This first card was created for the spelling challenge for the Hope You Can Cling To event at SCS. The letters HYCCT had to be represented is some way on the card. Here is how I used those letters:

H - Heat Embossing
Y - Yee Haw
C - Cowgirl
C - Cowboy Boots
T - Twine

Stamps: Multi Step Cowboy Boots by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, and Whisper White by Stampin' Up
Inks: Versamark, Memento Rich Cocoa, Espresso Truffle, and Lady Bug
Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Embellishment: Rhinestones and Twine

The requirements for this second card were that it have stitching and be humorous. I needed a humorous birthday card so I made this one twice. One for MD and one for me!
