Howdy Folks

Well y'all just wander on up and take a look at this here card :) The new TAC catty is about to come out and I can't wait to see what they have added. I decided to use some of the first sets I bought out of the 06-07 catty for this card.

My main image and sentiment are from a TAC set called Howdy. The little cowboys in that set crack me up. I used my SU markers to color my image in. Do you like how I added little cactus needles? I also had to give him a shiny belt buckle. So I colored that in with a So Saffron marker and then went over it with my Sakura Stardust pen. I used the 3rd ring on my circle Coluzzle and cut him out. Then I took a piece of Ballet Blue cs and used the 4th ring on the Coluzzle to cut out a bigger circle. I glued my image on that and took a Night of Navy marker and doodled some faux stitches. Real Red cs is punched using my Giga Scallop Circle punch. I then took my paper piercer and punched some tiny holes in the middle of each scallop.

My base is a piece of 5 x 4 1/4 So Saffron cs. I took a piece of Ballet Blue and stamped it using another set by TAC called Paisley Rockz. I love how the paisley image matched the scallop circle. My Close to Cocoa cs is stamped with the Linen background and I tied a ribbon (Joanns) around it.

To finish it off, I stamped my sentiment on Real Red cs and took my Word Window Punch(SU) and simply punched out a little tag for the corner.

Fun card! Makes me wanna sing "all my ex's live in Texas..." Don't know why, but I guess since you're from Texas and it's a cowboy, that's what I think of! This card is too cool!
