I live in Texas, so it pretty much goes without saying that the Bootiful Occasions stamp set gets a LOT of ink in my stamp studio. Especially that little cowboy boot...or cowgirl boot if you jazz it up with some sparkles and some pink-a-licious fun! I embossed the boot for added shine and popped it up for dimension. Oh, that added layer to the card? Well...I underestimated the size of the sentiment and it didn't fit on the banner as I had originally planned it on my card. So, I added a little layer with the embossed sentiment and some ribbon banners...and a jeweled button...and bling...and silver cord. I guess that is where my card didn't exactly fall into the CAS category anymore. Ugh! Please forgive me Jaydee! You know I try.

One more quick photo before I go. If you are a follower of my blog, you may have already heard about our little foster kitty, Tony Triple Paws. This little guy is about 8 months old and although missing a front leg, is completely FULL of love and energy! Here is a photo I took the other night of him on "Neighborhood Watch" in the front window. He's so cute! :)
