Cowboy Birthday


This is a birthday card for one of the guys in the family. I'm still really not sure if I like it or not though. It just really looked alot better in my mind!

I used Cherry Cobbler, Kraft, and Very Vanilla card stock. The image is Yeehaw from CTMH. Nothing special here but I thought it was a very different and fun type layout. The sketch is from a site called Card Positioning Systems. It's not exactly like the sketch but it's my "take" on it anyway. The theme is for the Stamps R Us Challenge blog - masculine type project.

Well, I'm going to be leaving town again tomorrow and will be back on Saturday. Going to see my daughter and son-in-law (and of course, the two granddaughters). Other than the long, long, trip it should be fun.
Thanks for stopping by..................

I like it, the twine is perfect for the bucking bronco! I like the brads, just like the TX star :) Have an awesome time with the family.

I think this is very cool. I like the choice of red with the cowboy image and I especially like the twine for the three lines on the sketch. It's one I plan to try as soon as I have a chance.

Have a fun trip.
