Fruitcake Heard the News. I was afraid of this. After I made the official announcement that I was settling down and starting some roots. A few names came to mind that might become a concern for Miss Kelly and I. Sure enough **fruitcake** found out and boy was she hot. She even made a threat. Might have to call in the local sheriff to keep watch for that wagon comin to town. Miss Kelly and I sat down and this morning and talked over coffee. We thought it best to send Fruitcake a card explaining why I am hanging my boots up with Miss Kelly. I sure hope she understands and all. Ofcourse we won't put our return address on the card just incase she tries to come and *visit*. She is a sneaky one I give you that. Had a lot of fun with her.... but that is all behind me now! Best wishes Fruitcake...
hee hee Oh so much fun! Okay I actually used part of the Obituaries from the paper for the TLC Newsworthy challenge today. I sponged some creamy caramel over it for a more dirt like feel. Added a tiny bit of stitching to the corners for the TSC bus challenge this week. its all faux but it works. And no light red this time. hee hee

Obits? You used obituararies? How funny! I can absolutely say that's the last thing I'd ever think to use on a greeting card, but I LOVE it. Come to think of it, they have some pretty cool old-world looking photos there from time-to-time. Hmmmm.... Now you got me thinking.

You used the OBITUARIES???? How clever!! Did you see your faux cowboy's name in there?? The faux ones only last a few weeks and then they are off to whereve the place is they go to cuz they are faux. Oh, yes, I remember - the paper shredder!! So sorry for your loss Miss Kitty; but, you know the real cowboys only have eyes for me, Miss Fruitcake!! I am starting to become concerned though as I am thinkin' you have a mighty fine way of dressin' up our dude. My cowboys may be thinkin' 'bout comin' on over to your ranch for a cowboy makeover - do you think it could be a reality show???? I'm in tears over all this Stacy; not for me, but for you believing this here cowboy is a real. That Patty Buckle has really sent you down a faux road that's for sure. I do have to say, your talent using these cowboys is AWESOME and I hope one day to be able to dress my real cowboys up as well as you have done with the faux! TFS!
