Cowboys and cowgirls - Sweet Stampin' DT

Hello there boys and girls,

Here I am again. Only 8 am, and already my second post for the day!

Now, when I joined the Sweet Stampin' DT last year, it just so happened the timing was perfect, as they were looking for suggestions for themes for this year.
Well, everyone chimed in with their favourites, and of course this means certain people are assigned some blame responsibility for their chosen themes. I know poor Fi was in some hot water recently when the team was very firmly divided on the "doodle" challenge...
But for this week's challenge, I am more than happy to take full responsibility. I know it's considered a little unusual on this side of the pond, but I just so happen to have a thing for cowboys. Hence this weeks theme: Cowboys/girls.

Now, I'm very much spoiled for choice where this topic is concerned, as I have a history of "oops, it fell into my basket" where cowboy themed stuff is concerned, but I decided to use this adorable MilkCoffee image I'd been waiting for an excuse to use for some time now...


Isn't he adorable? The papers are from the Carta Bella "Giddy Up" pad (which I ordered especially all the way from the States last year!), and I printed the sentiment off after making it in word, because my collection of cowboy goodies unfortunately doesn't include sentiment stamps yet...
I added a boot charm and a button as simple embellies, and presto! One cowboy card!

Not, my fellow Sweeties did a fabulous job making some fantastic cowboy and girl projects, so go leave them a little love so they don't hate me for picking this theme! lol.

Naturally, I'm very much looking forward to seeing you all enter some awesome cowboy projects this week, so get creating! ;-)

Yeeehaaaawww!
