I can't believe how fast the temperature dropped around here lately! It's already into the low 40's every morning and there's ice build up on the car windscreen. Brrr! Although I wouldn't complain if this was as bad at the winters got here....*sigh* a girl can dream, right?
Here's another look at Cowboy McCoy from Claudia & Company!
What a cutie he is! I was waiting for the right image to come along so I could break open my Pyrus paper pad from Basic Grey and McCoy was perfect for it! LOVING this paper collection!
I colored McCoy in with my reinkers and aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum (SBV) (it's not really vellum!). The edge of each panel was sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and machine stitched to some coordinating cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto some scrap SBV, cut it out with the Labels Four Nestibility, cropped the top off it, sponged the edges with more Distress Ink and added the button and twine detail.
In case you missed the announcement during release day, Claudia from DieCutsRUs (and boss lady of Claudia & Co stamps) will donate $1 for every single Claudia and Company rubber stamp purchased at Die Cuts R Us during the month of October, and $2 for every photopolymer/rubber stamp set to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation! It's for a fabulous cause, so isn't it about time you picked up a cowboy?!? LMBO!
Thanks for stopping by!
