A Dude

I have a couple of things going on here....first of all, this is one of those adorable images from Dude Time Doodles and I'm going to enter it in their Inspiration Challenge this week.  It's all about cowboys!  Being from Texas, I do love my cowboys for sure!  There's just something about the jingle of their spurs and the swish of the chaps that sets the heart a-flutter!  LOL!  And believe it or not, we actually do see guys (and gals) in town and at the stores with their spurs on!  I usually just leave mine at home!!!



This is also my card for CASEing Marilyn.  The SCS Stamp Addicts group I belong to are CASEing each others cards and up this week is Marilyn.  Marilyn always creates gorgeous cards with beautiful coloring, flowers, and paper.....um...so where did I come up with this dude!!!  Well, back in September she had the cutest card on her blog with a little boy viewing a frog - so I went with her general design and a guy type card. You can see Marilyn's card here. NOTE: If you're having trouble viewing the card, just go to Marilyn's blog and it's from Sept. 6, 2011.  Be sure and check out all her wonderful creations on her blog!

As I said, the image is from Dude Time Doodles.  I sponged in the sky and used some CTMH DP on this and the stars were cut using a die.  I added the burlap behind the image and cut off the selvedge to create his little rope.

I'll also enter this in challenge at For Fun Challenges (Wild Wild West), and Crafting When We Can (One for the Boys).


That's it for today folks.......thanks for stopping by................
