"The Cowboy Way Of Life"

Good Afternoon Everyone! Today I have a new creation to share with you, one that is in a completely different direction for me. Recently my brother, Randy has opened Rocky Run Saddle Tack & Trailer in Gleason, Wisconsin. He and his wife, Donna have a large selections of saddles, tack, and other related items! If you are a horse enthusiast and are in need of anything, feel free to contact Randy or Donna Ryan via Email or Phone: 715-873-4582. (They are willing to ship items via UPS, just contact them for details!) Now you understand the reason for me trying something new! LOL! 
I created this wonderful cowboy card using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I really enjoy creating with their wonderful sketches, they help me to bring my thoughts together and I always end up with an awesome card! I will be submitting this card into their challenge #82. Don't despair as you have plenty of time to submit your own creation using this sketch. The close date and time is Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 8pm CST.
You're most likely wondering where I found such a wonderful cowboy image... Well I will tell you... at the Digi Doodle Shop. Judy and her Mother are the artists behind all of these wonderful digi stamps! I am sure you will find something that you love and there customer service is top notch! Also, currently they are having a 50% sale for the month of December! You still have another day to take advantage of this sale! I will be submitting this card to their store challenge blog, Digi Doodle Shop's Best. The theme of challenge #39 is "Anything Goes". The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday, January 5, 2011. So you will have plenty of time to shop their sale and submit your creation! I hope you decide to come and join in on the fun!

Sara, it is always such a pleasure to have you stop by my blog. I love reading your wonderful comments.

Wow, your coloring of this card is awesome. All of the elements of the image just pop off the page. I don't have a lot of call for cowboys but, I love this image. I am beginning to think that I should take some of the classes that you are taking.
