Thanks to all of you who left comments on my last card, the one with the teddy dragging his diddy Christmas tree behind him. This was my choice of theme for the CCC, a little club some of us are in, where we make our Christmas cards every two weeks and (very hopefully) we don't have so much panic at the end of the year. My theme wasn't everyone's cup of tea but I ended up really liking my card and it's another one ready for Christmas. Yaaaaay!!
Well 'nuff waffling about that, Catherine, my next door neighbour, asked me if I could make a card for her dad's 70th birthday. She mentioned that he really likes line-dancing but I didn't have any l-d digis so asked my teamies on the OSAAT DT if they knew of any - there were a couple of sites who did this sort of image and I bought these two line-dancers from Karen's Doodles. After I had coloured them I had a mojo meltdown and orf she went on her bloomin' hols .......... AGAIN! I eventually got really fed up with myself and found some papers from Tim Holtz in my cupboard - perfect for what I wanted. I also found a digi on t'internet from Colouring Pages for Kids (!) showing a pair of fancy boots and a cowboy hat - yeeehaaa! After all that, this is what I came up with and I am pleased to say that Catherine and her family loved it, as did her dad! Result!
This is only just a slightly sideways view but it does show the little 'boot' charm that I put on there. It's not just the ladeees who can have charms, gentlechaps can have them too!Just a quick shot of the box I made to go with the card.

I shall be off now 'cos we have had a deluge of rain and a lumping great thunderstorm and my head is really banging away like a good 'un!
