How's she goin'?

It's my turn as host over at The Sisterhood of Crafters today and I hope you'll join in our manly challenge - because I'm offering up a $5 gift certificate to FireCracker Designs in hopes that you'll be able to snag yourself some of these fun images by Bonibleaux Designs....that's right - our very own Boni Boutelle-Jones!

It's been a while since I colored a digi - like a week! Wait - it's been a week since I had such fun creating my last Sisterhood challenge card and I haven't been able to find much time to craft. Between landscaping, falling off the horse, household chores and everything else. Wait - you noticed that falling business, hey?! I may have failed to mention that to MrP, who finds my horse jumping a little unnerving. It's the first fall I've had in the year and a half that I've been taking lessons at my barn, though, so I'm figuring it was about time. Anyways, a few bumps & bruises, but nothing a visit to the chiropractor and massage therapist won't improve. My goal is to get more stamping time, but the summer sure is quickly zipping by.

I made this card for a friend who's been feeling under the weather and the sentiment inside says "Feel Better Soon". We always make hillbilly jokes so it seemed fitting - as soon as I saw the image, I knew who I wanted to make the card for. I loosely based it on Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (#82) for this week.

Stamps: Bonibleaux Designs Hillbilly Straw
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, More Mustard, DP
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Twine, Eyelet, Nestabilities, computer generated sentiment
