Card for a Cowboy

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.
