Save a horse.....

My friend Jodie has so much going on.  She is in her second year as a nursing student, her son just got married and she just turned 40 beautiful years old.  She also happens to be married to a nice guy that wears a cowboy hat, rides a horse and makes her very happy.
I don't have any real reason to give her this card except that she was the one that I thought of when I saw this digi stamp over at Nana Vic's on Crafters Digital Art Center.  What better reason to make it!
and inside

close-up of the boots

The main image is from Nana Vic
Hat and boots from Digi Doodle. (This is actually a digi stamp of a baby standing in the boots and wearing the hat.  I just cut them out, colored and put them on the card.)
The fence is a PTI die, embossed in a wood-look CB folder.
The DP is from DCWV photo stack.
The bling is from Recollections.
The waxed twine from my stash.
The card base is kraft cardstock.
Scor-pal used for score lines at bottom edge of card.

Thanks for visiting, would love for you to leave a comment!

Your card is wonderful, but I don't think the image you refer to is one of Mo's. Her cowboy baby isn't wearing any boots. Might it be from Phindy?

An honest mistake. :-)I know just the image, have colored it before. Its from DigiDoodle. A naked baby, too cute. Easy to get mixed up cos Mo does have a baby with a cowboy hat wearing a diaper and sucking a bottle, called "Tex". Its similar. Anyway! Although it can't be entered in for the prize, we appreciate you going to the trouble of making a card based on our challenge. So thanks so much for taking the time to play with us at Mo’s. We really appreciate your inspiration.
