CFC #54 ~ Love You Dad!

Hello! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Ours was pretty low key with the weather a hot humid 91... ICK!!! So I spent a little time crafting in the cool air-conditioning *wink*. I saw that CAS-ual Fridays was having a masculine card using designer paper challenge this week...count me in!

I spotted this fun western themed paper by October Afternoon a while back and knew it would go very well with my rootin tootin cowboy image by A Muse. My rick rack border (PTI) is also OA paper. I stamped  my cowboy on a Spellbinders labels 10 die cut and colored him with  markers and colored pencils. I added two of the sentiments from my PTI tiny tags stamp set. How do you like the rope treatment? I saved these from tags that were on our set of outdoor cushions that we bought for our wicker furniture at Pier One. I knew they would come in handy and I've already used them 3 or 4 times! I think they add a fun touch to my western themed cards. Finally a small stick on star from Hobby Lobby. My dad enjoys watching westerns, even old Bonanza reruns. So I think he'll enjoy this Father's Day card!


Have a delightful day! ~Lisa

We had to break out the a/c at our place this weekend, too! Saturday was hot and sticky, but the rest of the weekend wasn't so bad. But everything is covered in green-yellow pin pollen! Had to keep the windows closed even when it was beautiful outside. We need a good rain!!

Oops, sorry to rant on about that--didn't mean to! Your howdy-licious cowboy card is just fabulous! I love that gray bandanna-ish paper, so perfect for your design. This makes a great Father's Day card!!

This is so fab Lisa! I have never used the TinynTags stamps on anything other that the tiny tags! I thought they would look too small, but they don't! They look wonderful here, especially with this sweet image!
