A Monday Howdy!

It's hard to believe it's a new week. I keep blinking and the days flash past. I had a few minutes to stamp today...not nearly long enough. I decided to pull out some more paper from CHA *wink* and go with the theme. The Moxxie booth was right across from the CHF booth and as they were tearing down I asked if I could have some of their discards. They actually made me a deal that if I helped take the paper down I could have it...so you KNOW I was busy!

I just adore this sweet cowboy stamp by Lizzie Anne. To date I have used him once but not because I haven't wanted to but because I have been too busy to stamp with him. How sad is that?

I used Beate's FAB sketch for my card and I am pleased with how it turned out. Please note his pants and hat have been paper pieced using scraps from the patterned paper. In addition, the strip of barbed wire with the howdy stamped on it is also a scrap! His hat has been raised using a pop dot.
