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock, Festival of Prints DSP
Ink ~ Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Stamp Sets ~ Bootiful Occasions, Merry Minis
Other Supplies ~ Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Antique Brass Brads, Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Merry Minis Punch Pack, Curly Label Punch

Ready to enjoy the last week of summer and have a ton of fun at the fair!

Happy Stamping!
