Howdy cowboy!

Good morning everyone I hope you are all well and having a good week so far.  We went on a little uniform shopping trip yesterday and started getting my boy's secondary school kit.  Well what can I say when he tried on that blazer - I think it suddenly hit home that my little boy is not so much my LITTLE boy anymore he looked so grown up. 
Okay onto my card.  Again I'm here to show you a little Whimsy inspiration today and its something different for me - I made a card for a man.  I don't do it very often but these images from Kenny K are just perfect.  I used the new Cheyenne from Whimsy's newest July release and she can be found HERE.  I also used the new sentiments set 'Giddy Up' by Raindrop Echo Designs.  It has some fab sentiments in it and also the 'Wanted' poster and even a cowboy hat stamp so really useful and can be found HERE in the Whimsy Store.
Image: 'Cheyenne' by Kenny K for Whimsy Stamps
Sentiments:  'Giddy Up' by Raindrop Echo Designs
Medium:  copics
Papers: Nitwits
Okay a quick side view.  I used foam pads to raise up the sentiments and 3d gel to raise the image up.
The papers were ones I printed out again and are from Nitwits as is the cowboy frame with barrel and boots and stuff.  I didn't want to over embellish the card as the background was quite busy but did add a little string and tied it sort of like a lasso around the wanted poster.
Last piccie is a close up.  
List of copics
Skin:  E000, E11, E21
Hair:  E31, E35, E37, E29
Clothes/boots/gloves:  B91, B93, B95, B97, B99/ R43, R46, R59
I've just seen actually on the close up that I forgot to go around the edge of the image with a black pen so you can see little bits of white where I've cut her out.  That's just going to annoy me now but that's what you get for doing it at 2 a.m.!!!
Challenges I would like to enter
Okay time to go and do a little colouring I think.  The kiddiewinkles are happy on the Xbox so I'm going to grab me some crafty time for half hour.
