Yee Haw!!!

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. We got just a tiny bit into my trial yesterday but had to continue it for various legal reasons which was frustrating. At least things will calm down a bit here for the next few days. Unfortunately, I still have to do the trial at a later date :) I did manage to get into the craft room last night and I have a couple of "cowgirl" cards to show you today.




For my first card I just had to ink up this adorable Cowgirl Tilda Magnolia stamp from Magnolialicious. I think this is one of my absolute favorite Magnolia images, she is so cute! :) I colored the image with copics and then sponged around the image with SU Pretty in Pink ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from Debbie Mumm (I got it in single sheets at Michael's). For some finishing touches, I added a ribbon, bow, rose from Wild Orchid Crafts, and dew drops. What do you think?




My second card today is a quick card I put together using my Cricut. I used my Paper Doll Dres Up cricut cartridge to cut the doll out at 3 1/2". I used Everday Character Faces stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps to create her face. I also did some doodling using my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. The DP is also from Debbie Mumm. For some finishing touches, I added dew drops, a ribbon and bow, Primas, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, I hoped you enjoyed my cowgirl cards today :) Have a wonderful day and as always, thanks so much for stopping by.

Your cards are adorable. I love the way you used the tilde cowgirl. I did see this one in the store, but was not too sure what to do with it. Great job with the Cricut Paper dolls cartridge. I don't have that one as I thought that only having boys, I wouldn't get much use out of it. TFS
