Howdy Pardner!

Good Morning from a damp and dismal Blackpool! I can't believe how wet it is, just in time as we try and show our friends from Texas the lovely sights in the UK - from a steamed up car no doubt!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


and this also sees the release of a new set of digis by Wendy over at Digital Delights.  The new release is a Cowboy inspired set and let me tell you they are fab!! Here is what I made:

Isn't he the cutest?  He is called Lil Billy and you can get him here at Digital Delights.  What I love about Wendy's images is that you always have the option of purchasing a pre-coloured version if you are pushed for time or just don't like colouring. I have coloured him with my Copics and he was a joy to colour.  I have also used the Wild West Accessories Set for the barrel, badge and Wanted poster.  I digitally put Billy's face in the Wanted poster which was easy to do - believe me it has to be for me to do it!!  The papers are from a First Edition pad (can't remember which one).  I have distressed the poster with some DI and used my paper distresser all around the edges. I have put some scrim on and put the badge on some foam squares to support the easel part of my easel card.  If you want some more inspiration please pop over to Delightful Challenges and see what my talented team mates have made.  We are sponsored this week by:

and one lucky winner will receive a $20 store gift card.  So get your distressed heads on and enter our challenge, you don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it if you do and then you can have two entries!! I would like to enter the following challenges:

Pixie Dust Studio - For the Boys
Southern Girls - About the Boys
Divas by Design - One for the Boys

I will be back later today with some exciting news! Well that's it from me for now I'm off to go and play in the rain - yee haw!!! Take care xx
