I shoulda been a Cowgirl!

Don't we all have days when we wish things would go a little easier on us?  I am a Chef, living with one of the fussiest eaters alive.  There are days in my kitchen when I wish I were anywhere else but.  If I were a Cowgirl, it would be steak and beans at every meal.. forget the biscuits.  I was told in culinary school I have "hot hands" - not good for pastry, or biscuits.

Back to my kitchen... I am addicted to pasta.  I collect it.  Like many of us you collect stamps.  For the current Curtain Call challenge, BOW TIE, this little noodle just called to my inner Cowgirl heart. Not quite a 'string tie' but still...


 

Front and inside sentiment all mine!

Cowboy hat fussy cut from All About Boys DCWV
 
One more, before I head out to the 'range' - get it?  Tag You're It #3! + CAS(E) this Sketch #87 = a perfect match!  This time a tag which should be attached to a bottle of something, gifted to a best friend who's in need of a shoulder... phew!

What a FUN post!
a) I didn't know you were a chef,
b) I think you would make a cool cowgirl!
LOVE that you used real pasta on your card and that you flipped the sketch for your tag.
And that is one cool teapot!
