Timeless Tuesday ...card for friend

Well it's Timeless Tuesday at 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.

very pretty card, so soft and lovely!
I thought of you yesterday when I saw on the news that Billings had an oil spill. Hopefully that hasn't affected the area where you live!

Another beautiful card. I love the zinnia stamp set. So I will have to get that stamp set. I have many of them growing in my garden. Glad that you had a great 4th. We spent all day picking up branches and tress from the storm that went through here Friday night that was our 4th. Mary L

Hi there Pat! Your card is gorgeous...I love Zinnias, reminds me of my mom...who planted them every year (unless of course they come back every year)...I do not know much about flowers...LOL...Funny, my best friend has the same name...only I spell it Lyndy! TFS!!

This is so soft and pretty Pat. I have a hard time with soft feminine colors. Your pig races and cowboys sound like a great way to spend the day. Love them cowboys. My heart is in Illinois so I know that feeling all too well. :)

Leslie Miller said...

Sounds like a real good time, Pat! I can see how after all that excitement with the pigs and cowboys you'd want to cool down a bit with your pale pink and very pretty card.

Pretty card! You can never go wrong with pink or flowers or friends in the Mitten. Sure glad that you are getting to view some of the "wildlife" out there, though pictures of cowboy butts would have been nice...

ChristineCreations said...

WOW...pig races, you're definitely in the wild west. Sheesh! And reading your blog...you are definitely up for the challenge :)

Such a pretty card too, I love this image too.
