Happy Monday

>> Monday, January 14, 2013

Last Monday when I posted we had beautiful snow on ground. Well after the unseasonably warm weather and rain this weekend, there's no snow anywhere!! I must admit it was nice to be able to walk the dog without having to bundle up, but I do miss the beautiful snow! Oh well, I'm sure it will be back soon enough!!

This week DRS Designs is the sponsor at Craft Your Passion and the theme is Gone Country.I created a couple of cards in honor of this challenge. The first card features our new Saddle Up Cowboy. Isn't he just adorable?!!

The card base is dark green with a layer of white card stock that was stamped in Handsome Hunter and Ballet Blue with the Woven Plaid stamp, my favorite plaid. I love the look it creates!! On top of this, I added a strip of blue that was punched on one side with a star border. On top of this is a white layer stamped with the Interlocking Star background in Ballet Blue. The main image, Saddle Up Cowboy was stamped with Memento Black on white, colored with Copics, die cut and layered on green and blue card stock. Some blue buttons with green bakers twine were added to finish the look. Hope you like it!

My second card features the Cowboy Snowman. I love snowmen and just couldn't resist creating another card!!

I started by stamping the Cowboy Snowman on white card stock with Memento black ink. After coloring him with Copics, the panel was attached to the kraft card base. After embossing a piece of real red card stock with the CB snowflake folder, I die cut a labels 8 out of the middle. Some brown bakers twine and a button were added before attaching it to the card base. 

So we have two challenges for you this week: the Craft Your Passion Gone Country and DRS Designs own  challenge to use buttons on your card. We'd love to have you join us in one or both of these challenges this week. You could be the winner of some new DRS Designs stamps!

Thanks for stopping by. 

Until next time,
