Little Buckaroo

I am back with the sweet little cowboy from the Weiman Wranglers stamp set available from Pink Cat Studios (read my last 2 posts for more details). This card is for the challenge Heather is sponsoring on her blog with the Wranglers stamp set, head over Heather's Heavinly Stampations to check it out. I can not say enough how great it is that everyone is joining together. I am still relatively new to reading other's blogs, never mind writing my own, participating in challenges and even posting to galleries. I wish I had started sooner because the crafting community is the BEST and I love it all!!

Now back to the card :>) I know that the Digi stamp has the balloon, but my mind went right to cowboys and ropes! Love the fact that it is so easy with a digi to erase the balloon before I print out the image. I kept the layout simple because the roping on the outside is about to take over!
Supplies: SU Kraft CS, SU retired DP, denim - SU Ballet Blue CS, Brocade Blue and Night of Navy Ink, plus Color Box white pigment ink, and a ton of twine!

I made the faux denim paper following instructions over at SCS; it is this week's technique challenge and denim fits in perfectly with my buckaroo. Yes, I admit, this is the first time I have taken part in any of the SCS challenges - you would never know that I have been checking out the galleries for ideas for years. There is also lots of paper piecing on this one because I had the perfect paper for clothes - just love tying it all together {LOL}!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend! Please, please, please no rain in the northeast. I have personally had enough of the rain and this is coming from someone who is happy to stay inside and craft!! The weather is affecting taking pics of my projects {LOL}. Plus, my children love being outside!
