We have a wonderful New Years Challenge for you at Digi Doodle Shop's Best, it's "New Beginnings". That could be interpreted in many ways.. a new marriage, a new baby, a new job, a new car. Life offers us all so many new beginnings and what's more precious than new life!!
I have a 15 month old grandson so this image just demanded to be inked. It also made me and my husband very nostaligic as one of our sons used to do this exact thing with my husbands cowboy boots, although I do believe he was dressed..lol.
You know that quote "There's no mistakes in cardmaking" ? Whoever said that is a big fat liar.. or maybe we should actually say there are a ton of "do overs". (I can smile about it now) I spent an inordinate amount of time laying out the fontage above the belt. I got the photo all edited, watermark added, uploaded to our DT group, started my post and it wasn't until I typed the word "Sheriff" that I realized I had misspelled it (had two r's)!! But, like I said.. I can smile about it now, well almost!
Here's a close up of that cute lil' hiney:
The papers were a "texture" package download that I found on DevianArt for free. I don't have a link but I am sure if you are looking for something similar just google wood texture free images. The font I used is called Bikerbones and you can download it for free here. For the belt buckle I glued regular Reynolds Wrap to white cardstock. I used my squeegee (spelling?) from my Cricut tool kit to smooth out all the bubbles and let it dry really good. Then I just cut the shape with one of my Cuttlebug dies.
I hope you've taken the time to swing by the rest of DT's blogs. They are wonderful bunch of ladies with amazing talents!! I am sure you will find many beautiful cards and projects to inspire you!
