I apologize in advance that this tale will take two pictures to explain.....its been a long year and da' Man has been busy ropin', ridin' and do-in da Man things! It's late and he is headed home to Mrs. West.....he always knows when he is close to home, see-in he has to pass the Bloom's Ranch to get to his property. One for sure way to know this is that as he gets close to Miss Bloom's place lovely wild red flowers grow in patches, she has a green thumb that no one can match. As the smell of the blooms waft through the air he steps a little faster, knowin' he will be home soon!!!
Ah yes,I was inspired by the lady herself as this creation formed in my head, notice not only the blooms, but the Floral Oval die and Cottage Cutz Trees (for those I call her an enabler).
I need to say that no copic's were harmed while making this, BUT my stamp room is a disaster!!!!
Wow Sherry this is AMAZING!!!!!! I love all the texture and the pretty red blooms. Of course Mr. Hearthrob is colored great. I too was enabled by Blooms with the tree and they look so good on her. Super job.

OH MY - GAWGUS!!!! Kush, this is STUNNING!!!! It's taken me a while to take it all in - super, duper de-LISH, Cowgirl!! You not only been enabled (like the rest of us) but you sure know what to do with your"enablin's"!!!!
Da Man, as always, looks fantastic,, especially in that floral oval, but backed by the 'forest', as he heads home, its easy to see you know what to do with those trees to make him stand out!
Love the lace topped with the barbed wire twill - so MANLY looking even the papers look handpicked for this treasure - ahhh, kin you send me over some tissues? I suddenly got a case of the sniffles!!
AWESOME box - nothing like it anywhere else!! You GO, Girl!! You have really outdone yourself!! LYMI

Thee are so many wonderful elements on this wonderful box that I had to sit and look at both pictutres for a while to take them all in. What a creative way to use the trees with the western theme and I love the black lace trim around he top ad te floral oval. The oval reminds me of the old fashioned frames and it is perfect for the "the man". The Bloom's Ranch sign is the perfect finishing touch. I can almost smell the fowers from here in Florida.

I love what you have done to "Da Man", he's as handsome as ever! I love what you did with those trees too, should have ordered that die when I had the chance! Mrs. West is going to all a twitter when her Man gets home!
