Stamps R Us Challenge

Our Stamps R Us challenge is a little different this time.  The theme is to make a birthday card for Operation Write Home.  Make an A2 sized birthday card using any products for your cards except glitter and send it to one of the Operation Write Home shippers listed on the Operation Write Home main blog. 

We are being sponsored this week by The Paper Shelter, and the DT got to work with some of their wonderful digital images.  I hope you will join our challenge this week, it’s for a wonderful cause, and you get a chance at a wonderful prize by The Paper Shelter.  Good luck!

Little Cowboy

My image is called “Little Cowboy”, it can also be purchased as a colored digi, which this one is.  I’ve never used a colored digital before, and must admit I like it.  If you are in a pinch and need a card in a hurry, a colored image is the way to go!

The designer paper is by 3 Bugs In A Rug, and the brads are by Doodlebug.  The buckle, and stars are from the dollar store.  The sentiment is computer generated.
