Cowgirl Becky

Hello friends!  I wasn't sure I would get this tag posted before our Stock Show and Rodeo closed this weekend.  February has been a crazy month for me, with the cold, cold weather, holidays, and an unexpected death in the family, I haven't been able to post any goodies this month.  I have been working on a few, but time just seems to slip away from me before I get them posted. Hopefully, I am back on track, and it will be much easier to post projects and card ideas in the future.

Today's card is a tag front using one of the New Julie Nutting Doll Stamps from Prima. I love, love, love these doll stamps, and "Becky" (the cowgirl) really spoke to me!  Ha Ha, I made a funny. . . . "spoke" . . . . . wagon wheel. . . . . Yee Ha!  The wagon wheel stamp is a new one from Deep Red Clingstamps, made in the USA.  Living here in Texas, I love all types of stamps that portray western life. I also picked up a wonderful clear set from My Favorite Things, called "Howdy"!  From this set, I used the star circle with dots as a hub cap for the wagon wheel, and the lasso rope that "Becky" is holding. The tiny random stars are a stamp from Deadbeat Designs, and the large word "hello" is from Winnie & Walter.  The background tag is one of the New tags from Prima, the Aquarelle Tag Pad which consists of beautiful pastel colors.

The Large Tag Pads from Prima are so wonderful, not only are they large enough to highlight the Julie Nutting Doll Stamps, they also give you lots of room for other mixed-media techniques. The other New Julie Nutting stamp I recently purchased is the doll stamp called "Mindy".  Of course, you may notice the connection of why I had to purchase that one, because my name is Mindy, and I will highlight her on a new tag early this coming week.

With the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo coming to a close this weekend here at home, and the Winter Olympic Games closing also,  I will probably be glued to the TV a few more days. (I also love the winter Olympic sports!)  We have also been forewarned there is another Arctic Front moving south from the North Pole, that should arrive here in So. Texas midweek.  So, I have a few more outdoor projects to tend to before the cold weather hits us again. Stay warm and safe, and have a pleasant rest of the weekend.  I will visit with you again soon.


  1. Becky is adorable! Very clever to use the star on the the play on words. Becky looks very Texas rodeo, she could even go to the dance hall later. Glad you are back posting!

  2. This is gorgeous, Mindy!! I love Becky!! She's fabulous!! I've ordered some of the new stamps but don't have them yet :( The design of the tag is so awesome!! I'm so sorry about the death in your family. Hope you are doing well my friend. Have a great evening :)
