This is my lo for the SEPTEMBER MONTHLY SKETCH CHALLENGE, Sketch #3. The sketch and challenge can be found here: http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/1590761/
Also for the September Hoarders Challenge. Several REALLY old items from my stash. Sticky Stitches used as the flower stems. The diecut alphas for "KS", I inked them, matted them, stitched them (everythinged them! LOL) ...I think those are from a kit I bought many years ago. I don't even know what those metal things are called that I put on the "KS" alphas and I was surprised to find them in my stash (when I was looking for something I thought I had, but couldn't find), so I have no idea just how many years I've had them. The metal button was another surprise find (it was in the same little drawer as the other metal thingies...maybe they are from the same kit, since I didn't remember having them, either. ) The twisted white twine I've had forever, I was actually hoping to use a piece of suede looking ribbon that was on the same card as this, but the adhesive pulled off the "suede" when I tried to unwrap it. (big sigh) The tag is from some French themed kit I bought many years ago, but I thought it looked kind of like a stirrup, so I used it on here. LOL The alphas I used for "cowboy" are at least 9 years old, I traced around them with brown and black pens/markers.
