Just a couple "Westerns"

That is Western cards for a friend and the Catered Crop challenge. :) This is "Handsome Hank" from Starving Artists stamps- The sentiment is computer generated. I used memento tuxedo black ink and colored him with copics.  Over at the challenge blog "Catered crop" you can use any of the ingredients or techniques listed to make your card or project. The dp is old and I am working on trying to use up my dp! :)  My friend is a big time horse lover so these cards are per her request!
Below is a simple card using a stamp set that I picked up long time ago- I think Inkadinkado= horses.
Dp is BG cappella.
thanks for looking- :)

Christmas Past

Counting down the days as I am sure most of you are! :)  Hope to finish my gift shopping on Monday.  Meantime, we are feeling a little sentimental these days at my house.  My fil who is the BEST DAD in the world was told he wont have too much time left with us here.  That being said, we are cherishing every moment we have left with him since we love him so very much.  My oldest son wont be home for Christmas either- he hopes to make it home next month.  Here is a card I made for my son with a picture of my in-laws on one of their first Christmas'... and my mil is pregnant here too!  The jury is still out on just which boy (there are 3) she is pregnant with but we love this pic just the same.  I used some red cord cardstock and some red print scraps along with a strip from MME snowflake dp and some Graphic 45 punch outs.  I LOVE vintage and they were certainly a lovely couple...dont you think?  TFL!

Shirley's 2 Girls Home for the Holidays.....

Over at the challenge blog for Shirley's 2 Girls the challenge is to use "flocking" on your card.  I got this cute digi called "Greetings" and ofcourse I colored it with copics.  I cant help but think of my oldest who wont be home for holidays  this year and feel sad.  Nothing like being home for Christmas and celebrating with family.  Such is life!  I used some Christmas flower soft on the 2 little trees here and the little string of lights are from a garage sale I stopped at over the summer..... I guess they must have some how "shrunk" so the sellers had to put them in their garage sale.....  :)... Dp is Cosmo Cricket circa 1934.  So if you are still making Christmas cards LIKE ME...make one with some flocking and join the challenge with us to win a sweet prize from "the girls"...   TFL!

Yes, I am STILL working on getting some out!  Dp is mostly BG and I LOVE this EK snowflake border punch!  Sentiments are computer generated and I colored with Copics and Prisma pencils.  TFL!  I REALLY need to Christmas shop and decorate now......   :)
