What a girl wants, what a girl needs, whatever makes you happy and sets you free...

I had some play time yesterday, and thank goodness my mojo came back in time for the MFT Release! *grin* I've been neglecting my Unity Stamps that Angela was sweet enough to send home with me from CHA, so I got them out and inked them up!

My mom has been asking for some more cowgirl cards, so I found a way to tweak this journaling stamp from the Wanna be a Cowboy Kit into a card for a cowgirl! Fun, huh?


I stamped the horseshoe twice, once on Banana cardstock in black and once on Black cardstock in Versamark. I embossed it with Silver embossing powder, cut it out, and popped it up over the first one, after I added the rhinestone brads. The sentiment is hand-written and reads "My heroes have always been cowgirls."

The background stamp from this kit is stamped on the red panel, but my main image panel ended up covering it all up. *sad* Otherwise, I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I think my mom will love it!

Unity has a really unique mounting system, which you can read about HERE. The handles are quickly replacing some of my acrylic blocks...they're so much more comfortable!!

I hope you guys have a fabulous Friday! Check back tomorrow for a Sketch for You to Try!
