Cowgirl Mae

I found another challenge I thought I'd play in... :)

This one is from Some Odd Girl and what appealed to me ever so much... it was not Christmas themed! :) I am all Christmassed out... if that is such a word! I've been making Christmas cards full time since late October... not to mention the occasional Christmas card I've made here and there since last Christmas and before October. I do this every year... I send out about 60 Christmas cards so I work on them all year long and kick it into overdrive about... usually November... sometimes October. Every year I tell myself... this is the year I will be done IN October... hahahaha... tickles my funny bone each time I think that. :-\ Realistically... if I made six a month... give or take... I could do it. This year... I discovered challenges... some with prizes! To remove any doubt read my post from yesterday... I was a winner! :) But since I discovered challenges in December... naturally... the majority of them are Christmas themed. The prizes are all the ammunition this little Texas girl needs! Going back to this particular December Challenge.

I used Cowgirl Mae for this card. What is it about a girl in cowboy boots and a cowboy hat that always draws the eye? Is it just me... I'm from Texas... cowboy country. Nah... I've lived in other states... no matter where I lived... cowboys always drew my attention... I think it's them jeans! ;) lol Well, this isn't a cowboy... it's a cowgirl... AND... there's a sketch involved...

This is the sketch...

This is my card...

I used background paper, card stock and ribbons from my stash. I used Copics markers and EK Success color pencils to add life to the image. Every time I look at her... I can hear her say "Howdy ma'am!"... so I added that as the sentiment... forcing myself to stop at "Howdy"... ;) lol Don't it kinda make you wanna holler out "Yee-haw" too? ;) Thanks for stopping by! Y'all come back now, ya hear!?! lol ;)
