Hello there, my inky friends! We are back to my favorite day of the week, Sunday. That means it is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players, and this week the wonderful Laurie is hostess. She has chosen a "Western" theme for us, and the DT has come up with some really fun projects. I hope you will check out their creations. They make me smile! 

I had lots of fun making my southwest cowboy cacti and his smiling friend. I used a bunch of different lawn fawn products that I thought would be perfect for this challenge. Everything was done in solid stamping except the hat and the blush, which were colored in Copics.

I'm linking up with the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp, which is Anything Goes. 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Hats Off To You, Hello Sunshine, Stuck On You, Love You A Latte (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Soft Sky, Crumb Cake (Stampin Up)
Patterned Paper: Sweater Weather (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Chocolate Chip, Baked Brown Sugar, Pear Pizzazz, Strawberry Slush, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry (Stampin Up), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle, Stitched Hillside Border, Hats Off To You, Hello Sunshine and Stuck On You Dies (Lawn Fawn)

Thanks for visiting and I do hope you will join us this week at The Paper Players!

Your South Western scene is SO cute! I love the cowboy hat! I thought of this set too, for the challenge. I keep seeing it at my local craft of these times it will be coming home with me:)

Your solid stamping looks great...I just got my mini misti yesterday and am happy how well that works! Maybe I will do more stamping instead of dies now!

Have a rootin' tootin' Sunday!
