Cowboy Dreams

Hello.  Welcome.  They say there's a big storm coming.  I rushed around in the garden this morning sorting out the rabbits and the chickens, picking beans and tomatoes and courgettes, and generally tying everything down.  Now, in order to be safe from the storm, I have locked myself in my craft room.  LOL.  May have to be brave and venture out for a cup of tea, but I think this is a good place to wait out a summer storm.  ;-)     

I've been playing with Cowgirl Becky and that lovely tag die again.  Please do say if I am repeating myself too much, but you know how it is??  It's new, it's out, it's fun.  I did enjoy making those little tag cards so here's a western themed one.  

My base card is a folded piece of patterned paper sent by my CCC friend Jutta.  Thanks Jutta.  I cut it using Taylored Expressions Tag Stacklets 1 dies.   I stamped Prima Becky onto PaperArtsy Chatsworth paper and coloured her with Sharpies.  I added a Wink of Stella clear to her collar and the little Cheery Lynn flower which I cut using BAF #3 Embellishments.  The silhouettes are cut using Cheery Lynn Dream Catchers #2 and Fence Rider dies.  The wonky-tonk Howdy was stamped using Anita? woodblock stamps.  I added a black and white striped brad and some stripey wooly stuff to finish off my card.  Actually I suppose these would make great large tags.  Sort of parcel tag/card in one.  Plenty room to write.......
