Things have been so busy around here. I took some time today, though, to make a couple of key chains for my daughter and I.
Since these are the first ones that I have done, I learned a few things. I'll be able to improve them as I do more later, but I can say that I really love these little things. I look forward to doing more and to doing some different designs. The "Plain Jane" design for this was a free design to try. I added the "I love horses" in the middle.

A friend of ours had a horrible wreck in North Dakota on Christmas day. I wanted to make a card to let him and his wife know that we're thinking of them. Making cards for men is usually a difficult process for me, but thankfully, he's a cowboy (yeah, a real one!). I can totally handle that.
I used an old set from Clear Dollar Stamps for this card.
The sentiment speaks of our love for horses. I used a Spellbinders' die to do the edges of the sentiment layer. Then, I used the airbrush to age and 'burn' the edges.
Hemp twine was perfect to use for my rope. I had to make sure I kept my coils even or Joe might fuss at me! LOL! I used glue dots to hold the 'rope' on.
Oh ... the image was colored with my Copics .... surprised?? Haha
If you get a chance to pray, please pray for healing for our friend Cowboy Joe. He has a long road ahead of him, and he will appreciate the prayers.
Hope all of you had a great Friday. Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
