Howdy!!!!

Hello Everyone,

I really wanted to play in a couple challenges and one ends this evening. So, I got my thoughts together and put something together pretty quickly. The challenge that ends this evening is over at M.A.G Challenge by the Page ~#36 using the Create a Critter cartridge~images on pg 59 only. Nothing like waiting til the last minute...



It's another Stair Step card. I cut the horses at 2 1/2 and 3 1/4 plus the layers. The howdy cut at 2 1/4, star at 3" and the horseshoe at 5 1/4. I embossed the step using a Tim Holtz embossing folder~bricked. I added a little polka dot ribbon and voila, done. Quick, easy and fun:) As I was making this card, I kept thinking of when I was younger (a lot younger) I had a friend who had horses and we use to ride all summer long. I just loved those days...those were the good ol' days, ha?

I am also entering this over at My Craft Spot Challenge #18 Emboss it and Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #10~Anything Summer. There is still plenty of time to play in these challenges....won't you come join us?? Thanks for stopping!

  14. I always love seeing what you have done and you never cease to amaze me with your talent. I just love, love this. I may have to scraplift this idea. My Dad lives in Texas over the winter months (he thinks he is a cowboy), this card would be perfect for him. He is always say Howdy!!

    The colors are so perfect as is the layering. Good luck with ALL your challenges!!
