Hello again peeps. I hope you've all had a good week. The weather's taken a bit of a turn hasn't it? I feel so sorry for all the flood victims again.

Anyway, this week is challenge #136 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and our theme is for a male. Easy peasy eh? Just make a card (or summat else) for a bloke or a little boy. Our sponsor this week, for the last time ever, is DIGI DOODLE SHOP. Judy is closing down in a weeks time and I wish her and her mum all the best for the future. I used Bodytot Cowboy for my card this week and my papers are from the Fancy Pants 'Country Boutique' pad.

The leaves are a Cheery Lynn die, I did my own sentiment and the ribbon and mesh are from my stash.
After I'd coloured his shirt, I really didn't like it much but didn't want to do another image and it took me some time to figure out what I could do. Anyway, I got my blender pen out with a skinny nib on and just drew some straight lines to give him a checked shirt. I think it's worked quite well. What do you think?

This one really made me smile Lorraine. I knew a few cowboys who looked like him in Texas. Great image... love his beard and 10 gallon hat (could even be a 20 gallon one). His shirt looks great and love you layout and desing. Fab ribbon
