Hello.  It's Wednesday and I am still riding shotgun with the gang at Gingersnap Creations.
The month of May Challenge is Wild Wild West and this weeks supply challenge is
to use twine on your card/project.

I made an easel card using a stamp from the Tim Holtz Collection at Stamper's Anonymous.
I stamped the image on a brown speckled piece of paper with distress ink for a worn look.  I distressed the edges and placed the oval inside a cutout of red bandanna paper.  The braided twine trim is from my friend Cathy, and I sure got a lot of mileage out of this gift from her a while back, thanks Cathy.
I tied a boot charm (thanks America) with a piece of twine.  The buttons are Jolee's and I tied them with twine too.  I decorated a jar candle with the same image and some twine and a button.  The star on the top of the jar is from a wind chime that fell apart!!!

This is a picture of the easel card opened.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The stars are from the same set as the cowboy.

Why don't you mosey on over to the Gingersnap Blog and check out the design team inspiration
for this week.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Wednesday.  Happy Trails, Partner.
