It's WILD CARD time, once again!

So, for me, that usually means something with Cowboys....

{...If I can "sell it" - know what I mean!}

And since THIS WEEK'S challenge included fabric, oh tumblin' tumble weeds -

~I'm in there, babies!~

Did somebody? ... I say ... did somebody, I say... did somebody say FABRIC!?!

Yeee Hawww! They SURE did! It's crafting with FABRIC, over thar, in JugLand!

What a FUN, fun, and super-delish way to get your craft ONNNNN! So much
possibility... If you're a complete and totally addicted crafter, paper or otherwise,
there's a huge chance you have a drawer full of fabric you just can't part with...

So now, I have to beg, urge and cajole you - CHECK out my girlzzz!


our wonderful guest designer for July...

Christina MacLaren

{Oh, sure, like I HAD to cajole... right!?!}

You can BET the farm, AND the tumbleweeds there's inspiration a plenty in Jug-Land!

Ohhhhh, nooooo ~ I just realized that July is nearly OVER! That
means this is our last week to be inspired by our lovely guest for
July - Christina! *sniff*sniff* Oh, DEAR! We will MISS her inspiration!
Thanks for all of your wonderful work on our behalf, my dear! Yet,
we KNOW her inspiration will still work wonders - here, there and
EVERYWHERE! {The girl is ON fire!} Thanks, AGAIN, Christina!

Meanwhile - I had a BLAST with this week's premise....

And I got to use that GREAT stamp once again!
{LOVE, love, love my Waltzing Mouse Western stamps!}

Here's what's on the inside!

I thought this would make a fun "dude" birthday card -
of which I never seem to have enough of! Love those
cowboy fellas - in MORE way than one...

Just sayin'.


Hey, now! I sure hope you're up to lots of crafty summertime
fun! I hope you'll play along with us this week. You know us.
The girls, the GALS, your posse of creativity ...
JUST US GIRLS! We can't wait!

Thanks for tumblin' by!

Well you do Western like no other, that's for sure! This is fabulous! I love the portrait circles sewn onto your card. And using your son's jeans for an accent? Genius! Love, love, love this card Elise! Such a fun card that any male would love to receive!

Christina said...

Elise, you are just the sweetest thing in blog-land! Thanks for your kind words and for making me feel so welcome at JUGS this month!

I'm loving the western flair of your card and the way you stitched the circles to the base. This is such a perfect masculine card! Yee-haw, indeed!

First of all, I have to say...LOVE the cow. My ister was almost named after a family friend's cow...which was Brenda. Anyway, I love your work! How do you come up with some of these ideas! Guess I need to get my head "out of the corral" and experiment! :)
