Lilo's Fun Friday #21 - Howdy Pardner!

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all having a good day.  I guess like the rest of the world everyone is experiencing some weird weather.  For the past few days it's been nice and sunny here in California.  Definitely spring weather and then today I leave the house and it's overcast and gloomy.  What gives?  I hope by the time I leave the office the sun will be shining.  Hope the weather is fabulous in your neck of the woods.

One of my many co-workers is expecting her first child and we had a nice small luncheon/baby shower for her here at the office.  I made this card using a stamp I bought a few years ago from a company called Stamp Oasis.  The image is called Little Cowboy and he's one of a collection called Little Lovin's.  These images are so adorable and I had to limit myself on how many I would get, I actually wanted them all.  Here's a link to the site with all the Little Lovin's.  This would be the second card she's gotten from me because I had already given her and her husband a card for her other baby shower two weeks ago.  My reasoning?  I didn't want to be the only one who didn't give her something so I made a pretty easy circle card and gave them some diapers.  Little did I know she loves cowboys so she was really touched by the card. 

Isn't he a cutie pie? The horse too?  I can't believe it's taken me this long to ink him up and give him a home!  I'm so bad!  Well better late than never.  I used a scalloped lacey and regular circle spellbinder die for this card.  Distressed the inside with two kinds of distress inks and colored with Copics.  I added a bit of doodling around the edge of the circle and a handwritten sentiment.  Pretty easy peasy!

Well it's time for me to giddyup on outta here!  (lol)  Hope you all have a great weekend!  If you are in the Los Angeles area and don't have anything to do on Sunday stop by the Pink Parlour at the Santa Anita racetrack.  Here's the link for all the details.

**BTW, my friend Rachel is having a stamp sale.  Check out her blog for details.**
