I was digging in the Wish-RAK bucket looking for something to use for this week's sketch challenge and this bella just jumped out. Does a stamp every remind you of a book? Tell me I'm not the only nerd out there!! It's no secret that I'm a bookworm. I'm currently reading the Cody Gunner series by Karen Kingsbury. I posted a review about the first book here. This stamp totally makes me think of Ali, one of the main characters. She's a champion barrel racer in the rodeo and her best bud is a horse named Ace. I will forever think of that book every time I see this image now. Ok, on to the card info. My bella is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I went over her belt buckle with a Sakura Stardust pen. It's nice and shiny. Check out her red boots (Oh that made me think of another book, but I'll spare y'all the details). She is just too cute. If I had a flat stomach, I would be grinning like a fool, wearing tight jeans and red boots too! Yeah, probably not. I've lived in Texas my whole life and never owned a pair of cowboy boots. Never been to a rodeo either. Hmmm! I pieced my whole card together and then realized I didn't have room for the sentiment. So I squeezed it in at the top. The half circle was cut out using my Coluzzle. Kinda reminds me of a saddle! Thanks for stoppin' by today!!!!

WHAT? You've never been to the rodeo? Girl, we've got to fix that! Next July 4th we MUST go to the PRCA Rodeo in Belton. It's a BLAST!

I've owned three pairs of boots, but haven't worn a pair in probably 11 years or more. Just not really my style.

LOVE the card! You know what they say about girls that wear red ropers, right? :)
