Card 2 - Post 7

I'm trying to make and send a card every week to a special fella in San Antonio who needs some hugs right now. In my stamping circles, a greeting card is sometimes described as "a hug with a fold in the middle." That's how I choose to think of my card creations. This particular card is not anything fancy; I've been told that the recipient really likes cowboy images, and I found a cowboy stamp in my stash for last week's card. I didn't have another such image that reached out and spoke to me, but I did find a cougar, a critter that a cowboy might encounter on a ride (if he was in the right part of the country.) I hope my new friend likes this one. If you'd like to send a card, too, please check out the following blog post and follow the directions to obtain his address.

Hey, thanks for the comments. You are right, there is something about this country. I love Texas and we hope, God willing, to go back - but this is growing on me after 13 years.
I love the card.

Beautiful card! I am impressed.
I have never tried stamping. I quilt, when I have the time.
Just wanted to stop by and say howdy.
