Kick Up Your Heels

     Hi,  I wanted to share a card I made for my brother of choice who is a doctor, rancher, cowboy, and all around sweet heart.  Our family adopted him years ago because he is just to good to let get away.  The kids call him Uncle Cowboy Dr. Justin.

    I didn't get a shot of the inside of this card but it is decorated with the same papers from the outside and has a heart inside with a computer generated sentiment "Don't Horse Around - Be My Valentine".

    This also happens to be the week we post the Bombshell Sketch Challenge over on the Bombshell Blog.  So to kill to birds with one stone, I used the Bombshell Sketch for this card.  I used my brand spanking new  Bombshell "Bucking Bronco" stamp set for this card.  I just love this set, anything western and/or rodeo is a big hit with me and mine.  My dad  was a bull riding, bronc riding, tough son of a gun in his younger days.  He's still tough just doesn't rodeo anymore gave it up when he turned 50 or was that 60.

     Now, if you would all like to play along with this challenge you have the chance of winning your choice of a set of bombshell stamps.  How kewl is that?  Just follow along on the sketch and post to the Mr. linky dealie at the bottom of the blog post Here.
