KS Monday – Oct 25th, 2010



Happy Monday everyone~

It’s time for Kitchen Sink Monday, y’all!! lol. As you see, I made another Cowboy theme card … with some Holiday twist ;)


My card today was inspired by my local friends who have the Texas Longhorns wall deco and they decorate the horns with different holiday themes every year. For example, small egg garland for Easter, spiders & spider web for Halloween…and Christmas lights for Christmas, lol.  Since the Christmas is on its way sooner than we think, I decided to decorate KSS Multi Step Texas Longhorns with the smallest light from Multi Step Christmas Lights :):) I hope it makes y’all smile, lol.


The garlands I created on the card base was used the small pine branch from Multi Step Winter Cardinals and the second smallest lights from Multi Step Christmas Lights. The sentiment was used from Multi Step Cowboy Hat.



These are the steps I did for each image (All inks are Memento):

(Texas Longhorns) 4th – paris dusk, 3rd – rich cocoa, 2nd – potter’s clay, 1st – desert sand

(Pine Branches) 4th – rich cocoa, 2nd – cottage ivy, 1st – bamboo leaves, 3rd– rich cocoa  tip: I used Step 1 with bamboo leaves and filled the spaces of the branches.

(Christmas Lights) lady bug, cottage ivy, cantaloupe

(Sentiment) rhubarb stalk, rich cocoa
