Maricopa is a community just south of Phoenix, AZ partially surrounded by raw desert and American Indian tribal land where wild horses still roam free and John Wayne worked his sprawling Red River Ranch and Cattle Company in bygone days. My husband photographed this horse sculpture near our subdivision’s entrance.

Papertry February Blog Hop Challenge
Our challenge for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop this month: ". . .it's all about being interactive! Show us how you take your
cards to the next level, whether you have received your Movers &
Shakers dies, or you're just inspired to create a pop up or swinging
card without them". My most favorite interactive card for many years now has been this one from a 2005 SCS post here! I just love that it's invitation size card doesn't take up a lot of space, but once opened up, it stands perfectly flat on its base and isn't going to be always falling down or easily knocked over by a breeze or an elbow. That's why it's an awesome get well card for either a hospitalized or home bound patient, child through adult -- sure to bring a smile when they open it and each time they see it sitting up so beautifully thereafter! Of course it's also perfect for any/every other occasion too! Keep it clean & simple for this one though, as you can't close it with a lot of bulky embellishments -- my photo below shows it in its closed position, ready for an A2 envelope!
