It's a COW girl thing

Hi everyone! This will be my last post for a few days as I'm leaving for Memphis after work today for a visit with Ashley. I won't be able to get any cardmaking done over the weekend and probably not much after I get back home because of a little thing called work. BUT, I will be doing a little shopping in Memphis at some craft stores to add to my blogaversary candy!

Todays card was made purely for a couple of challenges. The Cowgirl Sunday challenge had a recipe of one digi, 2 designer papers, and three embellishments, and the Paper Sundaes challenge was a color challenge of kraft and blue, so I combined them both to make this

(click to enlarge)

I was inspired to use the Cowgirl Up image by the Cowgirl Sundays blog and printed out their logo for my sentiment. My two digital papers are from Stampin' Up! and I made a little rope lasso and silver embossed two horseshoes for my embellishments.

The cow girl is colored with Copic markers of course, and that's it! Be sure to check out Squigglefly's new release tomorrow - they are going to have some fantastic ones. I also have it on good authority that Lynne Stansbery has drawn a very special patriotic Shy Bear image and is going to offer it free! It's not only perfect for the 4th of July, but also for sending to the troops. Have a great day and weekend, and thanks for looking!

Hmmm...Archivers by chance??? (cah-ching!) Teehee :) Surely wish I was going too! I hope you have a fabulous time with Ashley...just make sure you gals behave! I'm going to get to see Elvis for he is definitely alive and well this weekend! It's our annual Elvis Festival and this city lays out the red carpet! Starting tonight, there will be endless rock 'n roll in the streets and his old movies in our Lyric theater (free!). Sunday they are having all-day gospel music! So if y'all get bored, just head 90 mi south! :) Give Ash a hug for me and tell her we need to plan a girl's weekend soon!

I have always loved this's sooo much fun to color, and you did such an awesome job here! Love the sketch you used, and those horseshoes and lasso ROCK! Their logo made the perfect sentiment for your card! Just TOO CUTE! :)

Have a safe trip, GF!
