Really hope you will join us & enter your creations by Sunday January 20, 2013 for the chance to win a prize!  

Ok - this turned out better than I anticipated when I was trying to come up with a concept.  Doodle Pantry's "Cowbird" can go either feminine, masculine or even "Metro-sexual" - LOL!  This digi set comes with digi designer paper & five word-art extras... the two seen on this card plus "Cowboy", "Much Obliged" & "Have a 2-steppin' day".  The Yee-haw is perfect for a CELEBRATION of a great accomplishment!  It's definitely versatile!  The boot seen inside is from Stampabilities.

I printed out two copies of the bird and added a sculpted 2nd head and hat on a "Wobbles" spring for dimension   As usual, all the coloring was done with my Copics.

I really like the checker border from Stampington & Co. - it seemed to mimic the DP background.and adds some detail  along with the corner punch called "Ticket Stub" by Memory Makers.  Finished with the button in "Howdy".
This card should be eligible for the following
IMAGES:  The focal image and both sentiments are from  "Cowbird" by Doodle Pantry;  the "Old Boot" image is from Stampabilities.

and always, always, make what amuses you!
