Shopping Our Stash Challenge 24 Sports/Cowobys

or: How 'bout them Cowboys?





How 'bout them Cowboys?  When I first came up with this challenge for Shopping Our Stash,  I was thinking of FOOTBALL season, because that's what crisp, fall weather feels like to me!  Being from Texas and growing up watching the Cowboys, it was common for that phrase "how 'bout them Cowboys" to be heard quite often!

So that's where the idea for a challenge to use anything sports related, cowboy related  came from- and we stretched it to include anything CLOSE to cowboys or sports!  Think horses,  cows, ranches, farms, pick up trucks, tailgates, cowboys/cowgirls, cattle, bulls, rodeo, saddles, OR anything to do with sports- football, soccer, swimming, fishing, yoga, racing, cheerleading, skating,  walking, jogging, etc.

I did two cards....and NO Cowboy card. I must be off my game!

They use the same paper which I got from a kit. I found the sentiment for the Mouse one online..love Will Rogers!

The fishing card is also for the challenge at  Cute Card Thursdays- sketch!  I also used my neglected MS dragon fly punch and starburst circle punch too. Sentiment if from Unity, and I used Gina K cardstock and my cuttlebug for embossing.

Thanks for stopping by!
