Saddling Up…

Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway. ~ John Wayne

One of my good friends and her husband coach the rodeo team at our local college. We graduated 15 seniors from the team this past weekend. This is a very quick & easy card that I made for each of the two girls that I’m closer to. They are sweet girls (great athletes), and it’s been so fun to get to know them and live that college life once again, vicariously, of course. Some things just don’t change. LOL.

I had been itching to use this Waltzingmouse set, Back in the Saddle. The stamps just showed up in my mailbox one day with a super sweet note. The sender knows me well, and I was grateful for the thoughtful gift. :) The horse image is from a Stamper’s Anonymous set by Tim Holtz, Wild West. Since my card was for sweet girls, I chose to place the sentiment right over the top of the cowboy on the bucking horse. The paper is My Mind’s Eye, Lost and Found collection.

Have a great afternoon!
