A Cowboy Christmas - Christmas Card Challenge

Well, here I am again! I've now got a backlog of cards that I've made that I haven't posted so I'm going to post this one tonight and then I'll post a couple tomorrow night and then a couple more on Tuesday. I'll be working on school work starting tomorrow so no time to do more crafting until the end of the week.

I have a stack of images for Christmas sitting on my table. These are the second image that I printed off. Whenever I print an image, I usually will print two just in case something happens to the first one which means I get a lot of unused seconds. I decided to keep the Christmas ones on my desk so that I'll have them handy. I'm going to try to do the Christmas Card Challenge this year so I can have enough cards made by the time Christmas rolls around again. This one is for January and the theme is "use the letter C." I have three ready to post. The thing is, I colored these while I was recuperating from Shingles and I didn't  keep track of the colors I was using or where I got the image.
The cardstock is Stampin Up Real Red and Soft Suede. Not sure about the dp. I used my Copic markers to color the image which was cut using the Nestabilities circle die and the scallop circle die. The sentiment is from a retired SU stamp set and cut out with the 1 1/4" punch layered onto a circle of Soft Suede cut with a 1 1/2" punch. It was kind of tricky to get the stripe of Real Red lined up on the diagonal like it is, but I finally figured it out.

Hope you are having a great weekend. So sorry to see if come to a close and back to work tomorrow.
