Howdy - Fabric card

I found this great trim in the clearance aisle at Joannes, and snapped some up, I knew straightaway that it would look good on a man card. The cowboy hats were from a remnant of fabric from the same store, I covered the back with a glue stick, stuck them onto cardstock, then cut them out when dry.


I cut the feather thingy off another hat, and popped it on with a foam pad for a bit of dimension. The howdy letters are thickers by American Crafts
Two frogs seem to have taken up residence outside my front door. I don't know if they are frogs or toads, because they are orange in colour. They are probably sitting there waiting for the huge spider to come back, you're wasting your time guys, he's dead!
Have a great weekend

I just love your fabric cards - even though the Loralei fabric I got had large prints, I made bigger cards and used Shimmerz paints on the "beach ladies" and sent them to some friends (they loved them, BTW)! I will have to be on the lookout for some different designs even though I LOVE the Loralei fabrics! TFS!

Love the card Enfys- how do you manage to spy all these brilliant fabrics!!
I must look a bit harder each time we come over on holiday & I drag poor hubby around all the Joanns & Micheals I can find in the phone books wherever we are staying!! Mind you I have got him smelling them out sometimes before I do!!
Hope the weather is good there at the moment- have you thought about doing your own crafting service each time you come back over from Florida? Bet you'd have loads of takers!!!
