I'm so excited to announce that I'm a digi Guest Designer for Firecracker Designs by Pamela for the month of October!!! What a wonderful store Pamela has. Check it out and you'll see all the digital images, plus red rubber and clear stamps. There's a big sale going on right now as the store will be closing soon (sadly), so pop over there and take a look. Also, go take a look at Pamela's blog! Fantastic!
This little cowboy image, star, and the "howdy" sentiment are from the Cowboy Roundup set at Firecracker Designs. The set has several little cowboy images and sentiments. I used some Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla card stock. The patterned paper is from CTMH. I colored this little guy with SU markers and a couple of Copics. After completing the card, layering, piercing, etc....I felt it just needed a little something extra. That's when I remembered I had some burlap left over from using in a deer blind! So I frayed part of it and also added that to give it a "rustic" look.
Just a very short story here about the "howdy" part. When my son first started college at Texas A & M University we made a trip to visit. As we walked around the campus and passed students, they all said "howdy"! Not hi, hello, or anything except "howdy"! My son greeted everybody the same way. We found out that was one of the traditions of the school. By the time we left there I thought if I ever heard another person say "howdy" in my life, I would just strangle them!!! So before anyone asks.....no, we do not all greet each other with "howdy" here in Texas!
Thanks for stopping by.................
