Always fabulous - card

I am having the time of my life  playing with the distress markers.   I saw a card in a magazine that gave me the idea for this card.  I am entering it into both Simon Says Monday challenge - we love stamps and Simon Says Wednesday challenge - have a heart.  There are tiny hearts on the critters ears.  And I think I will put it in the Simon Says Work out.  I might be pushing it with all three but the distress markers are new and FUN!

You make me smile card

On the 28th of January at the Simon Says Stamp blog,  Shari Carroll made a card that intrigued me.  So I bought a few Tim Holtz distress markers and started playing.   After a few attempts and a bit of a learning curve I think I am on my way to mastering her technique.  I was on such a high when making this that my 7 year old daughter was a bit worried and kept asking me if I was okay.   So I squealed a bit in excitement.  So?  Anyway I am going to put it in the Simon Says Work it Wednesday and the Simon Says Monday challenge - We love stamps.  I still have a lot to learn and I am totally hanging to splash out an and purchase a few more distress markers.  But I will keep practicing and keep watching the Simon Says blog.

Sweet girl tag

This is for the Simon Says Monday challenge and Simon Says Wednesday challenge.   The Monday challenge is all about cowboys.  I have spent the week thinking of this and all I can think of is the Little House on the Prarie and Love Comes Softly shows.  So I did this tag with them in mind.  A country girl with her chickens.  Really hope it counts! And Wednesday challenge is to use string.   I had to ink the string to make it a bit dirtier.
