Flourishes and today we are to make a card that has "friend" on it. Well now that's an easy one as I have some fabbie friends that I love to send cards to. This one will go to my BFF Lindy, who is back in Michigan where so many days, so is my heart. This "wild and wooly West" is a tough place for this "mild, mellow & musty old lady" at times. Anyway tell you more about that a bit later. This Zinnia set is just becoming one of my favorite sets as it's just perfect for any kind of card. I used it along with Butterflies and Blossoms or Blossoms & Butterflies ( not sure of all the names) where I got the little phrase. I chose soft pink for my base and added just a bit of patterned paper I picked out of my scrap bin along with an ivory bit which I tore the edge of and then rubbed a bit of pink chalk on. Tied a pink bit of ribbon and well let's face it I'm finished here. It's a pale card but every now and then that's Ok with me...don't always have to be bright and perky. So let me tell you about my wild time, it was so fun and different. First of all we started the night with a great meal out and then headed out to the pig races...yep you read right, the PIG races. Little Porky, Shakin Bacon, and so many more little piglets were running there hearts out in a sizzling race. Let's face it,you'd run like blue blazes too if you didn't want to become some body's pork roast. Go little piggy was the shout for the night.You can bet on the races but the money goes to the high school for a fund for schlorships. It was pretty crowded but so much fun and since we wanted to take a different route home because that's where the ice-cream was ...we headed into a little village called Red Lodge. Well the rodeo was in town and everywhere you looked we saw Cowboys! I didn't have my camera but I've been told seeing all the cowboys is not all that unusual so maybe next time I can get some pictures of these cute guys in there hats, boots, and even spurs. Wahoo!!! So off to a good week after the wonderful 4th. with fireworks and all. See you soon.
