Cowboy Birthday

>> Wednesday, January 30, 2013


I had so much fun last night playing with our new Little Cowpoke and our 'almost new' Material Maker stamp!  I just couldn't stop trying different color combo's for both of them!  As I was coloring I took a walk down memory lane and pictured my nephew who received a pair of bright red cowboy boots for Christmas when he was about 4 years old.  Boy, did he love those boots!  He wore them everyday (picture him in the summer wearing shorts and bright red boots :) until he not only wore out that pair, but at least another 2 pairs as well.  It took him a couple of years to start wearing sneakers again. He's 22 now and always in a hoodie.... and I just couldn't resist using the cowboy I colored last night in his bright red boots!

I used our Material Maker stamp to make the 4 different fabric backgrounds, cut them to different sizes and then distressed the edges.  I stamped the white card stock with our Argyle Stamp across the bottom and used our Solid Diamond to quickly fill in the blue and green diamonds.  After stamping the Birthday Wishes in the top left corner and sponging on some green ink, all I had to do was attach everything to a folded black card. (oops - I almost forgot, I stamped the cowboy again using a brown ink pad and cut out just the rope and glued it on top!)
