MMTPT75 Flown Economy Lately!?!

Who doesn't love a good Western!?! Well all the gals at this weeks MotherMark's TeaParty have got their 'boots on' and scooted over there pretty quick - . We're off to Dodge City as Miss Kitty is having a little 'man trouble ' and we aim to bring her a new man - Matt Dillon has taken way too long to make an 'honest woman' of her.

Being partial to the odd western I eagerly got out my images and DP (compliments of sistah Pat Smethers) and started on my journey - well let me ask you - have you travelled economy lately - I don't care how many 'horse power' they say those engines have, but in the economy section, sitting in one of their 'streamlined' seats is equivalent to riding in a rodeo - in my opinion....just like the one on this card - what is with that!?! LOL!

I could not resist using this image - my eyes have been inundated with the sight of the WWW Man and 'cowboy butts' but I have to say that none of them compare with the 'Part'n'er' that I have right here at home with me...so I wasn't even going to go there...instead I just plodded along chalking, distressing and embellishing, slowly making my way to the scene of this week's TeaParty.....I have to tell you,  I nearly tripped myself up with 'that there twine' and hardware - with so many distractions I had to stay really focused with this one!

Now girls....keep your eyes on the task at hand - it is Miss Kitty that we are finding a man for....although personally I thnk Matt Dillon is worth hanging in there for - he is 'da Man'  so honey...a little more 'powder and paint' and maybe a bit more of the 'home cooking' to fatten him up so he can't even get onto his horse and you are half way there!! LOL!

This is also for the Creative Card Crew Challenge for distressing.
Also the ABC Challenge for layering
One Stop Craft Challenge  - Something beginning with B - Bronco of course!
Craftycard Makers - our favourite things - chalks of course - love them for colouring everything and have used them on this image to highlight the horse and swirls!!  They are a very 'kind' medium...love them!!

Thanks for looking and for your encouraging comments - you make my day....oh and my hint of the day - put away a few dollars each week so you can go First Class when you travel - this economy thing is over rated - I certainly never met my 'Mat Dillon' on any flight, but sure did come across plenty of 'Festus Haggin' and 'Drunken Dan' types - skeery!!  LOL!  Keep a look out for me girls - I am on my way - yeehaa!!  God bless you!


  1. WOW! This card is fantastic with its rich details!! I love that image and I'll never part with that stamp set, but I love the western feel you've created with it! The panel on the left looks like worn leather and I love the hardware, charm and twine! Awesome stuff here Linda! TFS!!
