Ride 'em Cowboy!

Good evening everyone and I hope that your week has been going well? It's been a lovely sunny day today - but boy, has it been cold! It's definitely a chilly north wind lol! But as I was heading out today I could see across Morecambe Bay to the Lakeland hills and I can say that it is a stunning view when it's a crisp cold day with a blue sky and you can see snow on the hills! I'm just hoping it's still like that when we head up there with the family shortly!

Before I share my card today can I just say a big thank you for all the lovely comments that you leave - they really give a 'warm inside' feeling! And welcome to my new followers too!

Anyway, on to this little card.  Now I have to admit that I've had this stamp for quite a while - and he'd never seen ink! Oh dear - on to the naughty step again!  But now I've coloured him I can see just how cute he is and I've a feeling he'll be inked up again soon.


This little cutie is from LOTV called 'Yee Haa' and he just looks as though he's having a great time! It just reminded me of when my son Jack was little (before the grunting teenager supplanted him...). We got Tilly the Dog as an 8 week old puppy when Jack was 6 - and she soon established herself as the centre of the household and with Lauren as the one who fusses over her the most and Jack as the one for games and playing!  I came home numerous times to find the dog dressed in football shirts, with stickers on, scarves on, etc... So this stamp just seemed to fit the memories lol! 

I've coloured the image with promarkers - and got a few flexmarkers to try too which I'm finding very nice to use!  The backing papers are from NitWit pads at LOTV and the sentiment tags are from LOTV too. The burlap ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and I've added star die cuts from a Sizzix die. The cute wooden star buttons are from CraftyEmblies. The coredinations card has been embossed with a CraftsToo folder and lightly sanded back.
And I've even decorated inside to match lol! 
So hope you like this cute little pair.  I'll go and get the thermals on! 
Back soon,
Kim x
