Ride Em Cowboy! OSAAT #233

Yee Haw!  Don't you just love a good rodeo!  The Houston Rodeo is just winding up this weekend. I don't actually go, but I do see some of the highlights on the news. Every night during the rodeo part, a major airline gives away 2 tickets to anywhere in the US to one cowboy they call the High Flying Cowboy. That's the one who takes a really horrible tumble off of a bull during the bull riding contest. Some of those guys really get beat up. What a way to earn a living! While I was trying to decide what to do with this cute image, the idea just came to me so I made it look like the cowboy was roping that horse. I like the way it turned out. Our them for this fortnight is Anything Goes With Nature!

Materials Used:
  • Image - Ken Benner - Cowboy Twirling a Lariat; Stampin Up Wanted
  • Sentiment - Found on the Internet and changed the font and added color
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Baja Breeze; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Western Sky
  • Ink - Stampin Up Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories - Twine and cardboard star from my stash; corner punch

We are sponsored of course by our own Stitchy Bear Outlet Store and the prize package for the one randomly picked winner is the March Prize Pack. Lots of fun goodies.
