Mark's Finest Papers

This mini Post-It holder was made with a cork coaster. I found 2 sets of them at a yard sale. The price tags said they came from Hobby Lobby.

I stamped the images in Memento Ink. The saying, cowboy and barbed wire are from Hey Cowboy. The cracked image is from Background Fun. Both are in the Mark's Finest Papers a Heinricht Company online store. I used that background on this set because it reminds me of the dry cracked soil in the desert. This cowboy looks hot and tired. I think it's a good fit.

I'm not sure if I got the Post-It's from Office Depot. The mini clip came from my daughter. She said she got it in a package from Staples.

This card was easy to make. I started with the background and worked to the top. The sun was masked in and sponged. I stamped the images in Memento Ink. The cracked stamp was off stamped many times to fill the area.

The beads/feathers/leather are from a Paper Craft Pack from Mark's Finest Papers a Heinricht Company. I like the way they add color and softness to the card.

Good Luck on the hop!
