Dad's Western Boots

The current challenge at Patties Creations Challenge, starting today and ending 15th June, is perfect if you are celebrating Father's Day in June. All you need to do is make sure your card has a masculine feel to is, and is targeted at DAD.

 Here is my card, made up with the Western Boots image available here. This was such a fun image to colour, and I used a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noire pens, together with my trusty white gel pen. The card is a middle-stepper card which I think is much easier to make than a side-stepper, but that's just my opinion of course. I added some punched flowers, a die-cut fence, and a little twine hopefully wrapped to look like a lasoo. So whatever cowboys says .... heehaa, yahoo (no that's a search engine!), yeehah or giddyup, here's my card for one lucky man on Father's Day (one of my son-in-laws!)

DO pop into Patties SHOP, as she has some gorgeous new new images there. When you've made your card, head on over to her BLOG and enter it under Mr Linky to put yourself in the winning line! The challenge closes on the 15th June.


  1. Just so beautiful and creative. Love the step card design.

  2. I've never tried a middle-stepper card, might try it since you said it's easier than the sidestep card. Your coloring of the image is so perfect. I guess the white gel pen that I have should come out of the drawer and get some use!

  3. The coloring of these boots is fantastic! Great masculine card.

  4. WOW Margy! This card came out really nice and I love how you colored my "Western Boots" image. They look real...

  5. Yeah ha...this is one heck of a rootin' tootin' card! Those cowboy boots look good enough to be wearing (although a real cowboy would like them a little more broken in lol). Incredible card Margy...just love all of the fabulous added touches that you put on it. Whoever receives it will really know that they lasso-ed a winner (ok...I'll stop now with the cheezy sayings).

    Hugs ~ Char
