Handsome Cowboy!

Who doesn't love looking at a cowboy? hee hee hee This is a sneak peek of a new set by Mark's Finest Papers which will be released in July. This set is called Southwest Cowboy. The sentiment is from another new set - Flourishes & Frame. Most papers are from MFP too.

The cowboy is stamped using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then I used Stormy Sky distress ink to sponge the edges. The embossed panel used Cuttlebug Paisley folder then dtp using the rich cocoal ink. The barb wire is also from the new set Southwest cowboy, repeatedly stamped onto that panel, then distressed along the edges and direct to paper ink. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the card front using rich cocoa ink.

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful card, Karen! I like the cowboy, barbed wire and embossed paisley. Your card from two days ago is awesome! I love the flower on the peony diecuts and the layout with the suede panel and squares. I saw your before and current pictuers from 5/27---way to go on the weight loss and I LOVE your new hair cut and style! I haven't been on SCS as much lately--yard work and Bill is now retired, so we went to spend 4 days with my Dad. We drove down (220 miles) and went out halibut fishing with him in his boat. Had gorgeous weather and came home with about 50 lbs. of fresh halibut so it was a wonderful trip. Then I spent 6 days at a cabin, accessible only by boat, with my younger sister and her husband. Bill didn't want to go. We dropped shrimp pots everyday and got to view whales, sea otters, glaciers and fishing boats pulling in seine nets. What a pretty place Prince William Sound is!! It's only about l 1/2 hrs. by road, then it was 34 miles to the cabin they had rented. Just wanted to tell you hello and let you know that I still check your blog! Thanks for your friendship! Sue
