Alota Cowboy

I followed the sketch over at A Spoonful of Sugar for this card. And over at Roses on Paper they want you to use the colors of Fall - orange, brown and warm red. The wee Cowboy is an Alota stamp and the papers are Dovecraft. I saw them ages ago and decided to get them for a change in colours. And, yep, they lay in the bottom of the draw unused. So I thought they would be perfect for the colors of Fall. The Hey Cowboy is also from Alota stamps. I found the mini buttons in a drawer, so you'll probably be seeing them on several cards.

Oh - and I was asked what kind of dog Bonnie is (profile Pic). Well she's a Jack Russell Terrier - Parsons type.We have 2 others - Bruiser - a black and tan Shortie Jack Russell and Bella - a Tri colour miniture Jack Russell. And Boy is she mini. I call her a handbag dog.

And someone commented on my bows. Well I have to confess - I have a little help with those. I use a bow maker by Keepsake card crafts that I got from But I know you can get the at other places too. I have to admit - I couldn't do bows without it. Such a simple tool, easy to use and with great result. I then glue the bow to my card.
