Howdy Cowgirl

As this is my 2nd post today
*Please scroll down for the Creative Craft World challenge, or click here* 

Hello again!

I'm afraid my posts have been a little erratic lately, it's been a while since I had two in one day!

I have some exciting news to share today :)
A while ago the lovely Tracey over at Sweet Stampin' asked if I would like a months GDT spot
on the challenge blog and I was delighted to accept!
There are some fabulous challenges coming up and this weeks is no exception...

The theme is to 'use your favourite stamp'.

After much deliberation I've come to the conclusion ~  I've got too many favourites....
but I did narrow it down to Wryn and her little horse.


The background papers are DCWV ~ Green stack and I layered them on a 6x6" card blank.
I coloured the image with Copics and wrote down the colours but now I can't find the scrap of paper I wrote it on...
The buttons are from 'bag o buttons and the divine twine is from here.
 I inked the edge of the oval with tumbled glass distress ink.


I arranged the sentiment on the curve of the oval using the Cameo and after printing, cut it out by hand.
The font is 'Oleo'


Why not take a minute to ink up your favourite stamp and upload your creation here!

Thanks again for visiting
and I hope you have a great holiday weekend :)

I'll be back during the week with a some cards, layouts and a little mini book.
