Li'l Cowboy for Elisabeth Bell's World

Everyone loves animals.  I defy you to find a person who hates all animals.  Over at the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog, our challenge is Animal Antics".  I remember getting a red stick horsey for Christmas on year and I thought I was the meanest, best riding cowgirl in town!  I went around and told everyone they needed to call me Dale Evans because I had changed my name.  I really was a pitiful site when I was little!   When I saw this sweet Li'l Cowboy from Elisabeth's digital collection, he brought back all those sweet memories of me and my wild days on the range!

This little cow poke is colored with copics and I used my Jelly Roll clear pen on his mane and bridle.  The papers are from We R Memory Keepers called Anthologie and Stampin' Up, the buttons and the brass ornament are from Close To My Heart and the bakers twine is from The Twinery.

Iwsnt he just so cute you could squeeze him to death?

Here's a close up of this sweet face.  I love his pj's!

Here's a view of the inside.

I'm going to be entering him in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Cute
Crafty Cardmakers - friendship
Creative Creation Challenge Blog - Things with the letter B
Cupcake Craft - Card for a man using cool colors
Whoopsi Day Challenge - Use a digi

Make sure to come on over to our Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog and show us your animals!  Let's give those sweetie pies some love and attention, too!

Unfortunately I have had to delete your card from our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers as the challenge was to incorporate the word friend, friends, or friendship on your project and your's doesn't have the required word.

I am sure it was an oversight on your part, and we look forward to seeing you again, but please do read the challenge before entering next time.
