Charmed, I'm Sure.

Ye-haw it's Friday people!  I tell you these boys of mine are keeping me busy with their crazy sports schedule. How wrong was I when I thought it would get EASIER as they got older. Um, nope!

My cousin is getting married next weekend, and it's going to be a fun one, it's a rustic themed celebration, and I'm working on breaking in my new cowboy boots for a little dancing at the reception.

Breaking in those boots had me inspired to pull out my My Favorite Things Pure Innocence: Cowgirl stamp set, and I paired it with the Die-namics Country Charms.  This fun patterned paper is Farmhouse 6x6 pattern paper was just perfect for what I had in mind.  

By the way, I've been much much better about spending a few minutes to link up the products I'm using down in the bottom of the post. You'll find everything linked up below.

This cutie was stamped with Brilliance Ink, then covered in clear embossing powder and zapped with my heat gun.  Once dried, I watercolored with my Distress Markers.  Her tiny vest was paper pieced with a coordinating scrap of patterned paper. I love that the scale of 6x6 pads are just perfect for paper piecing on cards.

Today's layout is courtesy of this week's Deconstructed Sketch.  The Country Charms Die-namics were just the right size for that circular little embellishment.  

Alright partners, I'm off to my crafty corner to start prepping for the October Release at My Favorite Things.  (sorry for teasing you with the promise of new goodies, but I like to get ready nice and early so that I can share a LOT with all of you during teaser time!)  

Here are the links to the products I'm using today, thanks SO much for stopping by!
