singing cowboy

Hi everyone, or maybe I should say Howdy! LOL! I'm using the brand new Singing Cowboy image that was released at Squigglefly this weekend and "howdy" just seems appropriate you know what I mean?

I colored this with Copic markers and chalk. The sentiment was computer generated. I love this image because it's a great one for men and also it can be funny which is what I went for with my inside sentiment

Did you see that ya'll have helped raise almost $100.00 for Lucky's surgery? Thank you so much for all of your help!

Yesterday was a new featured stamper challenge and you know I played along. The card I chose to CASE from the gallery is THIS ONE. Her card was definitely for a baby girl, but I chose to make a baby card that could go for either sex.

Big surprise I picked purple as my color. I used the cute little Bouncing Bundle drawn by Eline Pelinkhoff and paper pieced the baby's onesie. The sentiment was computer generated and then I used some scalloped scissors to cut some of the same designer paper I pieced with around the sentiment. Then I tied a bow with some purple white polka dotted ribbon and stuck it to the card with a glue dot.

Okay, one last thing - today is a brand new challenge at the Squigglefly Blog and I do hope you will go by and see what Vicki has challenge us all to do. I hope to find time to play along!
Have a wonderful day no matter what you do, and thanks for looking!
