Cowboy Christmas


This one is for Jack and Carol Owens, two fabulous friends (celebrating 60 years married in the spring!)we met through my awesome sister, Sandy. Jack and Carol have stables in the sierra foothills, where my sis keeps her horses. Both of them are cutting champs (Carol continues to compete, and Jack is a judge). Carol is also an artist and bronze sculpturist-see her work here! I saw this image over at Sassy Cheryl's and it's perfect for Jack and Carol. Followed the sketch this morning at Sketch Saturday - love the sketch! I also added the fir trees (sculpted and layered in Debby4000-style) found at Stamp Fairy - Gerda is having a BIG 50% off sale - check it out! I rummaged through my stash and found the perfect Cosmo Cricket patterns for my project. The sentiment is from Paper Dreams of Mine that was a freebie. Did a bit of dry embossing with the cuttlebug and snowflake punching with Martha Stewart.

Have a busy and productive week, friends!
(((hugs)))
