True Grit

     This month at For Keepsake in St. Louis I will be teaching a card class featuring a faux leather technique and cards featuring John Wayne and an antique saddle.  I think this is going to be a very popular class, afterall, who's husband, father or brother doesn't love "The Duke"?

     Here are pics of the cards for the upcoming class.  The first is a trifold card banded with an authentique western concho.

     This card opens up into a triptyche of John Wayne featuring a stamp of the Duke portraying Rooster Cogburn from True Grit.

     The second card features a antique western saddle again using the faux leather technique.

    If you are interested in taking part in this class, please contact For Keepsake.  If you are not in the area and would like to purchase a card get please contact me.

  2. I popped over to say thank you for the lovely comment you left on my butterfly card. Whilst here I have really enjoyed looking at your beautiful creations. The underwater scene is fabulous and I love those HM mices! I had to look up what an authentique concho is but hey I learned something new today! Thank you very much, lovely comments always make my day! Karen x
