Tutorials
May 25-- Faux Wood Technique by Marilynn
May 27-- Rocker Card by Sandy

Let's get started !!

For my card on the final day of the hop I decided to go a bit outside the box -- both in the design AND the choice of stamps.  I used a Karen Burniston die set called Hanging Charm Pop-Up for the design and a non-wild west stamp set for the main image.  This is my card lying flat so that it fits into a standard envelope.



BUT . . . when you pull the tab at the top of the card, the frame/horse pops up so you can display it nicely.   What cowboy wouldn't want to celebrate his birthday long after the day is over? 


The MFP Stamp Shop sets I used on this card are two mini sets:  Cows and Cowboys (an obviously western set) and Year of the Horse (an Oriental set).



Be sure to check out the rest of the cards in today's hop.  Here's the Design Team:
 Karen
Kren
Lois   (that's me)
Marilynn
Enjoy the rest of the Hop.  We hope that we have inspired you to start your own Cowboy Fun projects this week.  Get to work on one or both of the tutorials, show us what you made by June 10th and check back on June 11, 2016, to see if you are a winner.
