Happy Father's Day, Cowboy!

Wishing all those wonderful Dad's out there a very happy Father's Day!  As promised here is the Father's Day card I made for my Father-in-law.  He loves westerns!  Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and anything John Wayne-ish is right up his alley!





















Cartridges used:  Paper Doll Dress Up and Create-A-Critter ("Howdy" cut).

I have a birthday next week and have decided to celebrate by posting a new birthday card each and every day starting tomorrow (Monday).  So make sure you stop by and check it out . . . their might even be some birthday blog candy for you to win!

~ Jen

P.S. I have entered my card in the following challenges:

Whimsical Wednesday Father's Day Challenge
Crazy About Cricut's Thankful Thursday Challenge

Aw, this is just too cute! I love that little cowboy with his roughed up face. The inside sentiment goes so well with the whole design. Terrific job.

Hi Jen!
Im on board with all the gals and Im loving his 5 o'clock shadow. Your cowboy is looking great with it and he kind of does remind me of John Wayne.
Hope you have an amazing birthday week celebration.
