CSSC Dude Ranch

Hello - this is my second post today and it is my second week as Guest Designer for Cowgirls Sunday Stampen' Challenge .  The theme this week is Sorbet/Ice Cream Flavours and I bet you can't pick what this flavour is....it is a YUMBLY one and I will tell you further down the post!!! LOL!

This is my second week as the Julky Guest Designer and I am lovong these images - how adorable are these two little 'dudes'.
Just quietly, over on SSC, some of the Twisted Sistahs go wild for cowboys - the WWW Man sends them crazy...many  a cowboy card has the sentiment 'Cowboy butts, drive me nuts!' as tempted as I was to use that sentiment, I could not bring myself to do it!  LOL!  These are just little boys and too adorable!

I have printed the image twice, coloured the boys on the top layer and cut them out, coloured them with SU Chalks and popped them up on foam dots, placing them onto the first layer.  The fence posts have been coloured with SU Chalks and sponged with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Walnut Stain.

The ticketed image is part of a RAK from my Twisted Sistah and dear friend, Pat Smethers.....she is smitten with the WWW man and I know she will love these darling boys!.  I have layered it onto blue CS and then attached it with one of the Star Brads, also from Pat, as is that gorgeous leather look DP.  All edges are sponged with Distressing Ink, apart from the torn edge....I left this unsponged due for variation!  Have you figured out my ice cream flavour yet - Blueberry Chocolate Swirl - so yumbly and all those antioxidants!  LOL!
