Howdy

A pretty quick post today - that means you won't have to listen to all my bull for a change........I used a couple of stamps from Art Impression, did a little embossing for the background, added a piece of patterned paper, and last but not least, a Gina Marie Howdy/Barbwire die that was a gift to me by a very sweet blogging friend for my birthday.   The images are colored in Copics with some distress inks over the embossed background.

Yee-Haw, Howdy, and I'll be back soon...............

I'll enter this in the challenge at Art Impressions (Humorous) and also take this cute pair over all the way over across the water to Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).



Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

I didn't know you had that picture of Jack and me. LOL Your coloring is perfect and I like that her pants match the side panel to well. Just a super fun card. Hope you are doing OK down there. We are starting to get the heat but no where near what you are used to. Today was and for the rest of the week will be in the high 80's, which is already too ht for me. When I'm outside gardening I follow the shade around the yard. Enjoy the week.
