Shopping Our Stash #141: 3-2-1

Good morning and welcome to another fun challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week is a 3-2-1 challenge. What the heck is that? Well, you use 3 of something, 2 of something, and 1 of something! Pretty simple idea, but I had such a hard time trying to figure out which somethings to use and how many of each somethings. (Did you understand that at all?!) Anyhoooo, here is my card for your viewing pleasure:

The Somethings: 3 patterned papers (green, rust, brown), 2 stamps, and 1 metal badge thingy (that I found at the park during one of my doggy walks last year. I thought it would look good on card, at some time, in some way. (Hey, that sassy cowgal needs a ranger badge, doesn't she?) And before you say it, I will say it for you: "Badges? We don't need no stinkin badges!" - from the movie Blazing Saddles. (One of my all time favorite movies!) 

Ok, I digress. Come and play along with us at Shopping Our Stash for the 3-2-1 challenge! (Don't forget to let us know your 3-2-1 combo!) Oh, and please stop by my teammates blogs to see what fabulousness they dreamed up! Thanks for stopping by! Stay crafty my friends!

Great job, love the cowgirl and your "find" It was hard to pick 3-2-1 things Great colouring, boy do I need practice, I do find bugaboo digis the best for using my SN markers.

This is so cute! Lovely coloring of the image and that badge simply takes your design to a new level. Nice Job!

Carol L said...

This is really cute with that sassy cowgirl, and I love her badge! The background papers are really fun, and I love that movie too! The campfire is hysterical :) Glad you dodged the S.N.O.W. bullet too! Whew!

Lindsey said...

This girl is perfectly coloured, matched with perfect papers, and possibly the perfect sentiment. Unless you'd just used stinkin' badges... :)

DonnaMundinger said...

EEEK! Adorable! Love the sentiment (Ahh, sooo true!) and I'm another one of those chicks who picks up "possible craft items" from the ground. (Even got my hubby doin' it now. LOL) Oh, BTW, please email me. I lost your original one and can't figure out where to send my GDT card for SOSS. Thanks, chickie! xxD

NOW I NEED COWBOY DOTTIE YES I AM YELLING! OMG, I knew I liked you, but now I LOVE you since Blazing Saddles was mentioned. One of the best movies ever made! I have to tell you: My parents saw it in the theater, and they said they could tell who the Jewish people were in the audience. Seems some of the lines spoken by the "Indians" were spoken in Yiddish, and the people who understood it were laughing out loud. A true classic.

Oh, and about that card? LOVE Dottie and her love of cowboy butts. I must own this. Soon.

PS: LOVE the badge found during a dog walk, but I love it the most because you USED IT ON A CARD!

You win.

The campfire scene is THE best part of that movie! And there are A LOT of excellent parts! LOL!

Audrey Pettit said...

Haha, adorable! This is awesome, Chris! Love that sassy cowgirl and I agree that she definitely needs a ranger badge! ;)
