Hitch your wagon to a star - JUGS #46
Mornin', y'all :) Today's card is for a cause--to let you know about a fund raiser called Ethan's Rodeo. Ethan lost his fight with neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer responsible for approximately 15% of all childhood cancer deaths and the rodeo raises funds for neuroblastoma research. Please check the website for all the details. My CTD sistah, Kristin, is also on the JUGS team, which is helping to promote this event with a challenge, so head on over and check them out and join in!
So, here's my wild west card :) Lucky for me I just got this new Cosmo Cricket 6 x 6 pad called Wanted, otherwise I had nothing even remotely relevant to anything Western. I thought this sentiment, from MFT's Clearly Sentimental About Emerson, fit the paper and theme just fine. It's stamped on a Fossil card stock panel stamped and cut with the Framed Greetings set. Some twine, a few buttons, and some die cut stars finish it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Now don't forget to stop by the JUGS blog and see what they have for you.
