Time for something non-Christmas!

Hi all,

I dunno about you guys, but I'm starting to get a little fed up of the festive stuff, so have decided to change it up a little!

Having recently had the opportunity to do a little shopping at Bunny Zoe's, I ordered myself this Kenny K stamp. (Funnily enough, I can't find it in the shop any more... Maybe I got one of the last ones?)
I went for this one as not only does it represent a complete break from this time of year, but as it turns out, I also have precious few stamps suitable for adult men. And then there's the fact that I have a fondness for the whole cowboy theme ;-)

The beeyouteeful papers are all the way from the Americas, and can be found in the Carta Bella "Giddy Up" pad. She was of course coloured with my Promarkers, and I added a button, ribbon and a twine "lasso". The sentiment is from a Lillibet sentiment stamp pack.

In other news, The Make-A-Wish Foundation sent me my fundraising package (with posters, badges and a collection tin), which arrived today, so I'm all set to go raise some money at my son's school fair a week tomorrow! I'll be trying to sell cards to raise money for them, so wish me luck!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs - For the Men in your life
Kaboodle Doodles - Buttons and Twine
Cards for Men - Anything goes
Kenny K's Krafty Krew - Anything goes

Hope you all have a fabulous day. And if you're going to be at the LOTV shop tomorrow... See you there! :-)

Definitely "non-Christmas", having said that I'm sure lots of men out there would love her in their stocking on the big day!! Great card! Love the papers and the rope lasso, I'm sure she must be jolly cold though!! Have a good spend at LOTV!! xx
