Happy Boot Day

I received this delightful card as a swap at the Stampin’ UP! Convention from Nancy Alverez, who lives in Florida.  Nancy is the up line of my Peep, Susan Fields.  I have to tell you that I had heard a lot of (all good) stories about Nancy and expected to meet a real Southern Lady.  To my surprise, the first thing I heard when I met her was a New York accent.  So instead of meeting the Southern Bell at last, I met a Grand Brooklyn Bell.  I cherish the time we spent together in Utah.  

I made a few changes to the card, one being the button.  I made the button using Simply Pressed Clay tinted with Crumb Cake Reinker.  Once it dried completely, I sponged the rim with Early Express and carefully tied a knot using Linen Thread.  I found (by accident) that leaving the mold in the freezer a little longer than 10 minutes (almost forgot all about it)  works much better with the button molds. 

Loved the way this man card turned out.  Yahoo!
