Howdy Sheriff!!!


I was asked to create one of the designs for High Hopes Stamps' November Project of the Month. If you've purchased from High Hopes before, you know that they have a special collection of stamps each month that, if purchased together, are available at a discount!! Well, I feel super lucky about doing this month's POTM because I got to play with these awesome brand new stamps!!!

Is he just 'da bomb' or what??? I just love these new roly poly happy snowmen!!! The set of stamps for November includes the Cowboy Snowman, the Sheriff's Star, the Cowboy Boot, the snowflakes background stamp and that adorable sentiment which reads "Roundin' up some winter fun!".

They were SO much fun to play with!! I pulled out my Wanted Designer Papers by Stampin' Up and the colours were perfect for this Cowpoke!! I stamped him in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on white Papertrey cardstock which is super white! I coloured him in using my matching SU markers and stamped the snowflakes all around using Sage Shadow. The card base is a Chocolate Chip square and I used a couple of different Wanted designs for the patterned papers. I stamped two of the cowboy boots and added some sparklies with my Sakura Stardust gel pen to the gold areas including the stars. I pop dotted the sentiment and added three pieces of brown linen thread at the top!!! I just LOVE him!!!

I've been assured that this new set of Project of the Month stamps will be added to the High Hopes website at some point today, so get your credit cards ready to order!! And there MAY be some others added to the 'Hot off the Press' section as well!!!

Check back tomorrow when I share another creation I came up with using this set of COOL stamps!!! Heehee!!

I feel like saying "yee ha!" what an unusual card for xmas - love it! Your Mum left a comment on my blog - what a coincidence, my son is engaged to a girl from Liskeard and lives in Pensilva but works out of Menheniot! I live in Saltash, so only just in the county, but was born and bred the other side of the River at Bere Alston. Do say hello to your Mum from me.
