Cute Boot-skootin' Dude :)

The Outlawz Party is well and truly underway...have you been over and checked out all the FANTASTIC entries and prizes for the different challenges yet??!!  You can even win a prize without entering a challenge, so head on over and check out all the fun.

Our Copic/Promarker challenge theme for the party is "It's a Hoedown"  What's a hoedown I hear you Tammy's words ('cause I had to ask this question too lol)...a lively country dance, usually involving square dancing!  So we'd like to see a project with a dancing, western theme...easy :)  Because I live in Aus and western isn't a big thing here, I chose to base my theme on line dancing, which is probably the closest thing to western dancing I've seen here.

So here's my card for the challenge:

Isn't he just the cutest thing you've ever seen!!  This little dude is from Digi Doodles...they noted on this image that it's been their most popular...I can understand why :)  The 'lasso' is kitchen string, sewn on by machine because I couldn't even think about trying to glue it on without making a mess everywhere lol...and I've been going to do some sewing on my cards for ages, so hopefully this will get me motivated to do some more.  Bad, considering I've sewn all my life...the things paper addiction does to you...have hardly touched my poor machine since the bug bit lol!!  The wanted stamp is a Papercraft stamp I bought at Spotlight...scanned the stamped image and added the words in my photo program.

I hope you go over and check out the other DT projects and entries...they are all amazing.

Thanks for looking....have a wonderful day :)

Yeehah! This little dude is adorable Lynne, from the top of his hat to the toes of his boots, including those little dimpled cheeks. The shading/texture in his hat is fantastic & reminds me of a friend's well worn Akubra. Love all the western elements you have combined here. Too cute... Hugs :)
