Happy Saturday!  It is a lovely, hot summer day here in PA, perfect for the start of the 4th of July holiday!  Hope you have some fun plans lined up!

I hadn’t played with the JUGS girls for a while, and this week’s challenge was a sketch:


I had to laugh when I saw Elise’s card here, because I had just printed out a cool cowboy silhouette and wanted to use it on a card.  Mine is not as spectacular as hers, but it was fun to make nonetheless, and will be a great addition to my masculine birthday card stash:


I can’t remember where the digi came from, but the other images are from Mark’s Finest, and papers are from Cosmo Cricket.  Here’s the inside:


Thanks for visiting today!  If you have any questions, just shoot me an email!

Leanne, I think of yours as more of a Paul Revere-ish figure than a cowboy -- Paul was just ahead of his time with the modern flag -- no bells! I LOVE the pics of your granddaughter, they always make me smile.

LeAnne! I LOVE this card, I really like the silhouette effect and the papers you used, what a lovely, patriotic card :) Have a great 4th!

Great card. It is a very pretty day here in WI. Yesterday was so hot and humid. Today is perfect.
I love the card. Is that a die cut? very cool.

LeAnne, another great card. I LOVE the twine sewn through the pinking hearts border, what an unexpected and delightful touch.

{Are you KIDDING me!?} Turn OUT the lights - I'm done. You've out COWBOYED me, for sure! But, sniff-sniff.... I'll survive, 'cause I'm tuff! {Like my horse trainer always says, "if you're gonna be dumb, you'd better be tough!} YOU are hall of fame, in my book, lovely friend! YOU made the JUST US GIRLS sketch ROCK! Yee Haw!
