Well, howdy, y'all!


I have no idea what got into me when I was making this card for Di Hickman's sketch blog. I grabbed my pack of scraps from Daisy D's French Market collection that I used so much of last fall and just went to town. Something about DD's rustic, distressed finishes feels right under my hands. and the barn board and roosters seemed like a natural fit with fall in the air. The twine knotted on the button and "Howdy" sentiment seemed to tie it all together. I was concerned that I would have to cover up my rooster friend with a flower or other embellishment, so I decided that something of the ghost variety would work best. Then I struggled to find a way to attach them without stapling or adding brads. Stickles to the rescue! It's a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, and ALL me.
