Bugaboo Cowboy

Good morning everyone, hope everyone has survived the snow lol!!  Candice was so disappointed when the snow didn't stop her from going to school lol!!!  but they have forecast more snow for tonight (Sunday) as I am Scheduling this post for early morning I won't know till I wake up lol!! Well it's Make it Monday time and this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo.. and I was sent this lovely image to play with. I would just like to say 'Thank you' to Jodie who draws these fabulous images, for providing us with such lovely images to use!  Do pop along to her store if you haven't been already as there is something for every occasion!
I have so much enjoyed making this card for Liam (my grandson).. It's been a while since I have really felt like doing any crafting, it's been such an effort... but this card came together so beautifully and took my mind to another place lol!!  The image of this little cowboy is just sooooo cute lol!!




I used scraps out of my scrap box as I love that dotty paper and don't have anymore, must buy another pad as it's so nice for boys cards.  I didn't have enough for the bottom so I used a coordinating sheet out of the pad... I have used two lots of design papers one from 'Wellington' and the other is called 'Oxford'. I inked all the papers, cards and dies with colorbox chalk ink.  I love the circle die it's called 'Picot Edge Circles' by spellbinders and I have put red gem stones in each of the circles. The stars are are a Die-manics die called 'stacking stars' I got it from 'Dies to Die for' - BEWARE when you go on this site, it takes all your money lol!!! Tracy has a fantastic selection of goodies, and is so friendly and always willing to help you with any products you want! Oh! and my letters and number are a Tim Holtz die called 'Carnivale' I love it and have used it so many times.. Last but not least is the lovely image which I coloured with my trusty prisma pencils lol!! and you can find him here.

Pick of the week time Ta Da!! .....

I thought this project was so clever.. the images are only 1" in size, but I love how Rox put them altogether and made this gorgeous  wall hanging... Do pop over to Rox's blog and see how she did it!




That's it from me for today guys... if you have snow, take care and snuggle up in your craft rooms with some lovely hot chocolate, and maybe a little Baily's cream if it's not too early... but you know what they say 'It's five o'clock somewhere in the world'... lol!!
Take Care..
Love and Hugs,
Marjorie

  2. Hi Marjorie

    Everything about this card is awesome!! I think all the crafting genius you have been storing up while you have not been making cards has come together on this one. Your grandson will love it.

    I did not see your POTW this week, so I'm heading on over now to check it out. Looks amazing.

    Hope you have a lovely week (not too much snow).

    Hugs
