Spurs and squatting...

... great title, right?!  Ha haaa!  No, I was NOT recently at a rodeo where all of the Johnny- on- the- spots were full, but thanks for asking :)

I LOVE this stamp set from TAC... especially the sentiment... which is totally weird since I don't DO anything country.  Seriously... 


 #1:  I don't like the music (Kid Rock & Uncle Kracker are as country- fried as I get).

#2:  We all know I don't go outside much (I swear I'm part vampire... you know... the part about really pale skin... not the blood- sucking part) since I go from burnt lobster red to albino white with no tanning in between.   


#3:  Animal smells... especially farms... uh.... ewwww (yes, you may call me a princess).   

#4:  I never understood the fascination with Wrangler jeans... I'm just sayin'.

#5:  Need I really go on?  Just keep fillin' in the blanks, people!  :)

Stamps:  Cowboy Boots
Paper:  White Ultra Smooth, kraft, & DCWV cardstocks
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, Burnt Umber Palette
Other:  Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils & mineral oil, twine, We R Memory Keepers eyelet & grommet, foam tape

Hopefully my anti- country talk hasn't put you off... does the cute card make up for it?  :)

What do you think?

This card is AMAZING...just what I have come to expect from you!!! Awesome. I love country music, but that is about as country as I get, but I do have some barrel riding friends now that I am in OK, so this set was bought with them in mind

Sandy said...

Great card. Love the shading under the boot and I really like how you did the tag. I'm not country either but my brother in law is so I bought them too.

Debra Hensley said...

oh I absolutely love it Barb! I've lived in Texas most of my life and I'm not into country ( at least music wise) that much either but I love this set! Thanks for always being such a creative inspiration!

What a fun card! Love the colors on here! And loved your reasons for not liking country stuff!

Joan B said...

wow, you are amazing. this is gorgeous!

Christine said...

Barb I like country music but I am not country at all. Wranglers should be against the law! I like a little curve in the booty- not a flat one with a big patch on the pocket. When I met my hubby he wore wranglers- he looked terrible in them--I soon converted him to anything but wrangler! LOL I totally love your card, what new? ;)

Laurie Unger said...

Love the top 5 list!!! and I have to agree with you on the wrangler jeans! They just don't do justice to a good looking bum!

Great card - love how you did the shadow with the blue! I just posted a cowboy boot card too! how funny!

Jennifer Carter said...

You CRACK ME UP!! That list was just too good! Your card is awesome! This is THE BEST sample I've seen yet using this stamp set. Nice coloring...nice everything! :)

Bridgett said...

I love it!! You can't tell by looking at the card that you aren't a country fan! You definitely got this card going on! Love that sentiment, too! It just cracks me up!
Angel Hugs,
Bridgett

Stacy said...

LOL!! My DH thinks I'm strange because I like country music :) Love the card :)

Melisa Waldorf said...

teehee. I love this sentiment too! Could come in handy once I get to Texas. Terrific coloring and I love the shadowing.
