Howdy Pardner's

Happy Hump Day Bloggers, it's all downhill towards Friday from here! Yippeee!!!

It's time for the new challenge over at 
Here's my DT card

The challengethis week is an 
Here's the inspiration photo

As you can see, It's All About Cowboy's
 Yee Ha!
Use the picture to inspire you in anyway you choose, 
create a project for a dude & upload to the challenge blog!
here's a bit more about my card!
I used the sketch from Kimbee's Creations for my layout

I made a 5"x5" square card 

The image I have used this time is Cactus Kirk,
I coloured him with my promarkers!
He's one cool Dude!
This card is for my Brother in Law who is also a cool dude!
He's a joiner but but he sure ain't no cowboy!!! lol
The papers are from K&Co

The sisal twine is from my stash & the charm arrived in the post 
while I was making my card! Perfect timing!!!

The sentiment was made on my PC,the font is 
Bleeding Cowboys & you can download it free here
As you can see, I distressed all the edges with 
Distress Ink in Fired Brick

I decorated the inside of the card to give it a nice finish.
The little star embellies were punched from cardstock.
I hope you like my card & I hope you can find the time to enter the
challenge at Dude Time Doodles this week!
