Hubby needs a birthday card for one of his guys at work this week. It's one of those guys that you just don't know what they like or do for fun. I have always liked this herd of cows stamp from the Cottage Stamper. I could have done the "Herd it's you're Birthday" sentiment, but nah.....! I did a simple Happy Birthday but the inside says "That's No Bull." This bevy of beauties was colored with pencils and OMS. I used a simple, green gingham dp and black dotted swiss ribbon as an accent.
My second card of the day is a cute, cute little sweetie. Due to the nudity policy over at Stamp TV, I did not even try to load this little cowboy over there on my page. I think this is just the sweetest stamp. It is an older stamp by a company called, Hooked On Stamps. The lil' darlin best watch out with that wicked sun beating down! I did sponging with a rusty brown ink while placing a circle punch to create my sun. My image and sentiments were stamped in Rich Cocoa, Memento ink. My sentiment and cactus are stamps from Theresa Momber's "Out West" stamp set created for Gina K Designs. My inside sentiment is "Hope you're back in the saddle again soon". My dp is an unknown and really works well with western stamps. I wish I could find more of it! I finished off with a couple of clusters of Dew Drops as accents. Just 2 rather simple cards.
I sure hope that you are enjoying this middle weekend of August! Keep cool and be creative!
