Hope You're Back in the Saddle Real Soon...

I love, love, love Texas!  As the bumper sticker says, "I'm not from Texas but I got here as soon as I could...".  I saw this cute boot on the Just Because Cards cartridge and wanted to make a shaped card with it.  So, I got out my trusted Gypsy and got to work..

I used the boot shadow layer and set it at 5".  The actual card is not really big (approx. 5" x 3") and might make a great card to tie on a gift bag.

Loving this Texas themed stamp set by Erin Lee Creative - so cute!

Here are both versions of the card - the pink one was for my other blog, Everyday Cricut.  If you haven't been over to Everyday Cricut and you love the Cricut and are looking for (almost) daily inspiration, check it out HERE!

I'm working on getting the Gypsy file up soon - having some 4shared issues...

Have a great day!

  50. This is great, wondering if the file is available

  51. I'd love to get the file for this card, if it's possible?


  52. Chris Weidman (9-0-0)
    With his two round dismantling of Mark Munoz, Weidman made a case for any title shot.
    But with Munoz being his first advanced level opponent another fight seems much
    more likely. Recent title contenders Chael Sonnen or Vitor Belfort could prove to
    get the very best test to the rising Weidman. A conquer either opponent could seal the deal for the title shot.

    Rashad Evans (17-2-1)
    Coming off a loss of profits to current champion Jon Jones, Rashad
    has hinted at dropping to middleweight to challenge Silva.
    With his knockout power and athleticism, he could be
    formidable opponent to challenge to the belt. With wins
    over Rampage Jackson, Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Tito Ortiz,
    and Phil Davis anchoring his resume, however be a welcomed addition for the middleweight roster.

    Vitor Belfort (21-9-0)
    After pulling out of UFC 147 having a hand injury and due
    return later this season, Belfort needs a big fight to break ahead of the
    pack. A conquer Sonnen or Weidman would throw him into
    a rematch with Silva and maybe avenge his front kick knockout
    loss to the champ next year
    Alan Belcher (18-6-0)
    After an unexpected TKO victory over Brazilian leg lock specialist Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FOX 3, Belcher has shot in the title
    picture. With just one loss in his last 5 fights Belcher is perfect for
    ready for that next challenge. Maybe a fight with Stann, Bisping or Boetsch ought to be next prior to taking a go at a top 3 opponent.

    Hector Lombard (31-2-1-1) or Tim Boetsch (15-4-0)
    If long time Bellator Middleweight champion
    Lombard debuts with a dominant enlighten Boetsch
    at UFC 149, as outlined by rumors he'll most probably obtain the next shot?

    But a subpar performance could move another contender before him.
    Boetsch is on its way of your hard fought third round TKO over Yushin Okami at UFC 144.
    A conquer Lombard would raise his stock considerably although
    not a lot regarding warrant a title shot. Perhaps a fight while using winner of Bisping and Stann could
    be the next step barring they do not get a title shot.

    Michael Bisping (22-4-0) or Brian Stann (12-4-0)
    With a conquer Stann at UFC 152, Bisping could receive his long awaited title shot provided Lombard fails in their debut
    and Rashad Evans doesn't drop down. His only discrepancies are losses to recent contender Chael Sonnen, former Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans,
    Dan Henderson, and Wanderlei Silva. Originally scheduled to welcome Hector Lombard on the UFC, Stann brought out with the
    fight with the injury. Now scheduled to fight Bisping, a conquer The Count could put
    Stann right back in to the title picture. Contenders like Chris Weidman, Vitor Belfort, or possibly a rematch with Chael Sonnen
    George St. Pierre (22-2-0)
    A long requested super fight between Silva and St. Pierre could be huge.
    But with St. Pierre stating the truth that however not progress up in weight
    until the end of his career and Anderson being 37 years old this
    fight seems unlikely.
