It's the weekend ..... and the end of VC for this year ....

This has been a busy week - not sure if I made headway in any areas I needed to, but it seemed like I was coming and going all week.  So that means no posts during the week - sorry.  Next week looks more relaxed (at this point anyway) so will try to get pix of some cards and get them on here!  Monday should be lots of fun - I am driving 4 hours to get together with some of my classmates for lunch - and we will kinda plan our next class reunion.  

Tonight is our final party for VC_Rocks this year - boo hoo .... hope I don't lose contact with all my good friends there while we are on hiatus.  But as they say, all good things must come to an end - at least for a while.   

We just got home from a little trip to the "city" ... did some shopping, ate lunch and then a yummy blizzard at DQ - I know, shame on me, but it was sooo good.  And I didn't even finish it so I have some for later.  Last night we had a yummy fish dinner out with some very good friends and some great conversations.  Some weeks we sure eat out a LOT!!  

Today's card was first made by me some time ago - I love this and keep making more ... when Larry needs a card, he often chooses this one, so that means I need to make more.  At one time, I had 14 of them made ahead - now I am down to two.  I can't remember where I got this idea - it was quite a few years ago, and my memory is not what it used to be .... but I do love it!  If it was you, please let me know - I do like to give credit when possible.  I am such a CASE'r.   It uses a retired stamp set - Cowboy Kid.  It takes a while to make because the swinging doors are stamped with white craft ink - and we all know that takes some time to dry completely.  I do a full sheet of Chocolate Chip with the white craft ink and (I think) Sanded background stamp.  Can't get to my stamp cave because Larry is working in the hallway and I can't get thru.  Not sure if you can see it, but the little cowboy is holding his lasso (natural hemp twine).  

Hope you like this card - like I said, it is a fave with my hubby and everyone that gets one.  Guess I had better get a bunch more made and soon - maybe tomorrow, since there is no NASCAR cup race .... and I will try to use some of my newer (and current) stamps in my next posts, but I just had to share this one today.

Hugs to all, and may God Bless you muchly, Sassy Shirley
